Timing of e-Visa application question

Hello, I'm a US citizen who plans to visit India from November 15-December 3. I will be applying for an e-tourist visa.

I will be traveling outside the US from July 1 onwards, so I would like to apply prior to that date. I see that on the application, the window of arrival is 4-124 days and that the e-Visa is valid for 60 days from arrival date.

If I apply on June 15, with an arrival date of October 15, does that mean my e-Visa would be valid from October 15-December 14? If so, even though my ACTUAL arrival would be November 15 would that still be OK because my entry/exit are within the 60 days validity?

You cannot apply as early as June 15. You need to apply at the end of July at the earliest to allow for alterations/cancellations to itinerary. As application is online you can apply from anywhere.
