The Scheme was introduced on February 4, 2004, with a limit of USD 25,000. The LRS limit has been revised in stages consistent with prevailing macro and microeconomic conditions.
In the case of the remitter being a minor, the LRS declaration form must be countersigned by the minor’s natural guardian. The Scheme is not available to corporates, partnership firms, HUF, Trusts etc.

Kristal provides the relevant information to Clients for their filing. Kristal can refer Clients to a CA should they need any advice or services in this regard. The Clients can evaluate the services and commercials independently.
What is the process for declaration credits received on redemption?
Redemptions are retained in the Clients investment account with Kristal and are part of the tax reports provided by Kristal.
