India recieved over 300 billion US dollar Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) milestone between April 2000 and September 2016. Thirty three per cent of the FDI came through the Mauritius route, apparently because the investors wanted to take advantage of India's double taxation avoidance treaty with the island nation. 
India received 101.76 billion US dollar from Mauritius between April 2000 and September 2016, according to data compiled by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion. The cumulative FDI inflows during the period amounted to 310.26 billion dollar. 
The inflows in the first half of the current financial year was 21.62 billion dollar. The other big investors have been from Singapore, the US, UK and the Netherlands. Commenting on the USD 300 billion mark, industry bodies Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry(FICCI) and CII have said that India is perceived as a safe and dynamic destination by global investors. 
FICCI President Harshavardhan Neotia said that they see this trend of increasing inflows further strengthening in the coming years. CII in a statement said, FDI flows have increased significantly and consistently in the last two years and the country would continue to remain as one of the most attractive destinations in the foreseeable future.
