I am a senior citizen and confused regarding filling of ITR 2. Is it mandatory for permanent NRI to fill schedule FSI, TR and FA in ITR 2?

Schedule FSI and Schedule TR have to be filled if any foreign income is taxable in India as well as in another country and on which any tax credit is being claimed in India. If you have any income and credit, you will need to fill these two schedules. Schedule FA is required only to be filled by the person who is ordinary resident in India. Since your residential status is non-resident for the relevant financial year, you are not required to report anything in this schedule.
