Yes, US-based NRIs are required to open a PIS-enabled NRI bank account, if they want to invest in shares on a repatriation basis. To trade on a repatriation basis, you would need an NRE Trading, Demat, and Bank Account with PIS approval from RBI linked to it.

The RBI PIS approval is not needed to trade on a non-repatriation basis.

The PIS approval is also not needed edit to invest in Mutual Fund and Derivatives (stock and currency).
