Nisha Desai Biswal, US assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian Affairs, acknowledged problems in a speech in the Indian capital but urged both sides to overcome their differences.
"We're addressing these concerns head-on as good partners do," she said, adding: "The solution is to talk and trade."
The lack of transparency in Indian tax laws, red tape, and weak protection of intellectual property rights were discouraging investments in India, Biswal said as she listed a series of US concerns.
She also highlighted that India has ranked a dismal 134 out of 189 countries in world rankings for hospitable places to "invest and start a new business".
Annual trade between India and the US currently stands at $100 billion but the two sides have pledged to increase this figure five-fold over the next decade.
While highlighting India's strategic importance, Biswal said the US was eager for better relations between the South Asia giant and its neighbours to the west, Pakistan and Afghanistan, and central and southeastern Asia.
"In the coming years, the most important step India can take to promote greater connectivity is to normalise trade with Pakistan," she said.
