    You will have to check with the Visa Office, http://in.vfsglobal.co.uk/aboutyourvisas.html
    My understanding is that you can get a visa for a year but your maximum stay can only be for 6 months so you have to leave and come back in again (Sri Lankan side trip?). I'd love the luxury of not having to work for a year, let me know how it works out.
    If you're near Edinburgh the visa admin office on Rose Street might be able to talk you through the process.
