While your data point is correct, there is a small thing I would like to clarify here. FPI holding value in Indian equities has touched an all-time record of $555 billion in March 2021. As you rightly said, that is a value accretion of $105 billion or 23% since September 2020. This has been brought out in a recent report by Bank of America Securities. However, this is a total of fresh flows and value accretion.

You would recollect that the FPIs have infused $37 billion in FY21 alone, of which most of the flows came in the second half of the fiscal. So perhaps half has come from fresh flows and half from value accretion. In comparison, the total value of all domestic institutions in Indian equities was just about $203 billion.
