It did not, however, mention any chargables or minimum balance requirements for these accounts. “We serve over 1.5 million NRIs in 150 plus countries and process over 5 million NRI transactions annually. This experience has given us insights into the lifestyles and aspirations of NRIs, and our products are designed to meet their needs,” its executive director Rajeev Sabharwal said. The NRI customers would be able to choose between two types of accounts — NRE and NRO, for ncome generated overseas or income generated domestically like rental income.
