For financial year 2019-20, the foreign direct investments or FDI continued to be extremely strong by comparative standards even as the foreign portfolio investments or the FPI flows continued to remain tepid. While direct investments in the form of FDI were up by $19 billion, portfolio investments actually fell by $13.7 billion, especially due to March sell-off.

The net claims of non resident Indians or NRIs in India fell by $57 billion during the year. During fiscal 2019-20, international financial liabilities increased by $16.7 billion. Net claims of NRIs in India fell by $45 billion in Q4 which included $28 billion reduction in NRI assets in India and $17 billion of outward investments by Indian residents.
