Residential status granted to NRI taxpayers during COVID-19 lockdown

The Government has as of late explained on the residential status of NRIs remaining in India during Lockdown.

The COVID-19 lockdown has carried organizations to a stop as well as changed the lifestyle. In addition, some significant authoritative changes have occurred in the previous not many days. As of late a change has been made to Section 6 of the Income-Tax Act, 1961, which decides the residential status of a person in India. This Act has been adjusted to give the residential status to some NRIs or Non-Residential Indians who have remained in India during Lockdown due to Coronavirus.

1. What is there in Section 6 of the Income-Tax Act 1961?

As indicated by the Income-tax Act 1961, the residential status of an individual is subject to the quantity of days he has remained in India in the earlier year or the year going before it. In basic words, it implies that an individual who has lived in India for 182 days or more, during the past money related year will be proclaimed as an occupant of India.

During COVID-19 lockdown, Section 6 of the Act, has represented a slight issue for the non-inhabitants of India, who have come to remain in India.

2. What issues are the non-inhabitants confronting?

As per the CBDT round with respect to the issue, it is noticed that:-

There have been numerous people who had visited India in the past FY 2019-20 for a positive period and had left or had wanted to leave India before the finish of the financial year to hold their status as a Non-Residential Indian.

In any case, because of the Novel Coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown that followed before long, global flights have been dropped banishing them from their pre-expected itinerary items.

As such concerns have been raised in regards to this law, since they are uncertain about the procedures and are concerned they may be attested as residents of India, according to Section 6 of the Act.

3. What change is made to Section 6 of the Income-tax Act?

Considering the above issue, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has given an adjustment in the demonstration. It has concluded that to decide the residential status of a person who has come to India on a visit before 22nd March 2020, they will be qualified for certain legitimate rights-

On the off chance that an individual can't withdraw from India at the very latest 31st of March 2020, his term of remain in India from 22nd to 31st March 2020, won't be thought of.

The equivalent applies to those people who were isolated in India because of Corona Virus i.e., COVID-19, on or after first March 2020; they have loaded up a clearing trip at the latest the 31st of March 2020 or couldn't leave India at the latest 31st of March 2020. The complete time of this stay from the earliest starting point of his isolate period till his date of flight, won't be considered.

The law incorporates those people who have loaded up the departure trip at the latest 31st March 2020. Thus, this will remember the length of his stay for India from the 22nd March of 2020, to his date of flight. Likewise, the taxability of his income will be chosen while Income Tax Return filing for FY 2019-20.

Additionally, the CBDT has issued a notification regarding this.

Without a doubt, this is a genuinely necessary change that has now made in the Income-tax law. This has carried huge help to the Non-Resident taxpayers who were heretofore befuddled with respect to their residential status in India. The adjustment in this law has given them break in these tricky occasions.
