I feel there is no harm in allowing them to make investments in India for following reasons :

1. No company will throw money just like that for any political reasons.

3) From the above, two thing are quite clear. First, GOI and its various agencies / departments / organs are not technically competent to put their acts together. They just make noises to escape from their responsibilities and try to pass on the bucks to their political masters. Finally, business is more important to GOI than anything else. Indian business lobby is more active to do business with China and this lobby influences GOI decisions to circumvent the security aspect. De ...more
