For instance, a person Ganesh is an NRI (Non Resident Indian) who currently is in London, UK. He wishes to buy property in India and thus needs advice and information on the regulatory framework for investing in Indian real estate.
The NRIs and foreign citizens belonging to Indian Origin (PIO) are permitted to buy Immovable property in India. The people who held an Indian passport (at any time) or who had/have their parents or grand-parents in India come under PIO.
It is to be noted that even if the citizens of Bhutan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal, China, Bangladesh and Iran fulfill above conditions, they are not allowed.
