Is a return ticket required when entering India a tourist

I am a US citizen and I have a 10 year tourist visa, do I need to have a return ticket when entering?

I dont know if its the same for the USA, assume so, but I had a friend refused boarding earlier this week as she did not have an onward ticket, they were refused by the airline while in transit in Abu Dhabi, they managed to buy tickets for onward travel to Sri Lanka and were then alllowed to board. They had five year visas which is the maximum you can have in the UK.
