RBI launches the 14th round of Survey on Foreign Collaborations in Indian Industry

The Reserve Bank of India has been conducting the survey on Foreign Collaborations in Indian Industry since 1965. The 14th round of survey with 2021-22 and 2022-23 as the reference period has now been launched.

The survey collects information on the operations of the Indian companies having foreign technical collaborations in terms of performance indicators (e.g., production, exports, imports, cost of material) along with the crucial features of technology transfer agreements (viz., nature, duration, mode of payment, export restriction, provision of exclusive rights, use of technology after expiry of the agreements).

The schedule of this survey is required to be filled by the Indian companies having technical collaborations with foreign companies. The soft form of the survey schedule (both in Hindi and English - one of which can be used) is available on the RBI website under the head ‘Regulatory Reporting’-List of Returns’- ‘FCS – Survey Schedule’ [or under the head ‘Forms’ (available under the ‘More Links’ at the bottom of the home page) and sub-head ‘Survey’], which can be duly filled-in and submitted via email by July 15, 2023.
