    Most people don't rely on govt. figures and usually go by media reports which may or may not potray to right picture. The govt. has released a white paper on FDI in India to show which are the top states that attract investment and FDI, the top sectors in the industry that attracts FDI and the sources for the period from 2000 - 2011.

    For more details please access the paper here http://dipp.nic.in/English/Publications/FDI_Statistics/2012/india_FDI_April2012.pdf

    I have just put some screenshots of the interesting sections here



    In the sectors, we see the biggest sector is the services sector which usually is the financial services sector. Followed by telecom, construction and IT related activities. All other sectors that are not listed got less than 5% of the overall FDI inflows.

    Sources of inflow, Mauritius on top followed by Singapore and then the UK.

    And finally the states that actually receive investment inflows. Maharashtra and Delhi capital region lead the pack with a massive 32% and 20% of all investment inflows in the 2000-2011 period. Other states got between K'taka, TN, Gujarat and AP got between 4-6%. All other states not listed got 1% or less

    When they are accounting for Delhi, is it being stated for Delhi/NCR, more specifically Delhi/Gurgoan/Noida?

    Hmmmm....Mauritius is our biggest investor:facepalm:

    Can someone tell me why GOI is incapable of stopping this influx of money from tax haven like Mauritius? There has to be some loophole coz even the law can't get to them.

    They are doing it now using GAAR (General anti-avoidance Rules).

    Yes, it mentions that Delhi office covers parts of UP and Haryana which is roughly the NCR region
