    “Unsettled waters ahead for non-resident Indian sailors?”
    Dear Sir, After reading the above article on the tax liability of Indian seafarers I seek your assistance in clarifying my confusion. I am an Indian Seafarer, employed by a Foreign company and serving on Singapore flagged ships. My salary is credited to my account in Singapore as has been the practice since I was first employed by them nearly 29 years ago. By the nature of my contract I clearly fulfill the NRI status of being out of India for over 183 days in a Financial year. My salary is credited to my savings account in Singapore from which I make periodic transfers of funds to my NRE account in India. I will appreciate your learned advice on whether I would be liable to Income tax in India. As it happens, the Singapore government exempts seafarers (including Singapore nationals) from Income tax.
    Thanks in advance.
