Dear Sir/Ma'am,

We are glad to present you our suggestions and comments on the Model Text of the Draft Indian BIT 2015. We commend the government for its right decision to revisit the 2003 BIT. However, we believe that the government has gone overboard with its desire to regulate and limiting the protections available to investors. BIT is not a tool of regulation and the government must refrain from using it as one. Please read the report attached for suggestions.
