NRI Legal Services India

An NRI employed abroad may not be in a position to visit his home town in India quite often. But then he might be in need of a host of legal services like help to purchase a land (or property), document registration and fight civil cases against individuals in Indian courts where his presence will be needed.

In such cases, there are organisations that pitch in and offer a bouquet of services to their clients ranging from tax on money remittances and advice on buying property to clarifying on government regulations on certain legal tangles.

Besides, financial services are taken care of by expert organisations that impinge on legal issues. These companies even have branch offices in major countries where there is a sizeable chunk of Indian diaspora to offer them consultations on the need basis to safeguard their immovable assets back in India.

In order to gain confidence of NRIs on their expertise and abilities, these legal units organise year-long seminars and meetings with Indians abroad to sensitise them on what they have to do for a peaceful and happy living once return to India for retirement life. Urgent issues like keeping land documents updated, having a clearly registered title deed with patta from local officials, and adopting a transparent process during any financial deals to avoid litigation later on.

However, most NRIs still seek the help of relatives and friends when it comes to see through business transactions instead of hiring a legal services firm which has the requisite expertise that fulfill all their needs and all take care of emerging requirements.
