In today’s kind of tough scenario i have also seen many NRIs are forced to return to India (Due to Job issues), so sometimes it’s not in your hand. You may have accumulated some of your assets while in India before going abroad. You may inherit some assets from your Parents. You may have some of your responsibilities and goal in India. All this requires you to Plan your finances as per the goals in India. Financial Planning helps you organize your finances and helps you take a holistic view of your life , so you can have a better connection between your money and your Life. And work out on your Investments, Insurance, taxes, goals and many other things wisely.
A Good Financial Planning is all about Good Financial habits

Other issues which makes it Complex are...
With some goals in your Host country and some in Home country, financial management becomes dicey. Sometimes you have some goals in third country as well, to make the calculations further complicated.
Employment Benefits & Rules
Employment benefits, rules and taxation may be complicated in your host country. Especially when you have plans to bring them back to your home country at some point in future.
With Income coming from single or many countries, Investments in multiple countries, You need to manage the Tax rules of all different countries. Even in India FEMA and Income Tax act rules need to be considered
Insurance, Investments, Estate planning, Cash flow management...all needs consideration from all sides. You definitely need Professional Support in Understanding and managing all.
