Abstract: Investment, or creation of capital, is an important determinant of economic growth. In general, investment may lead to creation of physical capital, financial capital and human capital. In combination with other factors of production and technology, investment determines the levels and growth through changes in production and consumption of goods and services. Other things being the same, less investment leads to lower economic growth with attendant consequences on reduction in income, consumption and employment. Foreign investment can reduce domestic savings gap. Hence, notwithstanding the domestic savings gap, economic growth can be increased in an open economy with inflow of foreign investment. The foreign investment in India would stimulate the domestic investments. The foreign investments are complementary to economic growth and development in developing countries like India. Investment in an economy raises output and improves standard of living of the people. Keeping this end in view, both developed and developing countries are trying their best to undertake investment programmes. Since the availability of capital is scarce in many countries due to low rate of domestic savings, hence the importance of foreign investment is ever rising. Foreign capital consists of private foreign capital and public foreign capital. Public foreign capital is otherwise financial foreign aid where as private foreign capital consists of either foreign direct investment or indirect foreign investment. In case of foreign direct investment (FDI), the private foreign investor either sets up a branch or a subsidiary in the recipient country. In the liberalized environment as economics become increasingly open, and trade between countries expand, financial transactions become global through financing trade of goods and services. Capital is the engine of economic development and this statement is gaining importance in the recent times.
