Dunno if I used them when I was there in 2007 (connecting to/from
Bengaluru). Probably not as my connection was Air India both for
domestic and intl flight. I actually just remember a big giant mess
and about 1 hour queueing at visa control in Mumbai when
arriving..:-)...and of course my full day spent in Mumbai airport
because of engine problems on my Mumbai-Paris flight (we turned back
while flight over Iran, after 2-3 hours, then came back to Mumbai,
then waited for an entire day!).
