Hi, Thanks for the post. I have 1 question. I am an NRI, living in Australia. My address in India is Margao, Goa. So, for Area Code * AO Type * Range Code & AO Number, Do I choose ITO (INTL TAX) MARGAO --- DLC W 520 2 from the pop up window? or Do I choose the Pune one where the application will be mailed. After that, what should I fill for Ward/CircleRange/Commissioner? I have no clue what I should put in there. Please help. Thanks a lot.
