The Central India is, therefore, making all efforts to attract and facilitate FDI investment from Non Residents including Overseas Corporate Bodies that are owned by them. Thus, FDI is permitted under the following forms; namely through: 1. Financial collaborations. 2. Joint ventures and technical collaborations. 3. Capital markets via Euro issues. 4. Private placements or preferential allotments. Investment in Development of Integrated Townships and Related Infrastructure With a view to catalyze investments in development of townships and infrastructure, 100 per cent FDI is allowed under the automatic route in townships, housing and construction development projects and hospitality sectors such as residential complexes, shopping centers, malls, multiplexes, Cineplex’s, commercial offices, hotels/service apartments, resorts, hospitals, educational institutions. NRIs and OCBs are allowed to invest in the following activities: 1. Development of serviced plots and construction of built up residential premises, 2. Real estate development covering construction of residential and commercial premises, including business centers and offices, 3. Development of townships, 4. Development of city and region level urban infrastructure facilities including roads and bridges, 5. Manufacturing of building materials and their application, 6. Investment in participatory ventures in (a) to (e) above, 7. Investment in Housing Finance Institutions, which is also open to FDI as an NBFC. Foreign investors are still barred from acquiring and trading in undeveloped land. The policy has already attracted several large financial entities and private equity funds to participate in large real estate projects.
