Why should an NRI invest in India?

Above all these, India is like a tax haven when it comes to investing in equity. The following are the four tax benefits that all investors, NRIs or Residents enjoy on their equity investment:

  • a. Long-term capital gains are tax-free
  • b. Short-term capital gains are taxed at the concessional rate of 10%.
