Bank Account Requirements

An NRI can invest in Indian Mutual Funds either through a NRE or an NRO Account.

What is an NRE Account?

The NRE account is an Indian Rupee denominated account, which is freely repatriable. This form of NRI account can be in the form of savings, current, recurring or fixed deposits. The income is deemed to be earned outside India. Indian Rupees cannot be deposited into this account, only foreign currency can be deposited which will be converted into Indian Rupee at the time of deposit. The interest earned on the balances at the end of quarter is free from any income tax.

What is an NRO Account?

An NRO account is a savings or current account held in India that helps NRIs manage income earned in India such as rent, dividends, or pension from abroad. The account holder can deposit and manage accumulated rupee funds conveniently through an NRO account. Foreign currency deposited into the NRO account is converted into Indian Rupees. A minimum amount of Rs.10,000 must be maintained in an NRO account on a daily basis. Interest earned in an NRO account is taxable in India.
