The write-up “10 Things to Complete before you become NRI” and specifically the 9th point “Sell your shares and open a new NRI demataccount – Once you become an NRI, you will not be able to sell off your existing demat account shares which you bought before becoming a NRI. You can open & operate a NRI demat account. So before you become an NRI, a good idea is to sell off the existing shares and take back the money or the another option is to open a NRI demat account and transfer your existing stocks to this new account.” is very enlightening.
I have a small question. Can the son or married daughter who has become NRI and who could not close demat account liquidate the same by gifting the entire holding to his/her father or mother?
Is selling the entire holding, and not buying/selling, also trading?
Pl. take the trouble to clear such points. It shall be highly appreciated.
