Sorry, I am not certain how they do the sum.
Worst case scenario: consider you need to spend the full 24-hours of a calendar day to count for "a day in the UAE". So in your example, exclude the travelling days and see what happens. If you are marginal, search the matter further. You can call MOF or chat with them online (calling is better).

2. You must complete 183 in the UAE to qualify for the Tax Residency certificate. The MOF website says 180 days, but for my wife's application they responded: "Regarding your reference number XXX for Issuing Tax Domicile Certificates. Kindly be informed that your application status is Application back to initiator with note : you must complete at least 183 days in the UAE". They had done a mistake when calculating the days present, but I believe the 183 days is correct, in line with international practice (habitual abode). If you do not cover the 183 days, I believe your application will be rejected. You can try it. Worst case scenario you will waist AED105.06 for the travel report and AED105.06 for the online application.

Note 1: For the travel report you have to go before 14:30 and better go well before that. Do not forget credit or debit card.
Note 2: Even if your travel report does not prove that you spend 183 days in the UAE, it may be useful in prooving that you do not spend 183 days in your home country.
Is this information on website? My agent told me only required to stay 1 day every 6 months to get tax residency certificate.

Yes. Only difference is the website says 180 days instead of 183.

To keep the validity of UAE residence visa, yes, you need to be in the UAE minimum 1 day every six months. The visa will get cancelled automaticaly if you are out of the country more than 6 months continuous.
To get the UAE tax residence certificate, no, you need to spend more than 183 in the UAE.

Residence visa and tax residence are two different things.

India is a very litigative country when it comes to taxation, particularly for NRIs. All this because of vague, absurd, & stupid laws determining residential status. If you have stayed in India for more than 60 days in a year, this certificate may save you from expensive litigation that may arise later.
