Updating my NRI status for KYC,mutual fund,stock and other investment?



I have my investment made as indian resident. Now i am planning to register myself as NRI since i moved to US for employment from last year.
Mutual fund,Stocks,savings account,KYC all are created and registered as resident. Now when i ask my banker he is suggesting me to close all this and reopen new account.

I dont want to redeem mutual fund/sell stocks but would like to retain them and update my status alone to NRI. Is that possible?

  1. You can update your KYC.

    Fresh investments can be made from your NRE a/c.( open an account if you do not have one)

    Your existing investments can remain . Your existing bank a/c will be made NRO .

    You do not have to sell.
