Best brokers for NRI trading in India-2017

In this article we are listing best brokers for NRI trading in India.

NRI ("person resident outside India" who is a citizen of India or is a person of Indian origin), PIO or OCI card holders can trade in Indian stocks under Portfolio Investment Scheme (PIS).

NRI accounts are controlled both by SEBI and RBI, so there are some restrictions in NRI trading. NRI can trade only in equity delivery, no exposures, no short selling, no BTST (Buy today sell tomorrow), no Currency derivative trading. NRIs can invest in mutual funds and IPOs through NON PIS [NRE/NRO saving accounts].

Latest Update

With the recent amendment in FEMA regulation, NRIs can now invest in Equity Market like resident individuals. Earlier NRIs were allowed to invest in Equity market through a PIS account only. Now PIS account is required only if you have NRE Account by which you can repatriate (take out the funds out of the country) the sale proceeds.

NRI with NRO Account can trade in Equity Delivery as normal resident Indian. You just need to open a normal trading and demat account and link it with your NRO Saving Account.

NRI is no longer required to open PIS Bank Account for investment in Indian stock market without repatriation benefits.
