not filed income taxes in India for past 6 years, how to amend it?



I am an Indian citizen, but was studying till I was 21 years old and did not have any income and did not file income tax returns. After 21, I went abroad for study and work and came back when I was 27. So, I did not file any income taxes in India till now. I filed for income tax for this year on my income earned in India. Did I break any Indian tax laws by not filing income taxes for the past years? If so, how can I fix it?
Can someone please advise?
Thanks

  1. Nothing to worry, just start paying your tax from the current years tax return session. I hope you have already made a PAN card for yourself.


  2. No.
    1. If you do not have income, then you do not file tax return. In fact, you file only when your income is more than income not subject to tax.

    2. When you were abroad, you were not resident in India. So you file return only if your Indian income is more than income not subject to tax. You do not report foreign income.
