Indian visa experience

Published Jan 14, 2013 12:07am

MY father is a very healthy old man and is desirous of visiting India where he lived before partition. He wants to take advantage of the visa clause allowing people above the age of 65 to go directly to the Wagah border and get an Indian visa at the crossing point. The family is wary and he himself is afraid that they may turn him back from Atari. We cannot take that kind of a chance.

We request the authorities to please confirm through these columns if this clause is functional at this time. It will be helpful if someone who has availed himself of this visa facility recently would kindly publish his experience for our benefit. My father cannot wait for this kind of assurance so that he can immediately start his journey to India.
