Why does the maximum AMC restrict US and Canada NRIs to invest in Mutual Funds in India ?

The compliance requirements in the United States of America and Canada are more stringent as compared to other nations.Under FATCA, it is compulsory for all financial institutions to share details of all transactions involving US citizens, with the US government. FATCA ensures that there is no deliberate tax evasion on the income generated by US citizens overseas. India signed the Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) with the USA on July 9, 2015, for improving International Tax Compliance and implementing FATCA. Due to this reason, most of the mutual fund houses stopped taking investments from the USA and Canada.
