NG1 - which account offers 7%? Also, when you send money to India you lose $ on the conversion to INR and also lose when you convert back to USD. So it's not the same. INR is depreciating every day too.

I have a yesbank nre. It gives be 6 percent. Fixed deposits give me 7.5 percent. How do you lose dollars transferring to india? You gain money. On transferring back sure.

Check kotak mahindra NRE. I am not planning to convert in USD and conversion was almost 74 rupees and it was a win in my book. Plus it is a tax free account
