1. Pravakar Sahoo, Sep 2010, in his article ³Realising India's FDI potential´ said that it is the time for India to realise its potential as a top destination for FDI. Forbes puts India at 77 th place ahead of China (90) in its latest list of best countries for business in 2010. It is not surprising that India has not only survived the global financial crisis, but also revived its growth rate, which has been close to 9 per cent in the recent quarters. However, India receives lower FDI compared with other developing countries such as China, Brazil and Singapore. As WIR 2010 reports, India received $34 billion in 2009, against China's $95 billion. During the period 1990 to 2009, India received only 17 per cent ($167 billion) of the total FDI inflows into China, amounting to $977 billion, a figure close to India's GDP. According to Pravakar Sahoo the important factors that impede FDI flows in India are lack of infrastructure, restrictive labour laws, absence of Centre-state co-ordination, dormant SEZ policy and lack of institutional reforms. A major obstacle to infrastructure development is cost and time overruns due to contractual and institutional failures. This is largely due to lack of co-ordination among central and state government departments on land acquisition and environmental clearances. For the resolvation of such problems he told the solution that it is time to revisit land acquisition methods and laws and develop a more decentralized process to tackle issues such as compensation, rehabilitation and resettlement. Further, a proper dispute resolution mechanism, an independent regulatory authority and an acceptable cost-recovery based pricing in the infrastructure sector is needed.

2. Ramesh Sharma, Apr 2010, in his article ³Manufacturing zones will lead to tech development´ said that to increase the share of manufacturing in GDP the proposed national manufacturing and investment zones will lead to infrastructure and technology development in the country. He expressed hope that India would become a factory of the world, for new technologies. The Commerce and Industry Ministry recently floated a discussion paper on national manufacturing policy which talks of creating National Manufacturing and Investment Zones (NMIZs) to push the manufacturing share in GDP.
