NRI Demat Account

 

A demat account in India is an online account to hold securities like Stocks, Mutual Funds, IPO, NCD, etc. in electronic form. Demat account is like a bank account but instead of money, it holds securities.

A demat account must be linked with an NRI Bank Account. All the proceeds from selling in securities, bonuses and dividends are automatically credited to this linked NRI bank account.

There are 2 types of bank accounts for NRI; NRE (Non-Resident External) and NRO (Non-Resident Ordinary). An NRO Bank Account is opened to manage money earned in India by an NRI. The funds in the account are repatriable (i.e. can be transferred abroad) but with certain rules, regulations and limits.

The NRI Non-Repatriable Demat Account must be linked with an NRO Bank Account. This account is also called NRO Demat Account.

As per RBI regulations, an NRI has to open 2 separate demat accounts for repatriable and non-repatriable investments.

An NRO Demat account is also called a non-repatriable Demat account. This is because not all the funds can be transferred abroad. The principal amount of your investments can be repatriated after paying taxes. The RBI rules allow up to $1 million of funds transfer to abroad in a financial year. All the interest earned on the account is repatriable after TDS is deducted.
