    If for 2016-17, am outside india (Soth Africa) till Jan'17,and in stay in india is for only 70 days, then what will be my residential status.

    Will my South Africa income for 2016-17 be taxed in india as well?

    Please note i left india on 3rd Jan'16 for employment and i am indian citizen in all the previous years. In short its the first time am outside india.

    You left India for employment in Jan 2016 and will stay in South Africa till Jan 2017which means that your stay outside India will be more than 182 days during the FY 2016-17. Therefore, as per sec 6 of IT Act, your residential status for the FY 2016-17 or AY 2017-18 will be Non Resident and your foreign income will not taxed in India.

    However, the income which will accrue or arise to you in India during the FY 2016-17 will be taxed in India as per IT Act 1961.
