Search the FAQ for entries containing:

Dharmalaya’s programmes are considered ‘ecotourism’, not formal volunteer work, so you should apply for a tourist visa (not an employment or student visa). When we asked the government officials for clarification about this, they said that everyone should apply for a tourist visa and just mention ‘tourism’ as your purpose for visiting India (not volunteering or study).
