It is important to determine the residential status of an individual before determining their taxability. The criteria to determine your residential status is as follows:
You are an Indian resident for a particular financial year:
- If you are in India for at least 182 days (6 months) during the financial year or
- You lived in India for at least 60 days (2 months) during the previous year and have lived for at least 365 days (a year) during the last four years.
However, only the first condition is applicable if you are an Indian Citizen working abroad or a member of a crew working on an Indian ship. So if you spend at least 182 days in India during the financial year, you are a resident India.
A person shall be deemed to be of Indian origin if he, or either of his parents or any of his grandparents, were born in undivided India.
