As the government continues to push through reforms (in the Land Acquisition Act, the Real Estate Regulatory bill, relaxation of FDI rules, etc.), property continues to remain the best option for NRIs looking to invest in India. But before making the final decision, there are some big questions to be addressed; who is the developer, what are his credentials, details about the property, location, amenities, payment terms, legalities and so on. Adani Realty offers rewarding investment options across India.

  • Who is an NRI?

    Non Resident Indian (NRI) as per India’s Foreign Exchange Management Act 1999 (FEMA), is an Indian citizen or Foreign National of Indian Origin resident outside India for purposes of employment, carrying on business or vocation in circumstances as would indicate an intention to stay outside India for an indefinite period. An individual will also be considered NRI if his stay in India is less than 182 days during the preceding financial year.

  • Who is a PIO?

    A person who is not a citizen of India is deemed to be of Indian origin if he is not a citizen of Pakistan or Bangladesh and if • he at any time held an Indian passport; or • he or either of his parents or any of his grandparents was a citizen of India by virtue of the Constitution of India or Citizenship Act, 1955. A spouse (not being a citizen of Pakistan or Bangladesh) of an Indian citizen or of a Person of Indian Origin is also treated as a Person of Indian Origin for the purpose of NRI deposits if the accounts are held jointly with the NRI/PIO spouse. PIOs are extended the same facilities for bank account maintenance in India as NRIs and are also, for such purposes, called by the generic name as NRIs.

  • What is POWER OF ATTORNEY of Property?

    Power of attorney (POA) of property is a legal document transferring the legal right to the attorney or agent to manage and access the principal's property in the event the principal is unable to do so themselves.

  • What is the loan sanction process and documentation?

    The documentation required to be submitted by the NRIs are different from the Resident Indians as they are required to submit additional documents, like copy of the passport and a copy of the works contract, etc. and of course NRIs have to follow certain eligibility criteria in order to get Home Loans in India. Another vital document required while processing an NRI home loan is the power of attorney (POA). The POA is important because, since the borrower is not based in India; the Home Finance Company would need a 'representative' 'in lieu of' the NRI to deal with and if needed. Although not obligatory, the POA is usually drawn on the NRI's parents/wife/children/ close relatives or friends. The documents needed for obtaining NRI home loans are Bank specific. General list of documents are as mentioned below: • Passport and Visa • A copy of the appointment letter and contract from the company employing the applicant. • The labour card/identity card (translated in English and countersigned by the consulate) if the person is employed in the Middle East Salary certificate (in English) specifying name, date of joining, designation and salary details. • Bank Statements for the last six months List of Classified documents for Salaried and Self Employed NRI Applicants. Banks may have specific requirements apart from the below listed documents.
