E-Tourist VISA Scheme

AshwaniG: GG you are correct. I have first hand experience. If stay is less than 30 days than it is worth getting a e-visa even if it is more expensive. Convenience has no price tag ( what else that you don't have to deal with any babus and drive around )

Second mortgage on the house is generally beyond recovery unless property has appreciated in multiple folds.
