Answer MCQ Self Challenge #0084

 

Dear Professional Seniors & Friends,

Warm Greetings!

 

This post of MCQ is on provisions relating to Foreign Exchange Management Act ,1999

 

Answer MCQ 84.1: A) Both are Person Resident in India

 

Answer MCQ 84.2: B) Pune Branch is Person Resident in India and Dubai Branch is Person Resident Outside India

 

Practical Analysis of MCQ 84.1 & 84.2:

 

  • As per the Foreign Exchange Management Act, Section 2(u) defines person as
  • A Company
  • Any agency, office or Branch owned by person.

 

  • Section 2(v) defines Person Resident in India
  • An office , Branch or Agency in India owned or controlled by a person Resident Outside India
  • An office , Branch or Agency outside India owned or controlled by a person Resident in India

 

  • In the Given case, Printex Computers (Singapore), its headquarters in pune and dubai Branch are falling under definition of person. So their Residential Status under FEMA 1999 shall be determined separately.

 

  • The pune Headquarters of Printex Computers falls under the First leg of definition “Person Resident in India” i.e office, Branch or Agency in India owned or controlled by a person Resident Outside India (Controlled by Printex Computers Singapore)

 

  • The Dubai branch of Printex Computers (Singapore), though not owned is controlled by the Pune Headquarters, thus falling in the Second Leg of Definition “Person Resident in India” i.e office, Branch or Agency outside India owned and controlled by a person Resident in India.

 

  • In the Second Question the Situation is Reversed i.e Headquarters is Dubai and Branch is in Pune.

 

  • The Dubai Headquarters of Printex Computers does not falls under any LEG of definition “Person Resident in India” i.e. its office, Branch or Agency is neither in India nor owned or controlled by a person Resident in India(Controlled by Printex Computers Singapore). Thus Dubai headquarters is a Person Resident outside India.

 

  • The Pune branch of Printex Computers (Singapore) , though controlled by the Dubai Headquarters falls in Definition ,“Person Resident in India” i.e  office , Branch or Agency in India owned or controlled by a person   Outside India (Dubai Branch).

 

Based on the above analysis, Correct answer to MCQ 84.1: A) Both are Person Resident in India and Correct answer to MCQ 84.2: B) Pune Branch is Person Resident in India and Dubai Branch is Person Resident Outside India.

 

(Disclaimer: The objective of the MCQ post is just to discuss the concept, it may happen, by change of facts, the answer may be different. Please do not treat this as professional opinion; you can definitely have your own opinion.)

 

Sincere Regards!
