Over the past decade, Indian multinational corporations have made a huge impact in terms of their overseas operations in foreign countries, making India the second leading foreign investor behind China. Much of the focus however has remained on investing and operating in more traditional and established developed markets, like UK, Europe or USA. Not much attention has been paid towards understanding how Indian multinational corporations operate in newly emerging and developed markets, like Australia. This paper presents a detailed account of the literature on Indian IT firms and sheds light on their unique characteristics, and behaviour. It provides particular insights into their IT services, major multinationals, outward FDI policies and institutional constraints with regards to their operations in Australia. The paper highlights the significance of India’s IT investment in Australia and trade relations between the two countries.
