I was just about to ask the same question. Also had anyone received one with a regular tourist visa rather than an Evisa?

OK, that's a shame because having to go and find an SIM is always a pain.

Finding a SIM is not a problem. But the activation period for security checks of between 4 and 48 hours, and the paperwork needed at buying, is really a strong killer for tourists to India. Soooo many other countries with security risks handle this a lot better :-(

They haven't even started it lol

Barely thought of it and immediately killed the initiative.

Yeah, I am not surprised at all.

Since when things are offered for free, especially for tourists?? NOP

You gotta pay my friend $$$
