Can a foreign national buy property in India while staying on a tourist visa?

No, not at all. No foreign national can buy a property in India while on a tourist Visa. A tourist visa lasts only for 180 days and to own a property in India, it is necessary for foreign nationals to justify the residency requirement of at least 183 days in a financial year.
