To
All Authorised Dealers in Foreign Exchange

Madam / Sirs,

FEMA 1999 – Current Account Transactions – Remittance for maintenance of close relatives abroad- Requests of Indian Nationals on deputation to India from Overseas Companies

Attention of Authorised Dealers is invited to item 7 of Schedule III of Government of India Notification No.GSR.381 (E) dated May 3, 2000 as amended by the Notification No.S.O.301(E) dated March 30, 2001 in terms of which, foreign nationals (other than Pakistani nationals) who are resident but not permanently resident in India may remit net salary (after deduction of taxes, contribution to provident fund and other deductions) for maintenance of close relatives abroad. At present similar requests in respect of Indian nationals employed by overseas companies, on deputation to India, are required to be referred to the Reserve Bank.

2. On a review, it has been decided to extend the same facility of remittance of salary already available to foreign nationals (other than Pakistani nationals) to Indian nationals employed by an overseas company, on deputation to India. Accordingly, it will be in order for the Authorised Dealers to allow remittance of net salary (after deductions of taxes, contribution to provident fund and other deductions) of a citizen of India, who is on deputation to the office or branch or subsidiary or joint venture in India of such overseas company, for the maintenance of close relatives residing abroad. A copy of Government of India Notification No.GSR 397 (E) dated May 1, 2003 issued in this regard is enclosed.

3. Authorised Dealers may bring the contents of this circular to the notice of their constituents concerned.

4. The directives contained in this circular have been issued under Sections 10(4) and 11(1) of FEMA 1999 (42 of 1999).

Yours faithfully,
