Can NRI's/PIO's rent out the properties (residential/commercial) if not required for immediate use?
Yes, NRI/PIO can rent out the property without the approval of the Reserve Bank. Rent received can be credited to NRO / NRE account or remitted abroad. Powers have been delegated to the Authorised Dealers to allow repatriation of current income like rent, dividend, pension, interest, etc. of NRIs/PIO who do not maintain an NRO account in India based on an appropriate certification by a Chartered Accountant, certifying that the amount proposed to be remitted is eligible for remittance and that applicable taxes have been paid/provided for.
