NRI Mutual Funds Questions & Answers

Frequently asked questions

Can NRI invest in mutual funds?

NRI can invest in mutual funds in India as long as they adhere to the Foreign Exchange Act. However, mutual fund asset management companies in India accept only local currency, based on the fact that the NRI has to open an NRO or NRE account with an Indian bank.  The investment can start once the account is activated whether as a direct investment or indirect through a power of attorney

What happens to mutual funds when you become NRI?

Any mutual fund held by an investor remains unchanged after the change in the residential status of the investor. Once an investor becomes an NRI for India, he/ she must ensure to:

  1. Change the residential status to NRI and update the KYC details
  2. Pay taxes as per the rules applicable to an NRI taxpayer

Lastly, many AMCs do not allow an NRI to purchase/ switch mutual funds. Hence it is important to update the KYC compliance.

How can I withdraw money from Sundaram Mutual Fund?

In order to redeem Sundaram Mutual funds and withdraw money, you need to fill the redemption form and submit it. The easier option for NRI is to apply online through the Website and money will be transferred to the bank account linked to your registration.

Can US-based NRI invest in mutual funds in India?

Generally, an NRI is allowed to invest in mutual funds like Indian residents. However, for the USA and Canadian residents, there are few restrictions. There are only a few fund houses that accept investments from NRIs based in the US and Canada

Do NRI pay tax on mutual funds?

Taxation for NRIs investing in Indian Mutual Funds is the same as taxation of resident Indians. The only difference is that for NRIs, there is a TDS of 15% for short term (< 1 year) and 10% for long term (> 1 year) in the case of Equities and a TDS of 30% for short term (< 3 years) and 20% post indexation benefit for long term (> 3 years) in case of Debt/Gold funds at the time of redemptions.

Where can I invest my NRI money?

There are several investment options for NRI in India like the ones for Indian residents, some of those options are:

Can NRI hold a normal savings account?
