“On a review of the external sector outlook and as a further exercise in macro prudential management, it has been decided to enhance the limit under the LRS to $250,000 per person per year,” RBI governor Raghuram Rajan said.

“Furthermore, in order to ensure ease of transactions, it has also been decided in consultation with the government that all the facilities for release of exchange/remittances for current account transactions available to resident individuals under Schedule III to Foreign Exchange Management (Current Account Transactions) Rules 2000, as amended from time to time, shall also be subsumed under this limit,” RBI said.

  1. Hi, I am thinking about relocating to Bangalore from USA, but it seems that several restrictions exist against forex / cfd tradings.
    I am wondering if this law is still existing and is being applied to residential/non-residential aliens.
    I also wonder how Indian govt taxes on capital gains from forex/cfd.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Santhosh, As long as you are not trading cfd’s/forex it will be a business income. It is a professional consulting income by referring clients. Once the money is transferred to your account in India it is subject to tax (IT)
