NRI Services

Who is a Non-Resident Indian (NRI)?

A non-resident Indian (NRI) is an Indian citizen or a person of Indian origin who stays abroad for employment, business or vocation outside India, or stays abroad under circumstances indicating an uncertain duration.

Who is a Person of Indian Origin (PIO)?

A Person of Indian Origin means a citizen of any country (other than Bangladesh or Pakistan), if the person: (a) at any time held an Indian passport; or (b) or the persons parents or grandparents were citizens of India; or (c) is a spouse of an Indian citizen, or of a person referred to in (a) or (b) above.

Who is a Foreign Institutional Investor (FII)?

An FII is an institution established or incorporated outside India which proposes to invest in Indian securities and is registered with SEBI.

Who is an Overseas Corporate Body (OCB) ?

An OCB includes overseas companies, partnership firms, societies and other corporate bodies owned predominantly by non-resident persons of Indian nationality or origin outside India.

Can an NRI maintain a bank account in India?

Yes. NRIs can maintain accounts in rupees as well as in foreign currency.

What types of rupee accounts may NRIs maintain?

There are 4 types:

 1. Non-resident (External) Rupee Accounts (NRE)

 2. Non-Resident (Special) Rupee (NRSR) Account

 3. Ordinary Non-resident Rupee Accounts (NRO)

4. Non-resident (Non-repatriable) Rupee deposit accounts (NRNR)

What are NRE, NRO and FCNR accounts?

Non-Resident (External) Rupee (NRE). This is a Rupee account from which funds are freely repatriable. It can be opened with either funds remitted from abroad or local funds which can be remitted abroad.

Non-Resident Ordinary Rupee (NRO). This is a Rupee account and can be opened with funds either remitted from abroad or generated in India. These funds are non-repatriable. However, under certain circumstances, these are allowed to be repatriated.

Fully Convertible Non-Resident Rupee (FCNR). This account is similar to the NRE account except that the funds are held in foreign currencies and can be maintained in Pound Sterling,U.S. Dollar, Euro and Japanese Yen. FCNR accounts can be maintained only in the form of term deposits, i.e. a deposit kept for fixed periods ranging from 6 months to 3 years.

How do NRE, NRO and NRSR accounts differ?

Balances held in NRE accounts can be repatriated abroad freely, whereas funds in NRSR and NRO account cannot be normally remitted abroad but have to be used only for local payments in rupees. Consequently, funds remitted from abroad or local funds which can otherwise be remitted abroad to the accountholder can only be credited to NRE accounts.

When will my NRI purchase take effect?

If an application is received before the 3 p.m., Indian Standard Time on any business day, the allocation of units will be based on the NAV of that business day. All applications received after the prescribed time will be treated as having been received on the next business day and the units allotted accordingly.

How does an NRI redeem funds?

In the open-end schemes of mutual fund units can be purchased or redeemed at any point in time. To redeem funds, submit the redemption request to the nearest Investor Service Centre. Your form must contain the investors folio number and the amount / units you would like to redeem. Redemption requests by telephone, telegram, fax or email that lack valid signatures will not be accepted.

How will the redemption proceeds be paid?

Redemption proceeds will be paid by cheque. The cheque will be payable to the first unitholder and will include the bank account number. Redemption proceeds/repurchase price and/or dividend or income earned (if any) will be payable in Indian Rupees only.

What about redemption proceeds where investments were made on a non-repatriable basis?

Where the purchase of units is made on a non-repatriable basis, the maturity proceeds/repurchase price of units (after payment of taxes) will not qualify for repatriation and may be credited to the NRO/NRSR account of the non-resident investor.

Where the investment is made out of funds held in a NRSR account, the maturity proceeds/ repurchase price of units (after payment of taxes) may be credited to the NRSR account maintained by the investor with an authorised dealer in India.

Similarly, investments in units purchased in Rupees, where the investor was a resident of India and subsequently becomes a non-resident, will not qualify for repatriation of repurchase proceeds of units.

The entire income distribution on the investment will, however, qualify for full repatriation. Investors are advised to contact their banks/tax consultants if they desire remittance of the income distribution on units abroad.

Is the income/dividend on mutual fund units repatriable?

The investments shall carry the right of repatriation of capital invested and capital appreciation so long as the investor continues to be a resident outside India. In the case of an FII, the designated branch of the authorised dealer may allow remittance of net sale/maturity proceeds (after payment of taxes) or credit the amount to the Foreign Currency account or Non-resident Rupee account of the FII maintained in accordance with the approval granted to it by the RBI. In any other case, where the investment is made out of inward remittance or from funds held in NRE/FCNR account of the investor, the maturity proceeds/repurchase price of units (after payment of taxes) may be credited to NRE/FCNR/NRO/NRSR account of the non-resident investor maintained with an authorised dealer in India.

What is the tax liability on redemptions?

Under Section 2(42A) of the Income Tax Act, units of the fund held as a capital asset for a period of more than 12 months immediately preceding the date of transfer, will be treated as a long-term capital asset for the computation of capital gains, thus qualifying for the long-term capital gains tax rate. In all other cases, it would be treated as a short-term capital asset and would be taxed at the short-term capital gains tax rate.


What is the tax liability for income received from your mutual funds?

