Which bank to choose while opening an NRI account in India?
Is it better to open the account while on a trip to India or shall I open it remotely?
I would be using the account to pay my education loan mostly so should I open an NRE or a NRO account?

I 'll start working in the USA soon.

    Avoid SBI. Too much documentation, not so great service.

      +1. SBI expects you to visit their India office every 2 months and appear in person. Or else they block your account.

    ICICI in India and Wells Fargo in the US have a partnership and international wire transfers from the US to India are free through their ExpressSend feature. Have had those 2 accounts for the last 11 years and it works great, easy to use apps and great customer service.

    Kotak Mahindra is one of the best banks.

    Also please close all your resident accounts if you’re leaving India for couple of years at least. It becomes a big liability otherwise as it’s legally not allowed.
