The Indian government has agreements with several countries to avoid double taxation (tax treaties), the main objective of which is to develop a system for the countries concerned in order to grant the right to a fair taxation of different types of income. Tax treaties are designed to fully protect taxpayers from double taxation and to prevent discrimination between taxpayers in the international field. NGOs/PIOs would therefore be well advised to use such tax planning contracts for their investments in India. A comparison of tax rates according to the DBAA is as follows: the agreement on double tax evasion is a treaty signed by two countries. The agreement is signed to make a country an attractive tourist destination and allow NGOs to decide whether to pay several taxes. DTAA does not mean that NRA can totally avoid taxes, but it does mean that NRA can avoid paying higher taxes in both countries. The DTAA allows an NRI to reduce its tax impact on revenues collected in India. The DTAA also reduces cases of tax evasion. and in both cases, conditions different from those that would be achieved between independent companies are imposed or imposed between the two companies in their commercial or financial relations, so that any profits that are paid to one of the companies, but which are not generated because of these conditions, can be included in the profits of that business and be taxed accordingly. Mr. X, a man based in India, works in the United States. In return, Mr. X receives some compensation for the work done in the United States.
Today, the U.S. government imposes federal income tax on income collected in the United States. However, it is possible that the Indian government may also levy income tax on the same amount, i.e. the remuneration paid abroad, with Mr. X based in India. In order to protect innocent taxpayers like Mr. X from the harmful effects of double taxation, governments in two or more countries can enter into an agreement known as the Double Taxation Prevention Convention (DBAA). The Indian government has entered into agreements with various countries on double tax evasion (DBA) to avoid double taxation of income in order to mitigate the unjustified imposition of hardship on taxpayers. India and the United States have a DBAA that treats and eliminates the impact of double taxation of income taxes in both countries.
Taxpayers should keep in mind that only income tax is covered by DBAA India USA. There is no DBAA agreement for the Indian United States for GST or other types of indirect taxes.

The comprehensive DBAA agreement of India USA is reproduced below as a reference: DBAA India USA would apply to any natural estate, trust, partnership, company, other persons entity or other taxable income entity in India and the United States.
