International taxation and taxation for non-resident Indians will be addressed by leading chartered accountant T P Oswal.

World Tax magazine has recognised him as one of the leading 10 tax professionals advising transfer pricing matters in India.
He was very recently appointed a member of a sub-committee on transfer pricing for developing countries by the United Nations and for preparing negotiation manual of treaties by developing countries.
He is a regular speaker at international tax conferences, workshops, seminars and courses in India and abroad.
