Procedure for NRI Filing

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why should an NRI file a return?
NRI is required to file an Income tax return when he has any income that is accrued or has been recieved in India. Filing of return is compulsory so as to avoid double taxation i.e.taxation in two countries or to claim tax refund if your income is in the exemption limit(i.e. Rs.2,50,000). For example- Fees for Technical Services or Royalty recd. from a business established in India, Income from transfer of Capital Asset situated in India etc.
2. Whether I should file a normal return or an NRI return?
This depends on your residential status. In most cases, if you are in India for 182 days or more during that financial year, you will be considered a resident.
