It is 26 years since I was India so I haven't a clue but logic would dictatethat ocntacting the Indian authoritiesin your home country might be a good start.  I take it you have exhausted the online options?

Good luck with it as it sounds like a great trip.

For a Protected Area Permit try to get one along with your visa application then it will be added to your visa. Otherwise the Ministry of Home Affairs office (it did take me 3 days to get one, the Indian bureaucracy can be amacing),, for Sikkim and Manipur (maybe for others as well) you can get it at the main road entering (looks like a border post), Arunachal Pradesh the Inner Line Permit at AP Houses in New Delhi, Kolkata or Guwahati, for some other places you will not get it (Nicobar Islands and most of the  Lakshadweep islands for instance).
Have not traveled by motorbike, in general India is not good for camping, but on all the mainroads you find everywhere cheap and very basic accomodation.
