India’s thriving creative sectors taps the nation’s diversity and energy, and increasingly disseminates content globally – from Bollywood block busters and streaming hits, to Indian cricket and cultural exports. Led by the traditional segments such as movies, television, and print, there is also a rapidly expanding industry for streaming videos, gaming systems, and diverse set of over-the-top applications. With revenue nearing $30 billion, 1,000 licensed channels, and multi-platform distribution network, the country also produces some 1,000 movies a year. The M&E Committee, which includes satellite communications members, aims to create direct links between Indian and American businesses and government leaders with the ultimate goal of creating a $100 billion media and entertainment industry.

Increased FDI Caps
Consistently advocated for the removal of FDI caps, and the government has incrementally raised FDI limits in several M&E segments.
