Loan Schemes For NRI's


All the major banks in India always target Non Resident Indians (NRI ) for financial services. Now these services are extended to loans of all kinds wether they are for building a house or for buying a plot or buying property in the country.

Every bank follow the RBI guidelines to define NRI, "An Indian citizen who holds a valid 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." But now with the introduction of OCI(overseas citizen of India) for people of Indian origin, this market has extended. OCI is for foreign nationals who are of Indian oeigin. OCI have most facilities that NRI's have.

Interest rates for NRI loans do not vary much from that of the Indians living in this country. But the loans will be sanctioned only for a shorter period. NRIs will get only 85% of cost of home as loan amount. The size of the loan depends upon the borrower's repayment capacity. However, there is a maximum limit. Calculation of eligibility is same as that of Indians living in the country.
