  • FCNR deposits generally offer higher interest rates than domestic fixed deposits in India, which can provide a higher return on investment for NRIs and PIOs.
  • Since the principal and interest earned on FCNR deposits are paid in the same foreign currency as the deposit, the depositor is protected against exchange rate fluctuations, which can be beneficial for those who want to avoid currency conversion risk.
  • Interest earned on FCNR deposits is not subject to Indian income tax, which can be advantageous for NRIs and PIOs.
  • The principal amount and interest earned on FCNR deposits are fully repatriable in the foreign currency of the deposit, subject to certain rules and regulations, which can provide a hassle-free way to repatriate earnings.
  • NRIs can open an FCNR FD account in several currencies including, US Dollar, Pound Sterling, Euro, CAD, AUD, Yen, etc.

How FCNR Deposit Works?

FCNR deposit works as follows:

  1. The depositor first needs to select the foreign currency in which he/she wants to make the deposit and the amount he/she wants to deposit, subject to the minimum deposit requirements of the bank. 
  2. The depositor then has to choose the tenure of the FCNR deposit, which can range from 1 year to 5 years or more, depending on the bank and the currency.
  3. After agreeing on the fixed interest rate offered by the bank, the depositor has to transfer the foreign currency funds to the FCNR deposit account with the bank.
  4. After this, he/she can earn the fixed interest on the FCNR deposit account for the duration of the tenure.
  5. At the end of the tenure, the principal amount and interest earned are paid back to the depositor in the same foreign currency as the deposit. The depositor can repatriate the funds back to their country of residence or choose to reinvest the funds in a new FCNR deposit.
  6. FCNR deposits can also be prematurely withdrawn subject to certain conditions and penalties, such as a reduction in the interest rate earned on the deposit.
