How long can I stay in India on a student visa?

After obtaining the Students Visa, what is the maximum time duration for which I can stay in India? In other words after obtaining the students visa, in how many days do I have to leave India?

International Student in India, Location Unknown

Dear International Student in India:

Your student visa for India, or for any other country for that matter, should state clearly the requirements and conditions of entry and stay. The visa should specify the date by which you must enter India and the duration for which you can stay. Your latest entry date is determined by the requirement by your school for the date by which you must report to the school. The length of time you can stay in India is determined by the specific purpose, which is your particular program of studies. Frequently, the visa is for one year in duration, and renewable annually, subject to meeting the temporary stay requirements.
