In case of salary, services rendered in India is considered to be income deemed to be accrued in India. Hence the salary income from Jan to Feb will be taxable in India.

Though the salary is taxable, it is possible to take a view that the person may claim refund of taxes deducted at source by the UAE employer by filling ROI in India. (provided the income in India does not exceed INR 2.5 lakhs)

An NRI’s income taxes in India will depend upon his residential status for the year. If your status is ‘resident,’ your global income is taxable in India. If your status is ‘NRI,’ your income which is earned or accrued in India is taxable in India. Salary received in India or salary for service provided in India, income from a house property situated in India, capital gains on transfer of asset situated in India, income from fixed deposits or interest on savings bank account are all examples of income earned or accrued in India. These incomes are taxable for an NRI. Income which is earned outside India is not taxable in India. Interest earned on an NRE account and FCNR account is tax-free. Interest on NRO account is taxable for an NRI.
