A related question..

what if I transfer my money from NRE to another Bank's domestic saving account? is it against Income tax law?

I know you can not keep domestic and NRE accounts in same bank. I got notice from Bank to close domestic account. I'm planning to open NRO but checking the option that if I could use my another bank 's domestic saving account to park my money.

Please advice.

You can gift money to your parents in their domestic account but cannot have domestic account if you have NRI status..

This RBI moves to boost NRI deposits will only be succesful if banks increase NRE FD rates from current around 4% to atleast 8 -8.5% i.e. to be comparable with NRO FDs returns with DTAA benefit. NRE depsits being repatriable will be the advantage.
