Plz have a look of the posting of Shikha Chhabra which is authentic, and I have seen it elsewhere as well. The growth rate, except for the years 2014-15 and 2016-2017, the growth rate has been insignificant and in 2018-19 (April-December), the growth rate is in minus.

While I say "hardy any FDI in last Five years", does not mean zero growth. What it meant is insignificant. Mind it, the figures of 2014-15 and 2015-16 have had the effect of previous policies FDI receipts. more  
GC Mathur , if their has been no FDI since 2014 then India becoming 2.5 trillion economy( in 5 years) from 1.8 trillion economy ( from 1947 -2014) is incredible . Also give me more figures about FDI during 1947 -2014 i have more brick bats -----oops ...... flowers for the SICK minds more  
Check the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (https://dipp.gov.in) webpage for the FDI numbers.

FDI in India grew from 4B$ to almost 30B$ from 2005 to 2011. It went down after that to about 12B$ in 2015. It has been growing after 2015 with a huge jump to about 39B$ in 2018 primarily due to the Walmart investment. 2018 FDI inflow is larger than what China got in the same year but then this can be a one off event.

On the positive side, the interest to invest in India being shown by some big international businesses / funds can shoot up this number in a big way in the next 2-3 years. This is likely due to the huge potential seen in India and comparatively a more friendly investment climate as compared to other destinations ... time will tell ... more  
You are presenting the lie of the PM Narender Modi about foreign direct investment. In fact, there has been hardly any FDI in the last 5 years. more
