What to do for investment?
In order to invest in any company in the US market, a broker registered with the US Regulatory Security Exchange Commission (SEC) has to open a demat and trading account. It is similar to a demat account opened in India. Through this account you will be able to pay and will be able to take your shares in demat. But before opening this trading and demat account, the investor has a Know Your Client (KYC). This process is also similar to that of KYC in India.
Payment is in dollars
Under the Liberalized Remittance Scheme of RBI, any Indian can take up to 2.5 lakh rupees. On receiving the dollar, it has to be transferred to the trading account of the American broker. After this you can buy a stock of choice from it. If you want to bring this money back to India, then selling the shares will have to be paid in dollars. After this it can be transferred to the bank. When you convert rupees into dollars or dollars into rupees, then you will get money according to the exchange rate at that time.
