    I understand no Aadhaar number will be issued for NRI. Is there an exception for a NRI?

    Respected Sir / Madam or even respected Tax Guru Team,

    I have been regular reader of Tax Guru & its articles related to financials, taxation etc from 4 – 5 years now.

    Just now, going through your heading which states that, Tax Guru – Complete Tax Solution. Somehow, i feel & wonder, is it so. Tax Guru’s articles writers mention on their articles stating that , its their opinion & not judgement or may be changes as per the issues. So, in such cases, these articles not giving complete tax solution in my opinion. May be I am wrong & would like to be wrong. But, just a doubt in my mind, hence this writing.
