NRI Home Loans FAQs

For what types of property can an NRI take a home loan?

An NRI can take a home loan at the following circumstances:

  • - For purchasing a house or apartment, constructed or to-be-built in India
  • - For self-constructing a home on a plot in India
  • - For renovating or improving an existing property in India
  • - For financing for the purchase of a plot in India

When will an NRI become eligible for taking a home loan in India?

Note that, the home loan eligibility of an NRI will be calculated in the same way as it’s done for the resident Indians. However, more emphasis will be put on the following factors:
- Qualification: Most frequently, you will be expected to be a graduate
- Current job profile
- Past working experience
- The possibility of continuing working abroad
- The possibility of servicing the home loan, in case you are returning back to India

Are there any tax benefits to NRI home loans?

No, there will be no tax benefits to NRIs on NRI home loans unless he/she file tax returns in India on income generated in India and thus, become eligible to enjoy tax benefits as mentioned by your bank.

What are the documents needed for getting an NRI home loan?

Normally, an NRI will have to submit additional documents when compared to the resident Indians when applying for home loans. The documents will include:
- Identity proof (PAN Card along with Passport and Visa / Work Permit)
- Residence proof (Utility bills like telephone, electricity or water bill / Registered Rent Agreement)
- Salary slips (last 3 months)
- Bank account statement for the last six months for the salary account
- Savings Proof - Saving accounts, Fixed Deposits, NRE/NRO account, Demat account statement, etc.
- Tax returns (e.g., P60 in the UK)
- latest Employment Contract
- Consumer Credit Check report e.g., Experian/Equifax report in the UK or USA
- Pan Card Copy or Pan Number

You would also need to provide the original Power of Attorney at the time of disbursement (unless you plan to be in India at the time of disbursement), usually drawn in favour of your parents, siblings, wife, or children.

What is Power of Attorney (POA) in NRI home loans and when to use it?

Power of Attorney (POA) is something which will allow you to grant another person the power to make decisions pertaining to your property. There are two types in this:
- General POA: This is a situation in which you can confer general rights of your property to someone else. By using this, the POA holder could sell, lease, and/or sub-lease your property.
- Special POA: This is a situation where the chosen person will be given only a specific right by you.

NRIs could make use of POA facility to get their properties registered by a trusted person during their stay abroad.

How can an NRI repay his/her home loan in India?

Repayment of NRI home loans will be carried out as “Equated Monthly Installments (EMIs)”, which will include principal and interest computed on monthly rests. NRIs can pay their monthly instalments by issuing cheques from their NRE or NRO accounts or giving a Direct Debit Mandate in favour of your NRI home loan lender and also give them four post-dated cheques from the account.


In case you are making a part-disbursement of your loan, then the monthly interests will be computed only on the disbursed amount. This payment would have to be made every month-end and the payment would have to be made by you by post-dated cheques.

Can an NRI pre-close a home loan in India?

Yes, an NRI can pre-close a home loan by making a lump sum payment towards part/full payment. However, some pre-closure charges will be applied to it.

They require the self-attested photocopies of the below-listed documents. If your spouse/parents are also a co-owner of the property, then they would be required to become a co-applicant in the loan. HDFC would require the same list of documents from the co-owner too.

You can send the documents to us and post verification, we'll share the documents with HDFC. On receipt of the documents, HDFC will sanction the loan and arrange for the file to be disbursed from the nearest HDFC office in India, where your Power of Attorney is located or where you wish to avail the disbursement.


In case you are unable to go to India to sign the loan agreement to complete the loan documentation process, you will be required to issue a Power of Attorney in favour of a local attorney who could sign the loan agreements on your behalf. I am attaching the soft copy of the POA form. The POA document needs to be notarized either by Indian High Commission or a local notary public and then sent to your local attorney who needs to get the document notarized/adjudicated on a judicial stamp paper as per the local laws of the state.


You will also be required to verify your passport, visa and address proof by either visiting HDFC overseas/India office or getting a copy of these documents notarized from a local Notary Public or India High Commission.
Loan to value ratio for HDFC NRI Home Loans will be 80%/75% (depending on the property cost and loan amount) and for Land Loans, it will be 70% (Subject to valuation by HDFC legal and technical team.


The loan extended is a rupee loan in India and all repayments to HDFC (fees + monthly instalments) must be sourced from your NRE/NRO bank account. In case you do not already have an NRE /NRO account in India then you will need to open one.


HDFC can also sanction a loan on the basis of your income even if you have not identified the property. That way you could budget your property purchase with the comfort of having a loan sanction. The loan will be valid for the next 6 months and can be extended if you have still not identified the property. A reappraisal fee of Rs. 2000 plus taxes are applicable for the reappraisal of the loan.
