Since I just flew into India, they said that they will accept my pilot licence..

Since I just flew into India, they said that they will accept my Pilot's Licence.. as proof of my personal ID and if it has an address in it will do too, as Address Proof. No need for Passport or DL. What a bunch of goonie googoos. What Next!!

Hope this helps you. If I can, I will tell them to go FCUK themselves. You can try to tell them the same or similar view in a different manner too, if you know how. (Such as go and sit on a sixteen penny rusted nail.)**

Good Luck.

** It was associated with nails when they were hand-forged, one at a time. Some say a hundred 3-1/2 inch nails would have cost 16 pennies and thus became known as 16-penny nails. Others say that the number and the d indicate that one 16d (3-1/2 inch) hand-forged nail cost 16 pennies.

You are NOT a NRI. NRI's are Indian citizens with an Indian passport.

You lost BOTH,i.e they cancelled BOTH i.e your Indian citizenship & PP, when you voluntarily & proudly took Canadian citizenship.

You are a Foreign citizen with a Foreign passport - period .

OCI is another joke. Its just a life time visa to India, that's all. Its NOT a dual citizenship. Don't let the word Citizen in OCI - Overseas Citizen Of India fool you.

As a Foreign citizen you are NOT even eligible for Aadhaar card. You are also NOT eligible for regular bank accounts, hence both your regular accounts are illegal. The moment you took Canadian citizenship, you were supposed to convert them into NRO or NRE, which you did not.

The one & only reason you are getting this Aadhaar nonsense from your bank is because they have NO clue you are a Canadian citizen, since you never informed them, either deliberately or unknowingly. They are under the impression you are still an Indian citizen, hence eligible for Aadhaar card or already have an Aadhaar card, hence they are sending you this.

The tax - TDS on NRO account is much higher at 30.6 % , the tax on regular Indian resident account is much lower . Hence most Indians who become Foreign citizens conveniently keep their illegal regular resident accounts as is. They don't convert them into NRO :)

Now banks & Modi are catching up on this scheme. You can't have it BOTH ways !

People bend over and gladly follow the rules of Canadian banks & Canadian gov & CRA ( Income tax ) & CBSA (border guys ) & FINTRAC etc .

But when it comes to Indian banks & Indian gov. , they want to game the system:(

You have 3 choices -

either convert all this nonsense into NRO/NRE or

wait for your account to be frozen one day or

illegally obtain an Aadhaar card when you visit India next, even though you are not eligible for it as a Foreign citizen, and take a chance that they(bank) will never know you are a foreign citizen & keep on acting as a regular resident like you have been doing so far, as far as these accounts are concerned ;)

few misunderstandings -let me clear again

My banks never asked me any Adhar card -CAMS(mutual fund manager org) asking for it --I copy/pasted their email above.

regarding Bank - I asked them many time to convert my accounts to NRO/NRE whenever visited India--they asked me to contact their head office..its not easy to reach HO by phone - so just waste of time.

reason I need these accounts as if I will withdraw my mutual funds in future--money will be sent to these accounts only - otherwise Its easy to open new NRO account

You don't have to close the existing accounts. You JUST have to change the designation on it to NRO from Regular. Everything else remains the same, the account numbers etc. So the money will still be sent to that account after the designation change.

The only reason they are asking is because they have NO clue that you are a Canadian citizen and no longer an Indian citizen, hence don't have an Aadhaar card.

For them you are just a regular Indian citizen, even the address & phone number they have on their file is your Indian address & Indian Phone number. As you never informed them about your status.

Banks, Mutual Funds, Stocks, Real Estate, Income Tax etc are getting extremely strict about Aadhaar & KYC documents, especially post demonetisation. Earlier they were just talking about it, but in the last 1 year or so, they have started implementing it.

Very soon due to FATCA - even US & Canada will be sharing stuff with India and vice versa.

India will start asking for your SIN , your property , investments, bank account, CRA details in Canada.

Canada will start asking for your PAN, Aadhaar, property, bank accounts, investments details in India.
