  • 1.WHAT IS NRI BANKING? To meet the specific needs of non-resident Indians related to their remittances, savings, earnings, investments and repatriation, the Government of India introduced in 1970 Non-Resident (External) Account Rules which are governed by the Exchange Control Regulations. The Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 determines the laws regulating foreign exchange and enlists the various deposit schemes available to NonResident Indians.

2. MEANING NRI accounts are maintained by banks which hold authorised dealers' licences from the Reserve Bank of India. All NRIs can open such accounts, with the exception of individuals residing in Pakistan and Bangladesh, who require special permission from the RBI. Joint accounts of two or more non-residents and nomination facility are permitted. The total NRE/ FCNR deposits during 2006-2007, as per RBI statistics, are USD 37,751 million and are expected to grow with regional rural banks also mopping up funds. Banks are expected to offer lucrative interest rates to bolster NRI funds. FIRST LET US SEEE WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY NON RESIDENT INDIAN(NRI) UNDER I.T ACT AnD FERA ACT 3.
