Madam/Sirs,

Repatriation of refund of funds received for purchase of shares

Under the current exchange control regulations authorised dealers require prior permission of the Reserve Bank to allow repatriation of funds received for purchase of shares.

    2. Remittance of surplus funds received for purchase of shares offered on rights basis.
    3. Remittance on account of surplus funds received for purchase of shares or on account of cancellation of trade, under Two-way fungibility of ADRs/GDRs.

3. Authorised dealers may, accordingly allow remittances representing refund of funds received from a person resident outside India for purchase of shares, in the cases listed in paragraph 2 above, provided that the authorised dealers are satisfied :

    1. with the bonafides of the applicant;
    2. that the repatriation represents refund of funds received for purchase of shares, by way of inward remittance from outside India or by debit to NRE/ FCNR account maintained with an authorised dealer in India;
    3. that no part of remittance represents interest on the funds received.

4. Authorised dealers may bring the contents of this circular to the notice of their constituents concerned.
