Indian High Commission here has introduced SMS-based appointment system and one-time password (OTP) for tourist applicants with effect from Monday.
Appointment dates for tourist visa applicants, including OTP, will be sent to the mobile phone of the applicants by SMS.
It will be mandatory for tourist visa applicants to show this SMS at the Indian visa application centre to enter and submit the application, said the High Commission on Sunday.
Applicants are advised to fill in their genuine mobile numbers while filling in their forms and applying for online appointment dates.
This will not apply to the tourist visa applicants who have already received appointment dates up to June 5.
