  1. Could you please clarify this? Do NRI has to show his foreign income while filing ITR for his income earned in India? Thanks.

    1. Dear Raju
      As a NRI, rental income earned and received abroad is not taxable in India and you don't have to report it in the India income-tax return.

    2. Thank you very much, but the income earned abroad is not rental income but salary income and sent to NRE account in India. Do this to be reported in the ITR form under exempted income?

    3. Yes Raju, I actually meant any income (and not only rental income)

  2. Thank you very much. That clarifies my doubt. A few C.A. in India says, it is always good to report the Foreign income in the ITR under EXEMPTED INCOME. But I am now clear that only income earned in India through FD, rental income etc.. to be reported in ITR. Thanks.

    1. "Income" word in ITR means Income earned in India. So, Exempted Income is the exempted income earned in India. There is absolutely no need to report your foreign Income.
