The country was ranked eighth last year, as it attracted inflows worth $48 billion.
  • To burnish production-linked incentive (PLI) schemes, the government is considering an overhaul of some of them relating to sectors such as textiles and pharma, and making incentive payments quarterly, officials in the know said. In a bid to cut the delay in processing incentive claims, the government is looking at switching to a quarterly disbursement of incentives. Currently, in most schemes, incentives are annual. As a result, hardly any progress is seen for most of the year.
  • Gold and Silver prices were trading with marginal gains in the early trade on Friday.
  • Crude oil futures slid in early trade on Friday on the prospect of higher-for-longer interest rates in Asia and the United States, while falling U.S. oil inventories kept prices from moving lower.
