Foreign Direct Investment is considered the primary source of non-debt finance for the Country, which can help in enabling the generation of employment, capital inflow, access to improved technology, and human resource development. The Crisis of Balance of Payment, which highlighted the inherent weaknesses in the Indian Financial System, has been the catalyst in enabling the government to develop policies promoting the liberalization and privatization era in India. Foreign investors have been wary of their investment in the host country. The BITs ensure the protection of the investment of foreign investors. The Researcher in the present paper analyzes the relationship between foreign investment and the number of bilateral investment treaties that India has entered into, after adopting the Model BIT, in 2016.
