 A survey by global consultancy firm Ernst & Young (E&Y) sees India as
 the world''s most attractive investment destination. With the opening up
 of foreign direct investment (FDI) in several sectors, India is today
 an eye-catching destination for overseas investors. The relaxation of
 norms by the government has created a vast opportunity for foreign
 players, who are competing for a greater role in the Indian market.
 Sectors projected to do well in the coming years include automotive,
 technology, life sciences and consumer products.
 India has also become a hotbed for research and development (R&D) and
 the country is now a preferred destination for automotive R&D, as per a
 study on the Global Top 500 R&D spenders by globalization advisory and
 market expansion firm, Zinnov. The study noted that there was strong
 potential for growth in areas such as engineering analytics and that
 significant talent could be found in ''Deccan Triangle'' region, which
 encom- passes Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
 The World Bank has projected an economic growth rate of 5.7 per cent in
 FY15 for India, due to a more competitive exchange rate and several
 significant investments going forward.
 India is the third biggest economy in the world in terms of purchasing
 power parity (PPP), according to a World Bank report. The country was
 ranked 10th in the previous survey conducted in 2005.
 The stakes held by foreign institutional investors (FII) in Indian
 companies touched a record high in the fourth quarter of FY 14. The
 estimated value of FII holdings in India stands at US$ 279 billion.
 The cumulative amount of FDI equity inflow into India stood at US$
 212,031million in the period April 2000- February 2014, while FDI
 equity inflow during April 2013-February 2014 was recorded as US$
 20,766 million, as per data published by Department of Industrial
 Policy and Promotion (DIPP).
 Thus, the emphasis is on a massive road connectivity plan which will
 tie the region together and subsequently enhance economic objectives.
 Also, agricultural gross domestic product (GDP) in the country is
 projected to grow by over five per cent in the current agricultural
 year (July 2013-May 2014).
 The Business environment remains extremely challenging and the
 recessionary economic conditions leading to slowdown in demand and
 inflation pushed scale up of input costs left its adverse imprint on
 overall perform- ance for 2013-2014.
 Due to sluggishness in economy and lack of demand by consumers, Gross
 income from operations remained at 9.58 Lac in comparison to last
 years'' figure of 10.16 Lac. In term of Net Loss, the same was of 0.20
 Lac in comparison to last years'' net Profit of 0.09 Lac.
