I am a UK citizen with a UK passport, my father was from Bangladesh. My Mother is English and she and my father divorced when I was 3 and so I never knew him. However because he was from Bangladesh I can only obtain a 3 month visa for India, does anyone know why, and if I can add any information with my application to help me get a 6 month visa.

Do you have dual citizenship, as in are you a citizen of Bangladesh as well? – NomadTraveler Nov 25 '13 at 3:24

This might help you, it is an Indian govt site about visa extension.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

When reading the conditions, I am not sure it matches the question (i.e. the parent shouldn't be a Bangladesh citizen). – Vince Nov 13 '13 at 13:01
