What is an FCNR Account?

A Foreign Currency Non-Resident (FCNR) Account is a term deposit account in India for an NRI. It can be maintained in foreign currencies such as USD, GBP, EUR, etc. for a fixed tenure ranging from 1 to 5 years. The interest is earned in foreign currency and the income is not taxable in India. Both the principal amount as well as the interest earned on the deposits are freely and completely repatriable.
