India to ease visa rules for Chinese travelers, paper says

India is expected to announce relaxations in both travel and business visa arrangements for China during Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s three-day official visit to China starting Tuesday, the China Times reported Sunday, saying it was part of a bid to attract Chinese capital to the country. Singh is also expected to extend the existing validity period for business visas from six-month single entry visas to 12-month multiple-entry ones. India may also speed up issuance of safety licenses, which are essential for visas to start work on infrastructure projects. In 2012, India had a trade deficit of about US$40 billion with China, and that trade gap is believed to be widening each year, the report said.
