Property Laws for Overseas Indians & NRIs

Barring agricultural and plantation property, NRIs and PIOs are allowed to invest in property in India, and enjoy the same platform as resident Indians with respect to loans and insurance. They also enjoy parity with resident Indians on the quantum of investment in real estate, which is unlimited for all.

NRIs can purchase property from their remittances from abroad, and enjoy full repatriation benefits for up to two residential properties.

As per FEMA laws, PIOs are required to inform the RBI of their purchase of property in Form IPI 7 within 90 days of the transaction along with a bank certificate declaring the consideration made for the purchase.

The table below explains the policies and restrictions on NRIs and PIOs defined by the Foreign Exchange Management Act, 2000 on the acquisition and sale of property.
