About India

India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, spanning a period of more than 4,000 years, and witnessing the fusion of several customs and traditions, which are reflective of the rich culture and heritage of the country. It is a world of splendid colour and rich culture, be it magnificent monuments, heritage temples or tombs.

India is one of only two countries in the world with a population of over one billion and is the world's largest democracy. It has grown significantly, in both population and strategic importance, in the last twenty years. India has emerged as an important regional power, possessing one of the world's largest military forces.

The Indian climate varies from a tropical climate in the south to a more temperate climate in the north. India gets its rains through the monsoons. India has a rich and unique cultural heritage, preserving its established traditions throughout history. Many dynamic cultural practices and monuments, such as the Taj Mahal, have been inherited from the rule of Mughal emperors. Notable is the country's diverse and extensive vegetarian cuisine loaded with spices.

Traditional dresses include the Sari and Salwar Kameez, which vary across the regions in their colours and styles. Men wear the Kurta and Dhoti. India produces the world's highest number of films annually through Bollywood, based in Mumbai.

The Indian constitution recognizes 22 languages.

Indian Experience

The Indian economy is the fourth largest economy of the world on the basis of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP). It is one of the most attractive destinations for business and investment opportunities due to a huge manpower base, diversified natural resources and strong macro-economic fundamentals. Also, the process of economic reforms initiated since 1991, has been providing an investor-friendly environment through a liberalised policy framework spanning the whole economy.

India's economy is on the fulcrum of an ever-increasing growth curve. With positive indicators such as a stable 8-9 percent annual growth, rising foreign exchange reserves of close to US$ 180 billion, a booming capital market with the popular "Sensex" index topping the majestic 14,000 mark, the Government estimated FDI flow of US$ 12 billion in this fiscal and a more than 35 percent surge in exports, it is easy to understand why India is a leading destination for foreign investment.
