Frequently Asked Questions

If I start an NRE FD account with a monetary gift, is the interest taxable?

NRE FD rates at DBS Treasures are designed to provide you with the maximum earning potential while the interest remains tax-free in India. This is because the amount invested and interest earned is on a sum of money that does not qualify as income from India.

Are NRE FD interest rates subject to a penalty for early withdrawal?

Prematurely closed NRE FD accounts may face a penalty for early withdrawal as per the terms and conditions. However, the NRE FD interest rates as such do not change. They are adjusted for the actual time you stay invested.

Are NRE FD rates applicable for Indian residents as well?

Only NRIs can open NRE accounts. However, if an NRI becomes a resident of India (by staying in the country for over 182 consecutive days in a year), then the interest earned will be taxable. They must then also begin the transition process of converting the account to a residential savings account.
