12.2 Investment by FIIs under Portfolio
Investment Scheme

The RBI has given
general permission to SEBI-registered FIIs/sub-accounts to invest under the
Portfolio Investment Scheme (PIS).

• The total holding
of each FII/sub-account under this scheme should not exceed 10 percent of the
total paidup capital or 10 percent of the paid-up value of each series of
convertible debentures issued by the Indian company.

• The total holding
of all the FIIs/sub-accounts put together should not exceed 24 percent of the
paid-up capital or the paid-up value of each series of convertible debentures.
This limit of 24 percent can be increased to the sectoral cap/statutory limit
as applicable to the Indian company concerned, by passing a resolution of its
Board of Directors, followed by a special resolution to that effect by its
General Body.

• A domestic asset
management company or portfolio manager who is registered with the SEBI as an
FII for managing the funds of a sub-account can make investments under the
scheme on behalf of: a person resident outside India who is a citizen of a
foreign state; or a corporate body registered outside India.

• However, such
investment should be made out of the funds raised, collected, or brought from
outside through a normal banking channel. The investments by such entities
should not exceed 5 percent of the total paid-up equity capital or 5 percent of
the paid-up value of each series of convertible debentures issued by an Indian  company, and should also not exceed the
overall ceiling speci?ed or FIIs.
