All Members,  
Dear Colleagues,  
Sub: Circular excerpt on Modifications to the existing e-Tourist Visa Scheme - Liberalization, Simplification and rationalization of Visa Regime in India 
This is with further to our circular dated 2nd December 2016 regarding liberalization, simplification and rationalization of e-Visa.  
Attached please find the excerpt of Ministry of Home Affairs (Foreigners Division) Circular no. 482 dated 29th December 2016 which is self-explanatory. 
However,  the information as given in the enclosure needs to be updated on the Government official website https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/index.html and https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/tvoa.html so that these are put into operations by the Ministry of Home Affairs which is awaited.
Please regularly check the above links to ascertain whether this has been put into operation and accordingly you may advise your FTOs/client for online Visa Application.  
However, we shall also update you once website is updated and this is put into operation.  
With best regards,  
Pronab Sarkar
