I am an Indian. I live in Kolkata, India. I am planning to visit Kerala on holiday tour. It will be a 10-15 day tour. During that period I am wiling to visit Lakshadweep too for 2-3 days. I want to know:

1. What are the procedures for applying for permits for visiting Lakshadweep? Do they permit all ordinary Indian citizen? What are the documents required?

2. After getting the permit, how can I go there by ship? Where will I buy the ship tickets? What is the cost?

3. Is it mandatory to apply for permit in Kerala only? Can I apply for permit and buy ship tickets from Kolkata, online or by post? Do the Lakshadweep authorities have any representation in Kolkata or in Delhi who can arrange all these things?

4. How long they take to give permit?

5. When I reach Lakshadweep, where should I stay? Is there any budget accommodation? How will be the cost for accommodation there? IS it possible to book accommodation in advance either online or by post?

6. What are the things to visit? Is it permissible to roam freely on the islands or there are restrictions/prohibitions?

6. Any other details that you want to provide.

Please provide me these information.

I have a few questions. Please help.
And do not ask to read travel report that is part by part. But it will be helpful if all answers are given here in short and one go!

Time taken from Kochi to Agatti by ship.
At what time the ship leaves Kochi for Agatti? Does it travel at night?
What is best option as per you? By Ship or Air?
What it the time taken to travel from one island to another in Lakshadweep? Example time to travel from Agatti to Kavaratti island is?
Which Islands are open for tourist?
Which is the best island and must visit? Time to reach this island?
If plan is like this:
 Day1 Come by Air. Stay
 Day2. Go and visit another island.
 Day3. Do some sightseeing and leave in afternoon?
 Is this time sufficient?
What are the documents needed for permit?
Where is it submitted? Can it be done online
Should we stay in Kochi for one night before we get the permit?
