    Dear Mr Soubhagya
    I am an NRI. In June 2014 I bought a Mumbai Pvt. Ltd. company CCDs by paying partly by RTGS (in INR ) and partly by my NRE account cheques

    Now I wish to exit and the company promoters bought back the CCDs at same price they were issued
    I have PAN but no taxable income in India so not filing IT returns
    Please advise
    1. Can the buyer (promoter) file 15CA / 15CB and credit the sale proceed directly to my NRE a/c by RTGS or to my USD a/c abroad ??
    2.If above is not possible than how to proceed for route NRO to NRE to USD a/c ?

    Best Regards

      Hi Ram,

      User PIN is a kind of password for the smartcard/USB token. You need to apply the same.
