Bayer Vapi, Flag Telecom Singapore Pte, Oxigen Services (India), Corona Remedies Pvt, You Broadband India and Star Den Media Services are among the foreign investment proposals listed before the FIPB.

Besides, investment proposals of Tikona Digital Networks and Ordain Health Care Global are also on the agenda. India allows FDI in most of the sectors through automatic route but investment in certain sectors is cleared by FIPB.

FDI proposals of Rs 5,000 crore and beyond require approval of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs.

In the 2015-16 fiscal ended March 31, the FDI inflows in the country grew by 29 per cent to USD 40 billion as against USD 30.93 billion in 2014-15.

FDI for 2015-16 was the highest since 2000-01. The services segment attracted the highest investments of USD 6.88 billion followed by computer hardware and software (USD 5.90 billion), trading business (USD 3.84 billion) and automobile industry (USD 2.52 billion).
