1. Yes you can continue to invest in your PPF Account after becoming an NRI on a non-repatriation basis. But you can only do so till its maturity (15 years). You can not extend the PPF account once it’s matured.


2. No sir. You can’t have a savings account in India after becoming an NRI. You need to convert your Resident Saving Accounts into NRO Bank Accounts or opt for a new NRI Bank Account (NRE, NRO or FCNR)


3. Yes you can send money from your NRE Account to other Resident Saving Accounts (of your Family, Friends etc.)
