Can OCI Holders Be Exempted from FEMA Norms? Supreme Court Seeks Centre’s Stand (14 FEB 2023)

For resident OCIs, who have a permanent address in India, an exemption was sought from Regulation 2(d) of the 2018 Foreign Exchange Management (Acquisition and Transfer of Immovable Property in India) Regulations.

A bench of Justice KM Joseph and Justice BV Nagarathana on Monday issued notice on a plea, which has been filed at behest of Association of Resident Overseas Citizens of India and Families, averring that OCIs should not be subjected to FEMA norms as they pay tax on their income generated abroad in India. According to the petitioners, this is arbitrary and in violation of their right to equality.
