Default India Evisa

A couple of questions
1) Is the visa valid from when you enter India, or the moment it is granted
2) how long is it valid 30 or 60 days?

Thanks in advance

The standard visitor visa for the UK costs £93, (last time I looked) considering the cost of living difference, quite expensive.
(When are you going?)

The eVisa price has nothing to do with cost of living differences and is due to reciprocity. From personal experience within family, I know that the fee for Japan and Singapore nationals is $25. Indonesian nationals pay $0 due to their liberal visa policy to Indian tourists . EU nationals pay $80 (previously $75 I think) . US and UK passports pay $100 .

I know that it is due to reciprocity, however it is more 'painful' for Indian nationals due to cost of living.
Many get a Schengen visa as this gives more travel possibilities but reduces tourism to the UK.

That's the point, isn't it ? $100 in eVisa fees simply reciprocates the pain for Indian nationals. Schengen visas are cheaper and offer more flexibility. Therefore mainland EU passports get charged correspondingly less in eVisa fees.

I should have said "income differences" of the majority of travellers, rather than 'cost of living' although the two are related.

(OCI at £200 approx. is reasonable for those who are eligible).

The eVisa fees are based on reciprocity. The higher fees for UK and US nationals correspond to the cost and complexity involved in obtaining visas to those places.

The Indian eVisa system is vastly more convenient than anything the US, UK or EU offers an Indian traveler. It's entirely appropriate that the fee they pay correspond to what an Indian traveler to those places pay.

I am not sure of your point! I know it is reciprocal. The eVisa is obviously convenient for the short stay tourist.
My point was that the the cost of a visa to the UK is a larger chunk of the average salary of an Indian traveller so may deter potential tourists. (USA is, I am told by rels. far less hassle and a 10 year visa is possible for frequent travellers).

The cost of a UK visa is only relevant to this thread in the context of the fees for UK passport holders being approximately the same in reciprocity. Other points are not relevant.
