Guidelines for Acquisition of Property in India by NRIs, PIOs, Foreigners

Non Resident Indians (NRIs), Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs), and Foreign Nationals of non-Indian Origin (Foreigners) can acquire Immovable Property as per the laws and legislations laid down by the Central Government.

Immovable Property Acquisition by NRIs and PIOs

NRIs and 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.

Acquisition by way of Purchase

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has permitted the following categories of NRIs/PIOs to acquire Immovable Property (other than agricultural land, plantation or farm-house property) by way of purchase, provided the payment is made out of Foreign Exchange Inward Remittance or any Non Resident Bank Account in India, i.e., (Non Resident External (NR(E)), Foreign Currency Non Resident Account (FCNR(B)) or Ordinary Non Resident Rupee Account a/c (NRO) in connection with acquisition of Immovable Property in India:

• A Non Resident who is a citizen of India

Acquisition by way of Inheritance

General permission is granted for inheritance of Immovable Property including agricultural land, plantation or farm-house property from:

Government of Maharashtra to construct 32-lakh Houses for BPL Families

The Government of Maharashtra is drawing up a plan to construct houses for 32- lakh families, including 10 lakhs currently living in slums. Most of these slum dwellers are in Mumbai. The remaining 22 lakh families have no houses. They can opt for affordable housing or a 20m x 20m plot for community housing. The government intends to raise these 32 lakh families above the poverty line with this initiative. Currently, as many as 70 lakh families in the state are below the poverty line. All 32 departments of the state government have been instructed to help prepare the vision document in time for a launch during the state’s golden jubilee celebrations in May. The water resources ministry, for instance, aims to increase the percentage of land under irrigation from 16 to 22 over the next five years. This would bring 85 lakh hectares under irrigation. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is being directed to complete infrastructure work worth Rs1.13-crore over the next five years.
