Non Resident Indian (NRI) and Person of Indian Origin (PIO) looking to sale/purchase property in India

Author: Sachin Gupta | Find me on Twitter

Non Resident Indians (NRIs) and Person of Indian Origin (PIOs) can acquire Immovable Property (either Residential or Commercial) in India by way of purchase, gift, inheritance, or share of joint property received upon partition of family/property, etc. as per the guidelines laid by the Foreign Exchange Management (Acquisition and Transfer of Immovable Property in India) Regulations, 2000.

There is no ceiling on the number of immovable properties acquired or sold in India by NRIs and PIOs. However, NRIs/PIOs belonging to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, China, Iran, Nepal and Bhutan require a prior approval of the Reserve Bank of India for acquiring Immovable Property in India.

It is mandatory to file a declaration of the acquired property with the Reserve Bank of India within 90 days of acquisition of property, on the prescribed Form - IPI 7.

Below is a detailed list of guidelines that an NRI or PIO must adhere to for selling, purchasing, and financing a property in India:
