Legal Question in Investment Law in India

I am an Indian Business man with 1 sole proprietor firm and 2 Pvt. Ltd. firm (My stake is 90% & my wife stake is 10% in both of them). All entities are active here in India.

I want to buy a controlling stake in a newly started (6 months approx.) consultancy firm (LLC) in Bahrain. Investment required is INR 2.5 Million (INR 25 Lacs).

My questions are:

a. How can I repatriate this amount to Bahrain? What paperwork or clearances will be required and by whom??

b. Will I be treated as an NRI after that?

c. What will be the impact on my India business supposing all operations are maintaining status quo in terms of revenues and profits?

Please answer, in case any other info is required, feel free to ask me.
