Residency Rule

√ Generally residential status can be of two types:

1. Resident

⇒ ROR

⇒ NROR

2. Non resident

Note: Condition of ROR and RNOR applies only to Individual and HUF

*NOTE: Here      PIO =Person of Indian Origin

PY = Previous Year

ROR = Resident and Ordinary Resident

RNOR= Resident but Not Ordinary Resident

NR = Non Resident

AND = here AND means if any of one is NO – u have to go further in the line of NO.

Person of Indian Origin refers to Overseas Indians, officially known as Non-resident Indians (NRI/NRIs) .

Now as per Income tax act a person shall be deemed to be of Indian origin if he or either of his parents or any of his grandparents was born in undivided India. Example: if a person is born in New York City but his parents were born in INDIA then he will be POI.
