Warburg Pincus on India

Some excerpts from the Knowledge@Wharton article on Private Equity Investments in India:

"There may be debate about the pace of reform, but not about its direction. Indian businessmen today very rarely point to government as an obstacle," Pathak says. As for that vaunted Indian bureaucracy, he mentions that Warburg repatriated its profits in 48 hours. It's easy to take money out of India, perhaps even easier than bringing it in, he jests.

One of the biggest changes Pathak says he has noticed has nothing to do with numbers. "There has been a complete change in the confidence level of people in India," he says....There's a swagger in the step of India's business, and the country's government is showing signs it has caught the contagion.
