    As per the strict interpretation of law you should include both, the day of arrival in India and the day of departure form India in the calculation of total no of days stay in India.

    But there are few case laws which suggest only one day should be added out of the two. Few other suggest the calculation can be done on hourly basis and 24 hrs should be counted as a day. But the applicability of these case law should be evaluated properly and it is suggested that you should consult a good tax expert before taking any decision on this.
