What types of rupee accounts may NRIs maintain?
There are 4 types:
1. Non-resident (External) Rupee Accounts (NRE)
2. Non-Resident (Special) Rupee (NRSR) Account
3. Ordinary Non-resident Rupee Accounts (NRO)
4. Non-resident (Non-repatriable) Rupee deposit accounts (NRNR)

What are NRE, NRO and FCNR accounts?
Non-Resident (External) Rupee (NRE). This is a Rupee account from which funds are freely repatriable. It can be opened with either funds remitted from abroad or local funds which can be remitted abroad.

Non-Resident Ordinary Rupee (NRO). This is a Rupee account and can be opened with funds either remitted from abroad or generated in India. These funds are non-repatriable. However, under certain circumstances, these are allowed to be repatriated.

Fully Convertible Non-Resident Rupee (FCNR). This account is similar to the NRE account except that the funds are held in foreign currencies and can be maintained in Pound Sterling,U.S. Dollar, Euro and Japanese Yen. FCNR accounts can be maintained only in the form of term deposits, i.e. a deposit kept for fixed periods ranging from 6 months to 3 years.

How do NRE, NRO and NRSR accounts differ?
Balances held in NRE accounts can be repatriated abroad freely, whereas funds in NRSR and NRO account cannot be normally remitted abroad but have to be used only for local payments in rupees. Consequently, funds remitted from abroad or local funds which can otherwise be remitted abroad to the accountholder can only be credited to NRE accounts
