Are NRI's eligible for Home Loans in India?
NRIs are eligible for a home loan in India under the same conditions that apply to an Indian citizen. There are a few differences in the rate of interest and loan tenure. The rate of home loan interest is usually higher for an NRI as compared to an Indian resident. While a resident can get a maximum loan tenure of 30 years, for an NRI, it ranges between five and 20 years. There are some conditions that need to be fulfilled before applying for a loan including the following:
- The NRI should be aged 18 years or above
- Should have a valid Indian passport
- Should be employed abroad for two years or more
- Should have a steady source of income
- Should possess a valid work permit
Repayment of loans: An NRI can only repay the loan through the NRE or NRO accounts with remittance from abroad. The borrower can repay in Indian rupees only, and no other currency can be used to this end.
