If a foreign national come to work in India he'll, generally speaking, become liable to income tax. Taxation in India is based on the residential status of an individual rather than on citizenship. Residential status under Indian tax legislation is determined solely based on her or his physical presence in India irrespective of the purpose of the stay. An individual is treated as a resident in a year if present in India for more than 182 day in a year starting from 1st April and ending on 31st March. He can become taxable for all his income earned in India and liable to Income Tax Filing as Foreign Nationals.
