New Delhi: Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) on Thursday said it has approved four FDI proposals entailing overseas investments of about Rs 93.81 crore including that of Dr Reddy's and Oxford University Press.

Based on the FIPB recommendations "in its 241st meeting held on October 27, 2016, the Central Government has approved four FDI proposals.

The proposals approved included Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd's foreign investment worth Rs 36
crore," a Finance Ministry statement said.

The Board also cleared proposals of M/s Quintillion Business Media Pvt. Ltd and M/s BMJ Group lndia Pvt Ltd.

Headed by Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das, FIPB also cleared Oxford University Press foreign investment proposal worth Rs 44.41 crore.
