As I will be in RONR for first 3 Years as per my understanding so I have below queries

2.If I want to move to UK Salary Income to India what Indian Bank account should I open ?
3.After spending 3 years being resident in India will the income earned in previous financial years be taxed in India.

Appreciate your help.

25 May 2024 Yes, NRIs/PIOs/OCIs can open an NRO account. Under prevailing FEMA regulations, you will be considered an NRI if:

You are residing overseas (except Nepal or Bhutan) for more than 182 days in one Financial Year (April–March);
