Yes foreigners can be directors in an Indian company provided that at least one of the directors is a national of India. The Director should be above 18 years of age and must be a natural person. There are no restrictions in terms of citizenship or residency. Therefore, NRI or foreign nationals can be directors in an Indian Private Limited Company. But at least one of the directors in the board of directors must be a resident of India. There is no restriction on appointment of a NRI or foreign national as a Director of a private limited company Registration in India and the procedural requirement are almost the same as they would be for the appointment of an Indian citizen. A NRI or foreign director may be executive or non-executive director.
