ITR for Non resident Seafarer

This query is : Resolved 

1. Will a seafarer's residential status be considered as "Non Resident" while filling ITR (out for 184 days) (working in Indian Shipping Co.)?
2. Is he allowed to have saving account in Indian banks or NRE/NRO account is must, as he may be resident in one year and non resident in another year?
3. Which ITR form should be filed?
Please help by answering above questions.
Thanks in advance.

1 He will be considered as non resident.
2 Savings bank account may be continued by changing it to NRO and back as SB account.
3 File ITR 2.

Thanks for reply Sir. In case ITR 1 was filed in last 2 AY, what impact will it have?

No impact. Non resident has to file ITR 2 only.

Sorry to miss out on question, I meant to ask, despite being Non resident (having tax free income) in last 2 AY, ITR-1 was filed. Any impact of this. And also, what if NRI seafarer is receiving income in Saving account of Indian bank? Please guide.

No problem now but you should have filed ITR 2. No problem in receiving salary in Indian bank account.

Thanku so much Sir for your help.
