Dear Sir,

With respect to your quarry please find below answer :

As per prevailing RBI Policy Individual is not allowed to take loan from foreigner unless it is for personal purpose. It can be accepted in the form of Gift and later on you can reply it but in the nature of loan same shall not be permitted.

It will also attract issue in repayment of loan and interest payment.

For further details please free to contact me.

Thanks & Regards

Dear Sir,

Kindly note that it is into transaction not permitted by the RBI. Hence there is not much option to it. However you can contact your banker and can make a special case application to the RBI for it and they have power to allow the transaction base don it.

Hello Sir,

Considering your query it appears that you are planning to take a loan from a foreigner in Foreign Currency. Such a transaction is covered under FEMA Laws. You may visit your branch and discuss with them if they allow remittances of Foreign Currency.

In my view, you can take loan under RBI's automatic approval route for the loan proposed to be taken from the foreign citizen.  

Loans from non relatives are not treated as income, provided the loan is genuine.
