Changing status from resident Indian to non-resident (resident to NRI) Indian applies to bank accounts and investments as well. However, as per section 6(5) of FEMA, an NRI can continue to hold the securities which she/he had purchased as a resident Indian, even after he/she has become a non-resident Indian, on a non-repatriable basis.
