The present study analyses the panel data of various determinants of FDI inflow to India. The research considered those variables, which had been identified by the previous studies on FDI. The quarter-on-quarter data from the year 2000 to the year 2010 were obtained pertaining to twelve potential determinants of inward FDI. Factor analysis and elasticity analysis were respectively employed to understand the communality of the variables and the magnitude of sensitivity of inward FDI to its various determinants. The study identifies that transnational attributes constitute the major factor of FDI inflow to India. It is also understood that inward FDI is directly and greatly elastic to market size of the host country.
