There is an extremely interesting speech on Insurance industry by Rajiv Dixit. This was around the time when foreign Insurance companies first opened shops in India. Those who have not heard his name are requested to google it up.

Those who have heard Dixit will find that his talks always have a bias in favour of Indian culture and distrust/disgust in western culture.

Discounting his bias, most important query raised in his talks centres on whether or not profits earned in India by a foreign firm will be invested in India or will it be repatriated?

I did a rapid read through of prospectus of ICICI IPO but this issue is not being addressed at all.
