I have been informed by my travel agent that the Thai visa fees has increased with effect from 1st October. Hence its safe to assume that the visa on arrival fee must have increased too.

I always recommend going with a visa from India. It saves 1-2 hrs of your vaccation time; also queuing up at 6am after a sleepless night is not very pleasant.

I was checking www.vfs-thailand.co.in which is the official website which mentions Tourist Visa as Rs. 2000 + VFS charges around Rs. 300

Not sure if Visa on Arrival and applying Visa in advance has a different fee. Because if they said Visa on Arrival is THB 1900 then it would more than Rs. 2000

Yes its 1900 Baht so applying Visa before your travel is a bit cheaper than Visa on Arrival.
