08 Dec 2008

NRIs can be defined as:

  • Indian citizens who stay in a foreign country for employment
  • Indian citizens carrying on their businesses or vocations
  • Indian citizens abroad for any other purpose in the circumstances indicating a definite intention to stay outside India for an indefinite period

 NRIs can also be:

  • Indian citizens working abroad on assignment with foreign governments or international agencies
  • Officials of central and state government and public sector undertakings deputed abroad on temporary assignments or posted to their offices abroad
  • Indians who have settled abroad permanently or gone abroad on immigration

Non-resident Indians become residents of India once they come back to India to engage in employment, for carrying on any business or vocation, or for any other purpose indicating a definite intention to stay in India for an indefinite period.
However, those NRIs visiting India for holidays or business cannot be considered as resident Indians.
