In the case of a Non-resident, only the income earned or received in India is taxed in India. Accordingly, income earned outside India by him would not be taxable in India.

India has contracted Double Tax Avoidance Agreements (DTAAs) with various countries. Taxability of Non Resident's Indian income would be decided as per the provisions of these DTAAs. Most of these DTAAs contain provisions for lower rates of tax in case of incomes like dividend, royalties, fees for technical services etc.
