    He is perhaps the only other Indian apart from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to have received an official invitation.

    Why they used To Have?

    Because it's the appropriate form to use.

    Re: has or have

    Why would you want to use "too" which means "also"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This is one of the common uses of the perfect infinitive. Perfect infinitives can have the same kind of meaning as perfect tenses. This is the case in the sentence you provided. It could be re-written as, "He is perhaps the only other Indian - apart from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh - who has received an official invitation."
    Dear native English speakers of this forum,
    Please, always point out my grammatical mistakes, assuming you have "the time and the inclination". That is really the most effective way for me to improve. Thank you very much.

    Please note that I am NOT an English teacher.
