Free visa to India may reduce the travel expenses and increase the number of pilgrims to Buddha Gaya said U Maung Maung Myint, deputy chairperson of the Buddha Gaya Pilgrimage Work Committee. The joint statement of Myanmar and India said that the Indian Government had decided to grant free visas to all Myanmar citizens except e-visa. ‘The embassy will soon make the announcement (on granting free visas). Granting free visas can reduce the expenses. I hope it can make the number of visitors higher,' said U Maung Maung Myint.  Since there are between 30,000 and 40,000 Myanmar visitors to India almost every year, the tourism business executives are hoping very much that granting free visas will increase the number further.
