Needs of the study The FIIs (Financial Institutional Investors) is monies, which chases the stock in the market place. It is not exactly brick and mortar money, but in the long run it may translate into brick and mortar. Sudden influx of FIIs, drives the stock market up as too much money chases too little stock. In the last four months of an influx of about $ 1.5 billion has driven the Indian stock market 20% higher. If the stock market arises in the form of FIIs, it is still good but it has to be controlled. Internal resources and the withdrawal from foreign reserves, trade loans, long term financing from World Bank etc, will add additional luster to the investment plan. Scope of the study
The research covers the stock index (sensex) and its comparison with foreign institutional investments. The study covers the rise and fall of the sensex due to the change in inflow of FIIs over the past 10 years (2001 2011). The study will provide a very clear picture of the impact of foreign institutional investors on Indian stock index. It will also describe the market trends due to FIIs inflow.

The study would be helpful for further descriptive studies on the ideas that will be explored. Moreover, it would be beneficial to gain knowledge regarding foreign institutional investments, their process of registration and their impact on Indian stock market.

Objectives of the study 1. To study the Impact of FIIs in the Indian stock market 2. To study how Government policies effects the trend of inflows of FIIs in India.

Review of literature
1. Andy Lin Chih-Yuan Chen1 (2006) has explored the relationship between qualified foreign institutional investors (QFIIs) and Taiwans stock market and evaluates the effect of QFIIs investment transactions on Taiwans stock market. By taking the date of easing regulatory restrictions on foreigners stock investment holdings as a cut off point, the research uses the highest and lowest 10 stocks of QFII holdings in three industry sectors as sample portfolios to study the prior- and post-event returns.

2. Ilangovan Prof. D. et al2 (1997) held that Steps are taken to gain extra mileage as regards the level of foreign investment receipts is concerned. Foreign direct investment is proven to have well-known positive effect through technology spill overs and stable investments tied to plant and equipment, but portfolio capital is associated more closely with volatility and its capacity to be triggered by both domestic as well as exogenous factors, making it extremely difficult to manage and control.

3. Richard W.Sias (1996)3 has found that a trader-intensified transactions database is employed to investigate: (1) the relation between order-flow imbalance closed-end funds share prices and discounts (2) the role of institutional investors in closed-end funds. Empirical results are consistent with the hypothesis that buyers (sellers) of closed-end funds face upward (downward) sloping supply (demand) curves. The results also demonstrate that ownership statistics fail to accurately reflect institutional investors importance in closed-end funds market. The results failed to provide the evidence that institutional investors offset the position of individual investors or that institutional investors face systematic noise trader risk.

4. Chakrabarti (2001)4 has examined in his research that following the Asian crisis and the bust of info-tech bubble internationally in 1998-99 the net FII has declined by US$ 61 million. But there was not much effect on the equity returns. This negative investment would possibly disturb the long-term relationship between FII and the other variables like equity returns, inflation, etc. has marked a regime shift in the determinants of FII after Asian crisis. The study found that in the pre-Asian crisis period any change in FII found to have a positive impact on the equity returns. But in the post-Asian crisis period it was found the reverse relation that change in FII is mainly due to change in equity returns. Hence, any empirical exercise on FII has to take care of this fact.

5. Rai Kulwant et al (2003)5 held of that the present study tries to examine the determinants of Foreign Institutional Investments in India, which have crossed almost US$ 12 billions by the end of 2002. Given the huge volume of these flows and its impact on the other domestic financial markets understanding the behaviour of these flows becomes very important at the time of liberalizing capital account. In this study, by using monthly data, we found that FII inflow depends on stock market returns, inflation rate (both domestic and foreign) and exante risk. In terms of magnitude, the impact of stock market returns and the ex-ante risk turned out to be major determinants of FII inflow. This study did not find any causation running from FII inflow to stock returns as it was found by some studies. Stabilizing the stock market volatility and minimizing the ex-ante risk would help in attracting more FII inflow that has positive impact on the real economy.

6. Bose Suchismita et al (2005)6 has examined the impact of reforms of the foreign institutional investors' (FIIs) investment policy, on FII portfolio flows to the Indian stock markets, an aspect, studies on determinants of FII flows to India so far have not taken into consideration. FIIs have been allowed to invest in the domestic financial market since 1992; the decision to open up the Indian financial market to FII portfolio flows was influenced by several factors such as the disarray in India's external finances in 1991 and a disorder in the country's capital market. Aimed primarily at ensuring non-debt creating capital inflows at a time of an extreme balance of payment crisis and at developing and disciplining the nascent capital market, foreign investment funds were welcomed to the country. Analysis also helps to evaluate the impact of liberalization policies as well as measures for strengthening of policy framework for FII flows, in the post-Asian crisis period

This paper provides a brief overview of certain considerations applicable to foreign

Investments in India. It states that foreign investment regulations in India are the subject of frequent change. While reform efforts stalled somewhat during the weak coalition governments of the mid-1990s, the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government launched a second round of economic reforms, which included major privatization, deregulation and tariff reduction initiatives. Annual foreign direct investment in India rose from approximately $100 million in 1990 to an estimated $5.5 billion in 2003, and while some barriers continue to restrict foreign investment in India, momentum toward liberalization of the Indian economy seems to be irreversible.

8. FIIs: Bane or boon? Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) investment in India: a trend analysis of monthly flows Journal of stock market volatility Publisher: MCB UP Ltd. In this paper researchers have made an attempt to analyze the trend of FIIs investment in India. The information regarding monthly and yearly investment by Foreign Institution Investors (FII's) in India have been collected from the RBIs annual manual. The period covered under the study is from January 2004 to August 2010.The findings of the study indicate that in 2009 FIIs have invested Rs. 912,033 million. While they have withdrawn Rs. 604,266 million in 2008 this is due to the effect of global meltdown and recession in world economy. During the study we found that Market size, Political scenario, Labour cost and productivity, Liberalized Trade Policy, Infrastructure, Incentives and Operating conditions and Disinvestment policy were the causes of FIIs investment in India.

9. Foreign Institutional Investors impact on stock prices in India Journal: academic research in economics This study shows the impact of market opening to FIIs, on Indian stock market behaviour. On 14th September 1992 India announced its policy regarding the opening of stock market to FIIs for investment in equity and related instruments. Using stock market data related to Bombay Stock Exchange, for both before and after the FIIs policy announcement day. Observation were made to assess the impact of the market opening on the returns and volatility of stock return. They found that while there were no significant changes in the Indian stock market average returns, volatility was significantly reduced after India unlocked its stock market to foreign investors.
