The process of acquiring a loan for an NRI in India can be complex and confusing. We have developed the following information in an attempt to make this process straightforward.

Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) are recognized under the Foreign Exchange Regulatory Act, 1973. All banks and housing finance companies follows the RBI guidelines to define NRI – “An Indian citizen who holds a valid document like Indian passport and who stays abroad for employment or for carrying on business or vocation outside India or stays abroad under circumstances indicating an intention for an uncertain duration of stay abroad is a NRI”.

Documents required for Resident Indians as well as for NRIs for getting Home Loans are different in some respect. Home loans for NRIs are available for construction of new house / flats, purchase of old house / flat addition / alteration to an existing house and repairs / renovation etc. NRIs can avail of loans by mortgaging an existing residential property. However, for availing home loans, NRIs have to fulfill certain conditions according to provisions of the Income Tax Act. They should have stayed in India for a period of 182 days or more within an assessment year or they should have stayed in India for at least a total of one year or more.

  • The loan applicant must be at least 21 years of age, maximum age limit is 60 years or retirement age (whichever is earlier) at the time of loan maturity
  • The NRI loan seeker has to be a graduate
  • The loan applicant has to have a minimum monthly income of $ 2,000 (although, this criterion may differ across HFCs). The eligibility is also determined by the stability and continuity of your employment or business
  • The NRI also has to route his EMI (Equated Monthly Installments) cheques through his NRE/NRO account. He cannot make payments from another source say, his savings account in India
  • The eligibility of the applicant is also determined by the number of dependents, assets and liabilities

  • The home loan amount should not exceed 85% of the cost of the dwelling unit, as the remaining amount that is 15% needs to be provided an own contribution towards the cost of unit financed.
  • The cost of dwelling unit which is own contribution financed less the loan amount, can be met from direct remittances from abroad through normal banking channels, the Non-Resident (External) [NR(E)] Account and /or Non-Resident (Ordinary) [NR (O)] account in India.
  • However, repayment of the loan, comprising of the principal and interest including all the charges are to be remitted to the HFC from abroad through normal banking channels, the Non-Resident (External) [NR(E)] Account and /or Non-Resident (Ordinary) [NR (O)] account in India.

NRIs need to submit a few additional documents when compared to resident Indians, these include a copy of the passport, a copy of the works contract, etc. and of course they need to meet the eligibility criteria to acquire a loan. One of the vital documents required while processing an NRI home loan is the power of attorney (POA). The POA is important because the borrower is not based in India; the lender would need a representative in lieu of the NRI to deal with if needed. Although not obligatory, the POA is usually drawn on the NRI’s parents/wife/children.
