    Hi.... I am living in New Mexico. I want to acquire commercial properties in India. I want to know, Can foreign citizens of Indian origin acquire commercial properties in India? Wat are the legal formalities to be performed.

    Yes Nitin, under the general permission granted by Reserve Bank properties other than agricultural land/farm house/plantation property can be acquired by foreign citizens of Indian origin provided the purchase consideration is met either out of inward remittances in foreign exchange through normal banking channels or out of funds from the purchasers' NRE/FCNR accounts maintained with banks in India and a declaration is submitted to the Central Office of Reserve Bank in form IPI 7 within a period of 90 days from the date of purchase of the property/final payment of purchase consideration.

    Hey folks,

    I have been long grappling with this in my mind Why on earth citizens of one country buy commercial properties from another? Is it really worth buying it? When one can do his or her business in his or her country, why is it that he or she wants to do it elsewhere? What are the benefits for doing so? Is there any financial income higher than the home country? Or is to elude the eyes of the IT? Someone please throw some light on these. Thanks.
