In terms of sub-regulation (1) of Regulation 5 of Notification No. FEMA 20/ 2000 – RB dated May 3, 2000, a person resident outside India or an entity incorporated outside India may purchase shares or convertible debentures of an Indian company under FDI Scheme, subject to compliance with the extant pricing  guidelines.

It has been decided that in cases, where non-residents (including NRIs) make investment in an Indian company in compliance with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956, by way of subscription to Memorandum of Association, such investments may be made at face value subject to their eligibility to invest under the FDI scheme.
