Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee smiles during a news conference in New Delhi.
The government is in talks to further liberalise its foreign direct investment (FDI) rules, the Finance Minister said on Friday, as Asia's third-largest economy looks overseas to fund key sectors and overhaul its infrastructure.

Last month the government warned of a further slowdown that would strain India's balance of payments if reforms were not undertaken to remove regulatory barriers deterring inflows.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday said he accepted responsibility after the Supreme Court quashed his naming of a tainted civil servant as the country's chief anti-graft official.
Singh's statement in a televised press conference was another huge personal setback for the 78-year-old leader but it was unclear whether it would fulfil calls of an increasingly assertive opposition demanding he explain himself to Parliament.
The controversy comes as Singh is trying to defend himself against a series of graft scandals, including a $39 billion telecoms licensing scam, that have called into question his ability to govern effectively Asia's third-largest economy.
