Net foreign direct investment (FDI) flows into India reached $15.7 billion in India’s 2006-­07 fiscal year, more than triple the $4.7 billion recorded during 2005-­06, with the largest share of FDI flows from Mauritius, followed by the United States and the United Kingdom.

Cointegration and Granger causality tests are used to examine semi-strong form efficiency. Semi-strong form efficiency is not supported as these tests indicate a high degree of interdependence among the South ...
