The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) guidelines for loans to NRIs:
The amount given in the form of a loan is limited to 85% of the cost of the property as the remaining amount that is 15% needs to be provided an own contribution towards the cost of unit financed, less the loan amount. This amount can be remitted directly from abroad through normal banking channels or from the NRE/NRO account in India. The loan needs to be replayed including both the principal and interest as well as all charges be remitted to the housing finance company from abroad using normal banking channels, the NRE and/or NRO accounts in India. The loan for NRIs is quite feasible, because they are well in economic resource. Definitely, the bankers see the economical stability of the applicant, and sanction a fast loan for an NRI.
