Foreign investors have pumped in close to 3 billion dollars in the Indian capital markets so far this month due to high nominal and real yields and stable macroeconomic conditions. Most of the funds have been infused in the debt markets.
According to the latest depository data, FPIs invested a net sum of Rs. 2,806 crore in the stock markets and another Rs. 15,132 crore in debt, taking the total to Rs. 17,938 crore during October 3-27.
This follows a net outflow of over Rs. 10,000 crore from the capital markets last month. Prior to that, they had pumped in Rs. 1.78 lakh crore in the preceding six months (February-August).
