Why Infosys Founder Narayana Murthy Wants Return Of Old Regime For NRI Stay Days In India
Murthy believes that the decision to reduce the stay of NRIs from 183 days to 120 days in a financial year has made the country lose 63 days of the presence of NRIs working for the betterment of Indian society.
Speaking at Deshpande Foundation's 14th conference "Development Dialogue" in Hubball, Murthy said, "Though they don't need to, NRIs have a heart to make India better. That's why they come here to spend time.
"My humble request to the Union Finance Minister must restore the old order in this regard and allow government agencies that improve the lives of local residents to stay longer," he said.
"The goal of changing the dreams of the founders of our country to provide the poorest child in the country. a remote village with access to good education, healthcare, nutrition and shelter would be quickly achieved if adopted at huge value government agencies,” Murthy added.
"There is nothing wrong if the stay of NRIs is extended to 250 days. It would only benefit the country as their presence will improve the country. It will also affect startups," he said.
