iN SHORT  i want to ask please inform me how to apply for Residency in urguay . If i am an indian and currently residing in INDIA

You may apply for permanent residency with a legal entry to Uruguay. You may request an appointment, for that purpose, in any immigration offices all over the country; it's recommended to schedule an appointment in any office outside Montevideo, because they have lower requests. You'll need several documents, which ain't needed at the moment of scheduled interview, but you must provide them to complete your residence; must important are:
1. Your Birth Registration (legally translated into Spanish, which is the language you'll need to speak in here and, therefore, you eventually must learn and use it),
2. Your Criminal Record (legally provided from your country).
3. Legal Work record from BPS (in Spanish, Banco de Previsión Social or Social Security Bank), for at least 3 months. This will only be normally possible to obtain after interview, because you need to acquire and identity card (cédula in Spanish). All employers know, and it's legally established that any foreign people can work using its passport, but not all of them take this risk; so they will request your Uruguayan identity card, that can be obtained with a paper given at the immigration office, when interviewed.

There are several employment options, and some employer web sites you can use to register your CV. TATA Consultancy services is one of the Indian enterprises that may require your skills, but you must be proficient in computer science. I am Cuban, but I know that here, in Uruguay, there are many Indians; it's a big community you can ask help too.
