India is one of the preferred locations for foreign nationals, foreign companies and NRI’s due to its rising economy and plenty of available resources. Therefore, it would be easy doing business in India for foreign nationals. The 100% shares of a Wholly owned subsidiary company in India are owned by another company (foreign company). A foreign company is a company which is located outside India. For example XYZ inc. UK.
A foreign company can set up its operations in India where 100% FDI is permitted under the automatic route. Under automatic route FDI is allowed without any prior approval of Government and Reserve Bank of India.
A company can be registered as private limited or public limited following all the rules and regulations framed by the Companies Act, 2013.
