Gupta said: "If you look at how the market is shaping up and how Middle East investors are looking to India, I think there is already quite a bit of investments which are coming into India and this is just not coming directly into startups, these investors have started looking at investing through venture capital funds and other avenues."
He further added: "Indian markets have really scaled up substantially specially with respect to the startup eco-system. We are talking about almost about 35000 startups in India."
"If you look at the broader pool of capital which is coming to India, I think roughly about $40 billion of capital that we are talking about is coming to India."
"So if you add up all the capital coming from direct and indirect sources, I think it would be at least about 30 percent of the total capital which is coming into India which is originating in Middle East."
