Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pick the right kind of fixed deposit for me?

The right type of NRI fixed deposit depends on your needs. For instance, if you wish to repatriate funds back to the UK, you should consider an NRE Account. If repatriation is not your goal, an NRO FD, which offers higher interest rates, might be the better option. Lastly, if you wish to earn interest income in foreign currencies, you should choose the FCNR NRI Fixed Deposit.

Is interest on all kinds of NRI Fixed Deposits exempt from taxes?

Interest on all kinds of NRI FDs is not tax exempted. While you can benefit from tax exemptions on the interest income from NRE and FCNR deposits, you have to pay taxes on the interest income from NRO Fixed Deposits, as per your appliable tax slab, and depending upon the interest income earned from the FD. Remember to research the tax implications based on the interest income you earn in a financial year.

Are the principal and interest amounts earned on NRI Fixed Deposits repatriable to my country of residence?

You may freely and wholly repatriate the funds – the principal and interest income earned on your NRE and FCNR FDs. As for NRO FDs, you may only repatriate the interest income and not the principal amount back to your country of residence.
