RBI for proper monitoring of foreign direct investment

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has revamped its overseas direct investment application process to provide banks fast and easy accessibility to data for reference purposes and to improve the “coverage and ensure proper monitoring of the flows in a dynamic environment”. The new process will be much more nuanced than earlier, where the Indian party has to furnish more details about its investments and remittances.

The effective service tax rate is 15 per cent, including 0.5 per cent each of the Swachh Bharat cess and  Krishi Kalyan cess.
