In our childhood days we have definitely listen that a dirty apple makes the other apple dirty too under the condition that they are in same basket. Same thing applies over here ,Satyam scandal hamper the image of other companies which are operating in India. But it also does not mean that other 200 companies are also corrupt.

Foreign investors would definitely think thrice before investing in an Indian company which they might do not do before this scandal. Such type of scandal hamper the image of any country.

Hi friends ! This is a wonderful topic to discuss upon.

Yes, it's true that the Satyam Scandal has brought a lot of disgrace to our nation. Certainly, the foreign investors would think twice or thrice while investing huge money in our country.

Hi! friends.

Yes I agree that satyam scandal would definitely impacts foreign investments in India. We had heard lot of sayings from our childhood those are words followed according to our fulfillment.

1) As to check the rice whether it is boiled or not we check one of it.

As per above saying satyam scandal would definitely impacts foreign investments in India.

2) It is not possible to break bundle of sticks if only one stick from a bundle is removed out.

As per above saying we will sure recover from these because remaining 99% companies are performing well.

But I am pretty sure that foreign companies thinks thousand times before investing for projects in India.

Finally I want to say that instead of depending upon foreign investment, if we (as youngsters) had to work hard to develop our country and also further we can invest our projects in other countries (I mean they must wait for our investment, not we).

Thank you.

Hi Friends,

According to me, though satyam scandal has put a black mark on Indian status before other foreign countries, but we should also not forget about the other companies that are doing well in our country in providing services to the foreign countries. Bad work by one company cannot spoil the status of other countries that are doing well in our country. One cannot blame others even if only one person is bad.

Hence, the point is satyam scandal doesn't effect the foreign investments as foreign companies also have trust on other service providing companies of India.

THANK YOU.

Satyam s scandal had some effect on the news head lines but over all Indian economy is not effected. India is still a hot spot for foreighn investment and foreighn company knows that very well. It is a fact that for one company, s mistakes the whole sector is not giong to suffer, and facts say so like company, s like TCS, WIPRO, INFOSYS, COZNIJENT ETC BELONGING TO THE SAME SECTOR ARE DOING PRETTY WELL.

ONE MAJOR fact why India is a hot spot for investment. It is much cheaper to hire say 50 Indian trained engineers by a foreing firm in India than bringing the same number of employees from their same country.

THANKS.

Yes, it's true that the Satyam Scandal has brought a lot of disgrace to our nation, but it does not mean to look backward. In 100's of companies if a company is corrupt, do not mind for it and we should move forward, because there are still more 99 companies. If we sustain there for time it will not give any gain to us, only there will be loss of time because time is very precious. So for that international companies should invest in our country.

Yes friends. Satyam scandal, such a stain for India. Foreign invester loose trust on idian companies cz of this satyam scandal. But according to my point of view, when ever one thing published in the news paper, the effect of that is being live in human being jst for a week. At this day, 22nd feb, 2012. No one cares about satyam scandle, even they forget the name also. So, my meaning to say is, forget the past and live in present. Yaa this thing is also for the foreginors. Indian economy is not affected by this scandal, and this true, no one cares what happend in the past.

Indian economy suggest the higest values of sensexs, gold, silver. Today sensex is 18500. What this suggest?is there a recession time?no ofcource not. So, forget satyam, focus on present. Thats it. Thnks.

A big Hello to all my dear Friends!

This is a splendid topic to discuss upon. As far as I think, as a ocean is made up of small small rivers so it does not matter if one of the rivers has separated from others it won't affect the ocean flow.

SO no doubt that Satyam Scandal was a huge dismal for our economy but we can not judge the performance of our economy on the basis of performance of only one company.

Today we see a lot of foreign Direct Investment is being done in retail sector as government has allowed 51% FDI in retail sector recently and many other likewise measures.

So I would say at the end that Foreigners can freely come, invest and can make large profits in our economy.

Yes I am agree with given statement because every investor wants only profit but after this satyam scandle their trust in Indian companies will not be same. It will force to investors to think about before investing but in a same direction many other giant companies are making more profit for the Indian economy. Here this point is also considerable that there is not any country which is completely free from the curruption.

In a list of curruption india's position is 87th, so we can say India is at much better place then any other big countries. Now growth of Indian economy is such a satisfactory because India is called emerging developing country.

Yes, exactly Satyam scandal leave the black spot on Indian economy but now we have so many rules and regulation to solve this type of problem.

Now people invest in India just because they are feel secured to invest. Like SEBI, CRISIL and many regulatory bodies are working good. To secured investment of foreigners. Just take a example of SAHARA PRAMUKH. He also cheated investors but SEBI. And other regulatory body take stringent steps to cover all amount from Sahara group only.

So we can't say like now investment in India is not secured. Yes they all are not good for foreign investment but some how recover it also.

THANK YOU FRIENDS.
