Investing in India

DECODING NRI INVESTMENTS AND TAXATION: As an individual investor, why would you want to contend with the complexity of legal codes governing foreign investment in India, the tax consequences in two countries, repatriation, and the risk of currency fluctuations? Because of the potential of comparatively superior returns, that’s why! In the world of commerce and finance, India’s graph is on an uptick.