As per Section 10(35) of the Income Tax Act, 1961, income received from mutual fund units specified under Section 10(23D) is exempt from income tax in India and the mutual funds are subject to pay distribution tax in debt oriented schemes. Hence all dividends are tax-free in the hands of non-resident investors and no TDS is applicable on the same.


Is it mandatory to have a Permanent Account Number (PAN)?

It is not mandatory to have a PAN for an NRI even if the investment amount is greater than Rs. 50,000. PAN would however, be required if the NRI is required to file a return in India or claim a refund of any taxes paid.


How does one apply for a PAN?

An application is required to be made in Form 49A (Download)

What is the proof of the Tax Deduction at Source?

A TDS certificate is issued in the name of the investor mentioning the details of the transaction and the tax deducted. The TDS certificate is commonly known as Form16 A.

When will the TDS certificate be issued?

A TDS certificate (Form 16A) will be despatched to the investor at his or her registered address along with the redemption warrant.

Can an NRI have a joint account in a mutual fund with a resident Indian?

Yes. An NRI investor can jointly own a fund account with a resident Indian or a Non-resident Indian.

Is the indexation benefit available to NRIs?

Yes, if units are held for more than 12 months i.e. on long-term capital gains.

Are fund units liable to the wealth tax?

No. Units issued to overseas investors will not be treated as assets as defined under section 2(ea) of the Wealth-Tax Act, 1957 and hence will not be liable to wealth tax.

Can dividend received from a mutual fund in an NRO account be repatriated?

Yes. Income generated from investments (dividend, in this case) done on a non-repatriable basis qualify for full repatriation.

Can an NRI fax a request followed by the original documents?

No. Units cannot be redeemed or allotted on the basis of fax applications. A request that lacks a valid signature cannot be processed due to legal restrictions.

Can a Power of Attorney (POA) invest on behalf of the NRI investor?

Yes. unlike banks where a POA holder cannot open an account on behalf of the NRI, in a mutual fund the POA has the authority to invest on behalf of the investor and sign documents for initial and additional purchases as well as redemptions.

While applying for purchase of units the POA holder needs to submit the original POA or a copy duly notarised should be submitted. The Power of attorney should contain the signature of both the first holder and the POA holder. Only when the POA is registered does the POA holder have the right to transact on behalf of the NRI investor. His signature will be verified for processing any transaction/request.

Is nomination by NRIs allowed in Mutual Funds?

Yes. It is allowed only for Individuals/HUFs.


Can a resident Indian have an NRI as nominee?

Yes. The same rules apply for nominees to resident Indian accounts. An NRI can be a nominee to an account which is in the name of a resident Indian.


Investments by U.S Person

There are certain mutual funds which do not permit investments in their schemes as these are entities who are also governed by the laws in US (for eg Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund) and the Schemes have not been registered in the United States of America under the Securities Act of 1933 which is a mandatory requirement for these fund houses. Applicants for Units may be required to declare that they are not a U.S. Person and are not applying for Units on behalf of any U.S. Person.


The term "U.S. Person" shall mean any person that is a United States Person within the meaning of Regulations under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as the definition of such term may be changed from time to time by legislation, rules, regulations or judicial or administrative agency interpretations.

Funds presently not eligible for investments by US residents are:

Fidelity Mutual Fund

Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund

HSBC Mutual Fund

PNB Principal Mutual Fund


Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

Who is eligible for OCI?

Persons of Indian Origin, who migrated from India after 26 January, 1950, and

1. who were citizens of India on or at anytime after 26.01.1950 or

2. who were eligible to become Indian citizens on 26th January, 1950 or

3. belonged to a territory that became part of India after 15th August, 1947 and

4. their children and grand children,

whose present nationality is such that the country of nationality allows dual citizenship in some form or the other under the local laws, will be eligible to be registered as OCI. Minor children of such persons are also eligible for registration as OCI. However, minor children, whose both parents are Indian citizens, are not eligible for OCI.

OCI is a passage to become Indian Citizen

The grant of OCI is extended to citizens of all countries (which allow dual nationality) other than those who had ever been citizens of Pakistan and Bangladesh. The amended legislation further reduces the period of stay of two years to one year in India for OCI, who is registered for five years, to become eligible for grant of Indian citizenship.

Article 9 of the Constitution of India clearly states that a person shall cease to be a citizen of India, if he voluntary acquires the citizenship of any foreign State. Therefore, one cannot have citizenship of any other country, if he is an Indian citizen. The expression dual citizenship is, therefore, a misnomer. However, the technical term used for the scheme in the Citizenship Act, 1955 (as amended vide Amendment Act, 2005) is Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI).

Persons registered as OCI are not Indian citizens. This is a new category of citizenship created under the statute with certain restricted rights as compared to Indian citizens.

OCIs holder can not hold the following positions:

1. Public employment,

2. election to Constitutional offices like President/Vice President/Judges of the Supreme Court or High Courts

3. Members of Parliament or Legislative Assembly/Council or

4. right to vote under Representation of People Act, 1950.

A person registered as OCI is entitled to the following benefits:

1. Grant of multiple entry, multi-purpose lifelong visa to visit India;

2. Exemption from registration with FRRO/FRO for any length of stay in India; and

3. Parity with NRIs in economic, financial and educational fields except in matters relating to acquisition of agricultural/plantation properties.
