As an emerging global economic power, India has been engaging in various international transactions, including trade and investments, with other nations. Double taxation, which involves the taxation of foreign income in both the source and resident countries, has been a major challenge to international trade, investments, and economic cooperation. To address this issue, India has signed Double Taxation Avoidance Agreements (DTAA) with various countries to provide relief to taxpayers from double taxation.

DTAA is a bilateral agreement between two countries that helps to avoid the burden of paying taxes twice on the same income. Under the agreement, the taxpayers can claim the tax paid in one country as a credit while filing their tax return in the other country. DTAA also helps to prevent tax evasion and promotes cross-border trade and investments.
