Abstract

This study examines the association between India's foreign direct investments, exports, imports, and Inflation onEconomic Growth in India. The autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL), bounds testing technique to co-integration over the long run, is used to investigate these connections. The error correction model (ECM) is also utilized to investigate the short-run dynamics. The findings support a long-term connection between FDI, exports,imports and Inflation onEconomic Growth. Furthermore, FDI inflows, exports and Inflation in India proved to have a positive and insignificant on Economic Growth. However, imports looked to have a negative and insignificant impact. Finally, the research recommends that a more favorable government policy toward FDI might make the Indian economy more dynamic.

Keywords: Foreign direct investment, inflation, ARDL, ECM
