Hie FERA (Foreign Exchange Regulation Act) was passed in 1947 which was amended in 1973. The new FERA came into force from 1.1.1974. The objective was the conservation of India’s Foreign Exchange reserves, judicious use of foreign exchange, using mainly in these sector which require foreign technol­ogy. Transactions in foreign exchange were absolutely prohibited excepting in certain selected sectors. Every foreign company had to maintain Indian share of 26 percent. FERA was repealed in 1998 and Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) was enacted. No unauthorised person would be allowed to deal in foreign exchange. The authorised person could sell; draw foreign exchange from any authorised person on current Account transaction, subject to approval of R.B.I.
