India has been a mixed bag for foreign investors. Especially those looking to stay invested in the country for a long time notably foreign direct investment (FDI). Some have found the endless bureaucratic hurdles, land acquisition and environment issues a big detriment to their plans in the country. But there have been many success stories as well. Indeed, as today's chart of the day shows that there are quite a few Indian arms of MNCs that have made significant strides in India. This is evident from the fact that the market cap of these companies now account for a significant chunk of the global market value of these MNCs. Some MNCs have realised the potential in the country and accordingly raised their stakes in their Indian arms. Others have not been so lucky.
