Can NRI Invest in Mutual Fund From NRE Account?

answered on 07/09/2023

Yes, Non-Resident Indians (NRI) can invest in mutual funds from their NRE (Non-Resident External) bank account. NRE accounts are rupee-denominated, so NRIs can deposit and maintain his/her foreign earnings in India in rupees. NRIs can open an NRE account in the form of savings or a current bank account and invest in mutual funds via the same after their Mutual Fund KYC.
