Submission of No Objection Certificate in case of remittance to a non-resident

1. Section 195 of the Income-tax Act, 1961 provides that any person responsible for paying to a non-resident any sum charge­able under the Act shall, at the time of credit of such income to the account of the payee or at the time of payment thereof in cash or by cheque or draft or any other mode, whichever is earli­er, deduct income-tax thereon at the rates in force.

2. The Reserve Bank of India have provided in their Office Manual that no remittance shall be allowed unless a No Objection Certif­icate has been obtained from the Income-tax Department. It has since been decided that henceforth remittances may be allowed by the Reserve Bank of India without insisting upon a No Objection Certificate from the Income-tax Department and on the person making the remittance furnishing an undertaking (in duplicate) addressed to the Assessing Officer accompanied by a certificate from an Accountant (other than an employee) as defined in the Explanation below section 288 of the Income-tax Act, 1961 in the Form annexed to this circular. The person making the remittance shall submit the undertaking along with the said certificate of the Accountant to the Reserve Bank of India, who in turn, shall forward a copy thereof to the Assessing Officer.

3. The contents of this Circular may be brought to the notice of all the officers working in your charge.
