NRI Home Loan Documents Required

At a Glance

An NRI home loan allows Non-Resident Indians to purchase a dream home for their loved ones in India with financial support at affordable interest rates. Accessing this financial support makes sense for those who want to remain in control of liquid funds at their disposal, even as they enjoy the benefits of purchasing and owning a property in India. However, to access this funding, financial institutions such as DBS Bank need to be certain of the customer's ability to repay the loan and hence, certain documents are requested at the time of home loan application.
