The new government has announced the launch of e-visa or visa on arrival program for 43 different countries. Getting a visa for India used to be a lengthy procedure no matter what type of visa you wanted. There were lots of pages in the forms that needed to be filled but it is all being reformed now and you would be able to get a visa when you arrive in Delhi instead of queuing up at an Indian embassy at your home country provided you are from one of the 43 countries that are allowed to avail this facility. E-visa will be issued for 30 days and is not just for tourists but casual business traveler or even some one who wants to come to India for medical treatment can use this e-visa.
