we have funds in our NRO account.

Transfer of funds from NRO account to outside India would need you to complete the FEMA [Foreign Exchange Management Act]. The gist is in Liberalized Remittance scheme. A CA certificate under form 15 CA/CB is required essentially stating taxes on this have been paid. The limit is 250,000 USD per year.

No tax is applicable under current laws.

Yes, this maybe a better option as in the first one transfer of funds from your son back to you would have tax event for you son.
