Answer ( 1 )

  1. ​For the purpose of Income-tax Law, an individual can have any one of the following residential status:

    (1) Resident and ordinarily resident in India (also known as resident)

    (2) Resident but not ordinarily resident in India

    (3) Non-resident

    Every year the residential status of the taxpayer is to be determined by applying the provisions of the Income-tax Law designed in this regard (discussed later) and, hence, it may so happen that in one year the individual would be a resident and ordinarily resident and in the next year he may become non-resident or resident but not ordinarily resident and again in the next year his status may change or may remain same.
