    FDI Relaxation In Aviation Likely To Help Find Buyers For Air India

    The recent Budget announcement to further relax foreign direct investment norms and policies in the aviation sector may help sell Air India, as well as Jet Airways. Both commercial carriers were put up for sale after going bankrupt. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, announced in the Budget that the government is looking to ease FDI norms to facilitate overseas investment in sectors like aviation, media, insurance intermediaries, and single brand retail. "I propose to further consolidate, the gains in order to make India more attractive FDI destination. The government will examine suggestions of further opening up of FDI in aviation, media, AVGC (Animation, Visual effects, Gaming and Comics) and insurance sector in consultation with stakeholders," she said.  In her speech, Sitharaman also said that the government will continue the divestment of various Central Public Undertakings, including the national carrier, Air India. She said, “I propose to further consolidate, the gains in order to make India more attractive FDI destination. The government will examine suggestions of further opening up of FDI in aviation, media, AVGC (Animation, Visual effects, Gaming and Comics) and insurance sector in consultation with stakeholders.” This is not the first time the government tried to divest its stake in Air India. Earlier, the government tried to divest 76 per cent stake in the airlines but this attempt only met failure as the carrier did not find any takers. The government now plans to sell 100 per cent and hopes that foreign direct investment relaxations will encourage overseas buyers. Although, no clarity on the Substantial Ownership and Effective Control (SOEC) clause has yet been given. According to the SOEC clause, foreign investors cannot take complete control of the operations of the airline and be run by a board that has two third members as Indian.

    Proposed FDI Hike To Drive Up M&A Deals

    In her maiden budget, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced reforms in FDI policies in order to encourage foreign investments in India. This proposed hike is expected to benefit the M&A sector as existing overseas investors would look to raise their stakes in their Indian joint venture companies. Sitharaman is her Budget speech said that the government is contemplating to further open up foreign direct investments in aviation, media (including animation, visual effects, gaming, and comics) and the insurance sector. Apart from this, FDI norms are to be eased for the single brand retail sector. These proposals could lead to an increase in the M&A activities in some sectors but not across all sectors where FDI has been proposed, said Riaz Thigna, Director at Grant Thornton Advisory while talking to Business Line. “The first impact would be foreign firms which have already invested in these sectors, such as insurance, would increase their investments. Insurance, for instance, has long gestation and break-even periods and I don’t think there will be a lot of M&A activity,” Thigna said. The government has already approved 100 per cent FDI in the insurance intermediaries sector. The government is looking at permitting 26 per cent or 49 per cent foreign direct investment under approval route for Uploading and Streaming of news & current affairs through digital media. Currently, the FDI policy permits only 49 per cent FDI in TV channels and 26 per cent in print media. Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) is seeking a nod from stakeholders as 100 per cent FDI in Information Utilities and easier FDI regulations in contract manufacturing to push make in India is being considered. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in his Budget speech said that India’s FDI inflows in 2018-19 grew by 6 per cent to $64.37 billion. 2018 witnessed a third continuous decline in the global FDI inflows. Foreign investment inflows decreased 13 per cent in 2018 to USD 1.3 trillion from USD 1.5 trillion. "But India's FDI inflows in 2018-19 at $64 billion remained strong, a 6% growth over the previous year," she said. I propose to further consolidate, the gains in order to make India more attractive FDI destination. The government will examine suggestions of further opening up of FDI in aviation, media, AVGC (Animation, Visual effects, Gaming and Comics) and insurance sector in consultation with stakeholders,” she said.

    100 Per Cent FDI In Insurance Intermediaries Upsets Domestic Brokers

    The recent announcement by Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman to raise the limit for foreign direct investment in the insurance intermediaries sector from 49 per cent to a 100 per cent has not gone down well with domestic brokers. The industry in question accounts for Rs. 4,500- 5,000 crore. The insurance intermediaries sector includes insurance broking, insurance companies, third party administrators, surveyors and loss assessors.  “The government has taken a view on increasing FDI in India in the sector from a macro perspective. The move will have both pros and cons,” noted G Srinivasan, Director, National Insurance Academy, and former Chairman, New India Assurance. This proposal by Sitharaman has come under flak from domestic insurance brokers, consisting of direct brokers, reinsurance brokers, and composite brokers. As per them, the insurance broking industry does not require much capital and permitting 100 per cent FDI into the sector won’t ensure large equity inflows of foreign investments. The sections benefitting from this move in the insurance industry are: insurance surveyors and loss assessors, third party administrators (TPA), web aggregators and corporate agents. As of now, the insurance broking industry deals with a premium amounting to more than Rs 30,000 crore, primarily from the non-life industry which generated over Rs 1,70,000 crore of premiums during the period 2018-19. As insurance brokers receive between 15-20 per cent of commission in placing different categories of general insurance business, they account for around Rs 4,500-5,000 crore of business. According to Sohanlal Kadel, the former President of lnsurance Brokers Association of India, permitting 100 per cent FDl in India in broking when it is 49 per cent in insurance companies would be “travesty of justice as it would be a direct discrimination against local insurance brokers”. Further, this would decimate most of the Indian brokers engaged in direct insurance and reinsurance broking and who do not have a joint venture with any overseas broker. “It is very clear that 100 per cent FDI will not make any valuable contribution to the industry from the current permissible FDI limit of 49 per cent except perhaps repatriation of profit which can be more than the capital they bring in and thereby drain of our foreign exchange,” Kadel further said.
