Nri Investment issues?

I have been getting lots of mails from Nris all over the world – Australia, Bahrain, US, UK,…

not sure if there is a pattern..many of them want to invest in India and are wondering how?

If i were to address issues relating to Nri investors…what are the areas that YOU would want me to cover. Ask as simple to as complicated as a question (in a worst case scenarion, I will say I do not know :)).

So here is welcoming…queries regarding investments, taxation, borrowing, buying or selling a house, their parents’ financial safety, ….sounds cliched but planning to create a NRI special.

this idea came when a company asked me to make a trip to Dubai to SELL some life insurance and real estate projects….did not want to go…

  1. Please talk about PFIC issue (for US investors) and FIRC issue (for all NRIs).

    Good day sir,

    Thank you for opening up a forum for NRI’s & their queries. I have a few queries of my own & would highly appreciate if you could answer them.

    Q.1 With regards to to NRI investments in India. what are the likely consequences of the DTC on investments & earnings ?

    Q.2 I am working overseas for a few years now & plan to retire in India. Since we are not allowed to invest in guaranteed debt instruments like PPF , what would you suggest for Pension planning?

    Thank you once again.

    Thanks for such an informative blog.I learned a lot from your writings
    I am an NRI investing in stocks and mutual funds through ICICI DIRECT. It is a joint account. I was surprised to know that though trading account is in joint name and with proper nomination but all the mutual fund holdings which are substantial are only in single name. For the last three months I have been trying to register the nomination for MF holdings (as I was bluntly told these can not be in joint name) but every time it is being sent back with some new requirements. Please let all NRI account holders know that they should not assume that their MF holdings are in joint name or with nomination even though trading account is in joint name.
    Thanks and regards,
    Ashok Jain
    I will seek your guidance.

  4. Thankyou for such a wonderful blog and regular posting!

    I am an NRI from last almost 9 years. After reading to your blog started investing in Equity Mutual Funds and recently came to know that my status was RI, trying to convert to NRI facing a lot of problems.

    Kindly advice me and all reader about KYC, FATCA, Tax implication and all about NRI investment.
