The minimum amount requirement with which you can open an NRI savings account will vary as per the type of Axis Bank account. The minimum monthly balance for the NRI Easy Savings Account, Prime Savings Account & Mariner Account are different.
Having an NRE or NRO account can be a viable option for a Non-Resident Indian since it helps them remit their earnings from another country to India without any hassles. These accounts also help them hold and access the earnings and income made in India through investments in their country of residence.
