With rupee value falling, real estate has been a lucrative investment option for non-residential Indians (NRIs). Property prices have also been steadily appreciating due to the strong local demand and returns are in double digits. Also, many NRIs prefer to have a home back in India. The RBI's regulations on it are fairly easy as well and you don’t have to obtain prior permission from the authorities. The rules for any such property transaction fall under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).

Investing in a great home away from home is no easy task – especially when you live in another country. An NRI who searches for property in India lays high emphasis not only on the developer's reputation for quality and timely delivery, but also their ability to offer projects in the fastest-appreciating locations, which ensure excellent asset growth and returns. Jains has emerged as the developer of choice for NRIs seeking a robust real estate investment in Chennai.

Jains also has an extensive network of trustworthy channel partners and agents across USA, Dubai, Singapore, UK and Australia to help facilitate NRI investments. Jains Foundations is one of the most preferred real estate developers with NRIs in these countries.
