What are the general regulations regarding NRI trading in secondary market?

Regulations regarding NRI Trading:

  • Intraday (i.e. buy and sell on the same day) trading is not allowed for NRI clients. Therefore, the NRI investor has to take delivery of the shares purchased and give delivery of shares sold.
  • Each sale transaction will be credited to client account net of tax. Hence, for every sale transaction capital gains will be calculated. At present, the client would be charged a short-term capital gains tax of 15 percent (plus applicable cess) on the gains, whereas long term capital gains tax is NIL.
  • TDS (Tax deducted at source) certificates will be issued by the bank and certificate charges will be levied for each sale transaction.
  • No set off will be allowed but while filing returns the client can claim set off against the TDS deducted.
