    Hello Kirti

    I think in case of NRE, joint holding with a resident who is a close relative is allowed. Also, NRE account can also be opened by PIO – only restriction is on the Bangladesh and Pakistan nationalities where RBI approval is required. Please check.

    I am NRI with NRE, FCNR and NRO accounts in India. I am showing the interest earned in NRO account including the tax deducted by the bank in my Income teax return. No issues

    What about the interest received from NRE accounts? Should I need to mention these accounts in income tax return form. If so, since it is exempt from tax where in ITR form it should be disclosed?

    Similarly I have NRE and FCNR deposits that matured during that financial year. Should I need to show these interest earned on maturity? If so, since it is exempt from tax where in ITR form it should be disclosed?

    There has been existence of NRI banking in the last decade. It provides large exchange foreign currency compare to the Indian INR currency. It leaves Indian economy with huge amounts of returns which help in the welfare development

    how mutch I have pay tax on interest earned of Rs. 87000/- on nro a/c and I don,t have any other income?

      Hello Naveen
      Tax at a rate of 30.90% will be deducted at source on interest earned in the NRO accounts irrespective of the amount of interest which is approximately 26,883 Rs
      Check it in Form 26AS.
      As your total income in India is less than basic exemption limit of 2 lakh you don’t need to pay any tax.
      You can claim TDS cut by filing for refund.

    Hi Team,

    I have a question around NRE/NRO accounts. Recently, I moved out of India for a job outside of India. Now, I send money home into my normal savings account through remittance.
    I want to know, do I still need to open a NRE/NRO account? or is it fine to use my existing savings account for money transfers?

    Does it involve additional tax compliance?

    I have another question, since, I ll not be in India for a long time. Do I still need to pay tax(file ITR), as my I dont have any other income than interests that I get from savings account?
