NRE Saving Account FAQ - Non Resident External Account Frequently Asked Questions Answers

The NRE account stands for the Non-Resident External account and I strongly believe, every NRI who has any interest in India must open this account. It has some excellent features which are not available to other types of account e.g. interest earned on NRE account is tax-free in India and not only that, both principal and interest are fully repatriable to overseas. You don't need to ask for permission or worry about paperwork, if you need money in overseas, you can always transfer from your NRE bank account.

Migration to Australia, NewZeland, USA, UK, and Singapore More Difficult for Indian IT Professional Now

This month, particularly this week, starting from 18th April was pretty bleak for Indian IT professional looking for migration and an onsite opportunity to Australia, NewZeland, and the USA. Things were not easy from quite some time where many firms all over the world chopping and moving workforces from high-cost location to low-cost location and thus reducing the onsite opportunity for a large number of ambitious Indian IT guys working in service-based companies like Infosys, TCS, Wipro, and CTS. Things have started getting even worse due to a series of VISA reforms done by these nations to employ more stricter policies on immigrants has made the onsite dream of Indian IT professional even more difficult.

Can You transfer money from NRE to another NRE, NRO, FCNR and Resident Saving account? ICICI or HDFC?

One of the most common question among NRIs (Non-resident Indians), especially among IT professionals traveling to the USA, UK, Singapore onsite are whether they can transfer funds from one NRE account to another NRE account, or NRO account, or FCNR account, or a Resident saving account or not? Since many IT professionals have their resident saving account in India when they travel to Overseas and which they later converted to NRO account, this doubt is obvious. Well, since NRE account is maintained in Indian rupees, there is no restriction on transferring your money from one NRE account to another NRE, NRO, FCNR or resident saving account.
