India has always been highly concerned with the development of new energy sources. Its issuance of green bonds also hit a record high of 3 billion U.S. dollars this year, double that of last year. When weighing green bonds in China and India, investors tend to favor the latter's green bonds because of China's tighter controls on the use of green bonds.

In India, there is no clear regulatory requirement for the use of funds raised by green bonds. In China, NDRC allowed issuers to repay bank loans and replenish their working capital with up to 50% of their funds. Another difference is that some green bond projects in China, such as clean coal and some hydropower projects, are not in line with the global green bond standards.
