Currently, I am in US. For this year's ITR, I have a question on double taxation.
I left India on 4th Sep, 2015 and came back on 16th Dec and left again on 29th Dec for US.
Now, I am coming back on 4th March back in India...that makes my total number in India as 199.
1-Apr-15 4-Sep-15 157 16-Dec-15 29-Dec-15 14 4-Mar-15 31-Mar-15 28 199
Now, question is if I stay back in US for 3 additional weeks on vacation post 4th March - my total number of days will be 199-20 = 179.
Though my payroll will switch back to India on 4th March itself which would make payroll > 182 days in India
Is the sole criteria of being a NRI is physical presence of person in India of less than 182 days?
Or is that Payroll should also be less than 182 days in India?
