FDI inflows in information and broadcasting sector India 2012-2019

In fiscal year 2018, the value of foreign direct investment in India's information and broadcasting sector amounted to over 600 million U.S. dollars. This was a drop from the previous fiscal year when the FDI value stood at 1.52 billion dollars. The main reason for the spike in FDI valuation in fiscal year 2017 was due to two major mergers and acquisition deals of PVR Cinemas Ltd. and Dish TV respectively.
However, the estimates from the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 show that the FDI inflow for that year has gone over seven billion dollars, indicating strong headwinds for this sector in India.
