Its a query regarding the residents visa?

How could a spouse can apply for the Britain permanent resident visa, if wife/husband is from UK?

Do he/she has to write the IELTS or any other equivalent test for applying for the residency?

please let me know the procedure to follow for applying for permanent visa

Your reply will be highly appreciated.

You can only apply for temporary visa, initially for 33 months. Then after 30 months in UK, you renew for further 30 months and then finally you can apply for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) or permanent residency. For initial visa, if you are from India, you need approved test taken at approved centre at A1, and for renewal A2, and for ILR B1. You need to be sponsored by your spouse, by earning at least £18,600.
