Equity Vs Other Asset Classes in Long Run

The Differences between NRE and NRO accounts:


NRE accounts are freely repatriable (principal and interest generated), but NRO accounts are limited, with maximum repatriation of USD 1 million nett of relevant taxes every financial year after providing an undertaking and a certificate from a chartered accountant.

Tax Treatment

In India, NRE accounts are tax-free (no income tax, wealth tax, or gift tax). Interest generated in NRO accounts and credit balances, on the other hand, is subject to the appropriate income tax bracket as well as the applicable Wealth planning and gift tax.

Deposit of Rupee funds generated in India

If an NRI/PIO/OCI earns money from India (such as pay, rent, dividends, and so on), he or she can only deposit it in an NRO account. Such profits cannot be deposited in an NRE account.

Joint Holding

A resident Indian cannot jointly have an NRE account with another NRI. NRO accounts, on the other hand, can be held by both NRIs and resident Indians (close relatives) as specified by Section 6 of the Companies Act 1956

Choose NRE accounts if you...

(Primary reason) desire to park your remitted abroad earnings in Indian Rupees; want to keep your Rupee savings liquid; want to open a joint account with another NRI; want your Rupee savings to be freely repatriable. Visit our website as a learning centre.

Choose NRO account if you...

(Primary purpose) desire to park India-based profits in Rupees in India; want an account to deposit revenue generated in India, such as rent, dividends, and so on; want to create an account with a resident Indian (close relative)

NRE bank accounts are those that hold money that may be re-exported. Money in such accounts can be changed back to a foreign currency in this way. NRO bank accounts, on the other hand, are accounts that hold money that cannot be repatriated. NRO funds will remain in Indian rupees and will not be easily convertible.

If an investor has the option, we recommend investing in mutual funds through an NRO account. This is because the paperwork criteria for establishing an NRO linked mutual fund account are less stringent than those for an NRE account. Because money in NRE accounts is repatriable, mutual fund providers frequently request bank statement verification for each transaction to demonstrate that the funds came from an NRE account (FIRC rules). There are no such prerequisites for an NRO account. Get Portfolios Insight from us.

A note about mariners

If an NRI/PIO/OCI earns money from India (such as pay, rent, dividends, and so on), he or she can only deposit it in an NRO account. Such profits cannot be deposited in an NRE account.

NRI Investments

Non-resident Indians can invest in mutual funds through Complete Circle Capital Pvt. Ltd. An NRI can use their net-banking account to create an account and invest in mutual funds. However, there are several limitations and additional/specific criteria for an NRI to invest in mutual funds in India.

Opening an NRI Account with

An NRI account is fairly similar to a conventional investor account regarding how it is opened. The investor would need to fill out the application form online, create it, and submit it with the requisite documentation documents. We recommend that our potential NRI clients initially provide us scanned photographs of their papers for verification. We may review the documents and tell you whether they are acceptable for account opening or require revisions. When it comes to shipping papers through international couriers, this might save time and money.Do your Equity Research with us.

Can NRIs repatriate their earnings from mutual funds?

  • Suppose the investment is made on a repatriation basis. In that case, the redemption funds and the nett income or capital gains (after tax) emanating from the transaction are eligible for repatriation.
  • If you invest on a non-repatriation basis, you can only repatriate the investment's nett income (the dividend after taxes).


Due to regulatory constraints, most AMCs do not accept investments from investors in the United States and Canada. Such investors can invest in all of L&T Investment Management Limited's and Sundaram Mutual Fund's mutual fund schemes.

Documents Required

To invest and be KYC compliant, an NRI must have the following.

  • An Indian passport or an OCI/PIO card
  • A PAN card
  • An overseas address with proof there-of
  • An NRE/NRO account in India

As a frequent investor, the investor must complete a one-time KYC registration using their foreign address evidence.

Maintaining a Rupee account in India is a common problem for Non-Resident Indians. There are two primary motivations for creating such an account: NRIs wish to repatriate money earned abroad to India, and/or NRIs want to maintain profits generated in India. A Non-Resident Rupee (NRE) account and/or a Non-Resident Ordinary Rupee (NRO) account are available to NRIs. A Person of Indian Origin (PIO) and an Overseas Citizen of India can create an NRO account (OCI).

NRE and NRO accounts are similar in that they can both be created as savings or current accounts, and they are both in Indian rupees. In both NRE and NRO accounts, an average monthly balance of Rs 75000 is required. Visit our website as the best learning centre for you.
