Non-resident Indians (NRIs) are a lucky bunch right now. While they earn in foreign currency, they can invest back home in rupees, which during a time of currency weakness can give them more bang for the buck. .
Given the rupee's depreciation over the past few months, NRIs have been flocking to India's real estate market, even as local buyers shy away. Typically, NRI investors tend to be of two kinds - those who want to earn good returns on their investment and those who purchase property for their family in India.
First, NRIs have no restrictions on how many commercial or residential properties they can own in India. However, there are restrictions on the repatriation of sale proceeds, which is limited to two units. Effectively, this means that while they face no restriction when investing in commercial or residential real estate in India, repatriation of sale proceeds can only be done for two units.
NRIs can invest in real estate by remitting funds to India through normal banking channels, or by investing in funds in NRE/FCNR/NRO accounts maintained in India. They cannot make payment via travelers' cheque or foreign currency notes. They are also restricted from making any payments outside India or settling payments through exchange of funds outside the country.

While the basics - such as income, financial obligations and re-payment track record remain the same, there are different rules for Non-Resident Indians (NRI), Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) and foreigners of Non-Indian Origin.

However, even if you are an NRI or PIO, you do not require permission from RBI to acquire residential / commercial premises in India (other than agricultural land/farm house/plantation property and others which are specifically prohibited by RBI and other concerned authorities).
Also, NRIs are eligible for loans. However, repayment of loan should be made within a period not exceeding 15 years out of inward remittances or out of funds held in the borrower's NRE/FCNR/NRO accounts.
