As an NRI, you require a resident Indian as a co-applicant, co-borrower or co-owner of the property and be a part of the home loan application which is to be submitted.
If you are an NRI and wish to own a property in India, 21 years is the minimum age requirement. Maximum age limit is either 60 years or retirement age, whichever is earlier, at the time of maturity of loan.
As a loan applicant, you should have a minimum overseas work experience of one year for salaried and two years for self-employed.
All leading banks, NBFCs and housing finance companies have defined different salary criteria. So firstly, you can check, compare and choose interest rates offered by several lenders with other eligibility criteria and further can check income bracket of the desired lender.
