Need urgent info.

My 6 year H1B is expiring on 27th Jan 2016. I am travelling to India on 21st Jan 2016. My GreenCard is being processed and is in the recruitement phase of Stage 1. And i will be coming back to the U.S. to work for the same company as soon as possible.

I am planning to work from India on U.S payroll.
   1. Is it legal to work from India on US. Payroll, where my salaries get credited to my u.s. bank account?
    2. I understand that i will be double taxed if i stay in India only if i stay for more that 182 days. Is this a fact?
    3. My company(x) is offering me to transfer me to an Indian company(y), where x and y belong to a parent company(Z). Should i choose to do this? and if i do what is best % of Indian Salary i can expect?

Thanks in advance

I recently got my US passport renewed but haven't received my old passport that had the OCI stamp. I do have my OCI card.
Now i am schedule to travel shortly and wanted to check if the OCI stamp on the new US passport mandatory for traveling to India or just the OCI card sufficient?

Would appreciate any experience and suggestions.

  I am staying in US with H1B VISA valid till Aug2016,i am travelling for vocation to india by this month and while returning i am breaking my journey for couple of days in kuwait to visit my brother. Will it affect my entry to US.
   One of my friend raised a doubt, that it will be a concern since the port of origin is considered to be kuwait when i break the journey in Kuwait, which is supposed to be home country-INDIA. Please advice. I have to change my travel plan and tickets too if this is true.

Hi, I am planning to visit India in July 2014, most of the time we will spend in Rajasthan as we have heard a lot about the state. Does anybody know the places which are awesome but not so popular, Shine Gold Tours India which is our travel agent only suggesting us cities like Jaipur, Udaipur and Pushkar but I want to go beyond that.
