    Dear Sir,

    If a person is having NRI status during the FY-11-12, which form he should use?
    In my case the only income source is interest earned from the fixed deposit and interest from NRO account, the total interest earned is very less and the TDS was deducted from these interest income. Now I need to claim the refund of the TDS deducted, kindly advise which ITR from I can use to get the refund and is it mandatory to give details of the NRO account only to get the refund. You advise will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Jignesh
