BLR international transit

Hi all, I'm gonna fly DXB-BLR-SIN on IndiGo single PNR. Got information from Indigo that I'll be checked through and the baggage will be transferred. But neither Indigo nor BLR airport are able to give me the information if I'll have to go through the immigration in BLR (and get a transit visa in advance) or there are international to international transfer facilities. Obviously quite an exotic case for them :-) Anyone tried this or seen the transit before immigration in BLR? Thanks

Just a data-point - on arrival at Bengaluru on international flights, I have noticed the sign for "international connections" directing those passengers a different way than the main route which takes arriving passengers to immigration. That strongly suggests one can transit without a visa (presumably only if the baggage will be transferred by the airlines) - but I've never done this myself so I have no first-hand knowledge.

Thanks a lot, guys. Sadly prices for these flight went quite up the next day (maybe the indigo staff realised someone would use it:-)) so I ended up with another carrier, solving similar issue in RUH :-)
