Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.
Nothing happens to your 401K value even if you leave to India for good, meaning the underlying assets/securities will retain their current market value. It will remain in what you have it invested. The tax circumstances will depend on when you decide to take withdrawals and where you are living at the time. That would decide your tax circumstances in that particular time.
As far as the best option from a tax perspective, you would have to speak to a tax specialist or tax attorney at that time or when it gets closer. My area of expertise is immigration.
Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
