Comment on Account Opening Documentation & Charges

Mohamed Mohideen commented on 21 Jun 2014, 06:06 PM

Hi Nithin

I’m an NRI
My barrage of questions are as below:-

1. Please confirm whether self attested copies of these documents will be suffice for intended purposes

PAN Card (Self attested)
Passport Copy (Self attested) – for Proof of Identity
Latest (Month of June) Original Bank Statement (Commercial Bank, Qatar) – for Proof of Correspondence
Ration Card (Self attested) – for Proof of Permanent address in Chennai

2. At the time of opening my NRE – savings account with Indusind bank, they issued a cheque book with account no printed alongside my name, but by a directive dated in the year 2012, they changed the alphanumeric account nos. with new numeric ones, so my cheque leafs will be with old account no but actually I am practically using my new account nos for all my transaction. Will that be suffice if I attach Cancelled cheque to you as it is bearing old account no or do I need to apply to bank for new cheque book issuance reflecting new account nos.

Note: Bank is still clearing my cheques with old no.

3. In regard to Power of Attorney, please note here in Indian embassy they are having their own standard forms and we need to fill the blanks and sign it in front of official which he will endorse, Could you please confirm whether I can sign it along with witness and send it across your format without embassy endorsement or can I use standard format for PoA with embassy attestation?

4. I am not going to involve in commodities, do I need to send 6 months bank statement as proof of my income?

Hope to receive your clarification at the earliest
