Somtimes help if you look in website address and see if there is in it "gov/"
from that site if you scroll down it says- Point to note:-
indiaonlinevisas.org.in is a commercial website. We are not the Embassy/Consulate/High Commission or the representative of any Government Department of India. If you apply through indiaonlinevisas.org.in, we will consult, support all required documents for your e-Visa applications and you will get your visa update frequently and get e-Visa result from us. To apply e-Visa under our processing, you will be charged service fee and Indian Government Fee. Besides that, you can apply in person at Indian Missions or official Indian Government Website. Our fee will be higher than you apply directly on Indian Government Website or at Indian Missions in your country. If you prefer a non-guided service, you can visit the Indian Government website.

Pity, had that recently with visa to Azerbaijan, there are sites like that that do a rip of off, charge $65-85 instead of $24

And do-no-evil Google makes money by selling these sites space at the top of search listings.

visa application by post to consulate in Australia

I just applied for a tourist visa from Australia and was granted , for the first time ever, a 1 year multiple entry visa for the grand sum of $220 AUD! i read an article not that long ago that reported India complaining about the lack of visitors to their shores which at the time i recall was about 7 million , recent figures put that at nearly 9 million quoting an 11 % increase. When Thailand is getting more than 30 million visitors a year and with most enjoying a 30 day visa free entry it is comes as no surprise that people are still choosing to visit other countries in Asia

Even the 60 day e-visa on arrival costs 100 USD nowadays. It does make you think about visiting different countries without the hefty visa fee, we went to Thailand instead a few years back. The flight was more expensive, as were the hotels and food there. It rained a lot and most of all it just wasn't India!

Comparing similar flights, or hotels; Thailand would be cheaper, on any given week.

The cheapest we could get flights to Thailand (about 4 years ago) was 700 each. The most we pay for flights to India is 500, we do tend to go for the month of December but since I retired last year we will avoid the Christmas and New Year crowds.
