Interest Income On NRE Account
Indian Government is very friendly to NRIs. Someone with NRE account doesn’t have to pay tax on interest income on saving or fixed deposits.
Some smart Indians residing abroad, take a loan from the foreign country at 3-4% and invest their income in India through NRE account and earn tax-free income at 8-9%. Point to note that their income from NRE account is tax-free in India, but it may be taxed in their residing country (as per country law).
Maturity Or Claim Amount By Life Insurance
As per amendments introduced in the Finance Act, 2003, any proceeds received on account of maturity/surrender of an insurance policy were exempt from tax only if the premium paid did not exceed 20% of the sum assured. As an example, if the annual premium is R10,000, to qualify for the exemption, the minimum sum assured under the policy was required to be R50,000.
