A resident is a Non-Resident Indian (NRI) if they have stayed overseas for more than 120 days. The law also states that a person is a resident if he/she has been in India for more than 60 days in the year in question and 365 days during the four years prior to that year. Hence, the NRI can also apply for their PAN card. Therefore, in the case of the NRI, the Assessing Officer (AO) code pertaining to the International Taxation Directorate should be used. In case the applicant is unaware of the correct AO code, then the applicant can select the default international taxation AO code of Delhi Regional Computer Center (RCC) (at present DLC – C – 35 – 1).
