One of my foreigner friend is offered to travel few places of rajasthan where the company will handle all his expenses ( Stay, food, intra and inter city travel). All he will have to do is promote their product for 2-3 hrs in each city.

Can he do that ?
No legal issues as he is in india on tourist visa ?

Hmmm... My guess: lots of legal issues!

If it is private meetings, he could call it socialising, and nobody would know anyway, but I still don't think it would be legal.

If it is at all public, Same illegal, but more chance of getting caught. They do sometimes catch people like musicians, actors, etc.

I am not a Lawyer, and it is years since I had a tourist visa.

Any kind of employment or work is not allowed on a tourist visa.

Why would you think that? Payment in mangos is still payment. Benefits have a value. In the case of your friend, travel and accommodation could amount to a very noticeable value. (taxable even!).

You haven't told us nearly enough to even hazard a guess, but here's mine: Business visa?

I have no idea if it is a good guess. You/he have to look at the requirements and see if there is a match.

Why not employment visa? Minimum salary is not required for models and actors. Sounds like that's what he's supposed to be. He'd have to go back to his home country to apply. Will the company pay for that too?

Interenting! I didn't know that! But we have so little detail: we don't know if this person is meeting CEOs in five-star suites, or dancing in village squares!

Those that dance in villages often have a secondary occupation. I visited a village where most of the women were dancers. Friendly people, nice village..

What about tourists who get rounded up to be extras in Bollywood movies?

I suppose it's okay to be one dancer in a crowd. Individual or speaking parts might be too risky. It's hard to escape detection when you're caught on camera and the film shown all across the country.
