To promote the systematized development and maintenance of a healthy foreign exchange market in India along with other various objectives, Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 (FEMA) was enacted by the parliament. Since its introduction, a lot of relaxations have been introduced by Reserve Bank for smooth facilitation of trade operations. Recently in order to survive these unprecedented times, Government has reviewed the extant FDI policy in order to curb the opportunistic takeovers/acquisitions of Indian companies due to the current pandemic.
