    Balances held in NRE accounts can be repatriated abroad freely, whereas funds in NRSR and NRO account cannot be remitted abroad but have to be used only for local payments in rupees. Consequently, funds remitted from abroad or local funds which can otherwise be remitted abroad to the account holder can only be credited to NRE accounts. Funds due to the non-resident account holder which do not qualify, under the Exchange Control regulations, for remittance outside India are required to be credited to NRO accounts.

  • Who are QA 22 Account holders? Can they invest in Mutual Funds?

    These are NRI investors for which we normally have resident rupee accounts - QA22.

    After the introduction of FEMA, QA22 accounts are being treated at par with normal resident accounts, though RBI approval is still required for setting up the branch / liaison/ export office.
