FIPB locks real estate investment for 3 years
Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) has said that the foreign investors in Indian real estate cannot sell their stakes to another foreign investor before three years.

FIPB, the authority which makes policy on FDI, has cancelled a provision in FDI policy that lets off foreign players from the rule in cases where fund transfer is from one non-resident to another. Till now, this three-year lock-in was applicable only on foreign investment in real estate and not on investors.

The FIPB view is contrary to the stand taken by the department of industrial policy and promotion (Dipp), the nodal agency that formulates FDI rules in the country.
