The Minimum tenure of NRO FD is 7 days.

The term plan for NRO Fixed Deposits range from a tenure of 7 days to 10 years. The NRO account can be opened for the purpose of maintaining the income earned from India such as income from rent, pension, etc. The repatriation of the money in the account can be done up to a maximum of 1 million USD per financial year.

 

Note: 30% tax + surcharge + education cess will be deducted at the source of interest earned in India (only current income such as rent, pension etc. can be repatriated)
