    The government has cleared 23 (FDI) proposals, which will bring Rs 564.80 crore into India, including Dubai-based Damas’ plan for retail trading in jewellery and Danone’s plans to re-enter food products space after quitting earlier this year.

    A proposal by Damas LLC to set up a joint venture with Lifestyles for retail trading of jewelleries will bring in FDI of Rs180 crore, while Danone’s plans for food products business do not have any definite FDI content as company for this purpose is yet to be incorporated.

    The proposals by G4s Corporate Services Ltd and Morgan Stanley were rejected by the government, an official release said.
