Investment by FII & corporate houses is 67% i.e. 335000.
Investment by offshore funds and NRI is 27% i.e. 274090.

Investment other than FII and corporate house is 33%.

Investment by offshore funds and NRI is 27%.

33:27 = 335000:x.

X = 335000*27/33.

= 274090.

Why we aren't taking corporate houses % i.e., 33+34 = 67.

Only 33% is considered.

Investments other than (excluding FII and corporate houses).


(i.e, investments by NRI,OFF share,other,national banks is =11%+16%+4%+2%=33%.
(I.e, 335000)

Now investment of NRI and offshore will be =33%-4%-2%=27%
So,(27*335000)/33
=274090.9091~= 274100.
