Why choose NRE Savings Account

An NRE Savings Account offers a safe and easy way to earn tax-free interest on your savings from income earned overseas. Converted to the Indian rupee at preferential rates, it allows you to plan for a better future, while also providing access to a host of privileges and services designed for your comfort. The interest income and the principal invested via the NRE Savings Account are both tax-free. For NRIs settled overseas who may still have family in India, an NRE Savings Account with DBS Treasures also allows for a transfer of funds as and when needed.
