Hi Alex, I might still be doing that if I can't get the Pakistan transit. I doubt the ferry from Dubai will be that cheap, I know Harry Lyon-Smith (vegioil.com) ended up flying his bike!
The company is India's official outsourcing company. Note that the total ended up being €90 so I left it. I confirmed its less than half that to get it direct from the Indian embassy in Turkey. Either way it'll take a week. You need two biometric passport photos, to fill the India application online and two photocopies of your passport. A bank statement is needed if you go to the Istanbul Embassy.
Its possible (according to Indian Embassy in Athens) to go to Nepal and back by getting another visa application at the capital to re-enter India. The two month grace period doesn't apply to Nepal which makes this possible.
