Looking Beyond the Dabhol Debacle: Examining its Causes and Understanding its Lessons

PDF · Preeti Kundra · Jul-23-2012 · 41 VAND. J. TRANSNAT'L L. 907 (2008)

This Note analyzes foreign direct investment in India, looking into the investment troubles surrounding the Dabhol power project, India’s largest foreign investment project to date.  After providing an introduction to the mechanics of project finance and a backdrop to the Dabhol power project, the Note considers whether the Indian government’s actions, specifically the use of the Indian legal system, constituted “total expropriation” and violations of international law.  Additionally, this Note considers what systemic changes India can make in order to create a more investment-friendly environment in the post-Dabhol context.
