Looking at the visa application form, it asks for two references, one from India, and one from UK. Where do I get an Indian reference from? As for UK reference, can anyone do?
May be daft questions, but I hate filling in forms, and I'm a bit stumped as to what to put.
Cheers in advance.

For the Indian reference, just put the name of a hotel where you're staying (or thinking of staying). For your UK reference anyone who will vouch for you with a UK address will do. These questions seem to be put in just for the sake of it.

Quick question, just filling out my visa application. Where it says "Entry Point" do I enter Kolkata where I'm visiting or Delhi where I change to an internal flight?

Put down your point of entry into India. It might not hurt to include a covering letter when you print off and send in the application explaining that you're going to watch cricket; I did this and got my passport with visa back in six days.

Thanks for the advice, I have written a covering letter also to explain my itineray. You can never be to sure as to being in transit at an airport counts as a point of entry, hopefully I have all bases covered here. If not I've just wasted £50 and will have to re-do the application!

Another question here :)
On the form it asks about previous visits to India and addresses of hotels I stayed in. Should I just type NA in there or try and find the hotels addresses ? That could be a right work up for some of you !!

Do'nt remember that one Mike, certainly never filled it in. You sure its the Indian Visa App :) Trap to find those who trashed their rooms mayhap ? Or maybe its a new one to try and test the people who were daft enough to believe they had the IVA sussed.

If you can't remember the name of the last place you stayed in I'd put a hotel in the same area down; Google maps is pretty good for this sort of thing. Chances of whoever processes your application calling the hotel for corroboration is next to nothing.
