While the government has not banned Chinese flows into the Indian market, the government has clarified via SEBI that any form of direct and indirect investments by China or any of China’s neighbours would entail prior government approval. This was necessitated after the US and other European countries had objected to the fact that Chinese investment companies had used the correction in these companies post the pandemic to increase their stakes. The government has clarified that this is more a measure of caution and nothing else.
