Clothing
Light clothing is usually appropriate. A warm sweater and all-weather coat are suggested. Attitude about informal western dress is generally tolerant, but religious sensibilities should be kept in mind. Do not wear shoes into temples and shrines and when entering mosques, the head should be covered. Some religious sites do not allow shorts or sleeveless shirts. Also, it is sometimes frowned upon to bring leather into Hindu shrines. A good pair of sneakers or walking shoes is also necessary.

Social Interaction
If you give the impression of being from a different country, chances are that you might be stared at, especially in the smaller towns. Don't be offended - they mean no harm, it is just curiosity.

Toilets
In India, public toilet facilities are few and far between. Take every opportunity you can to use a clean toilet in places such as hotels and restaurants. Make this a habit wherever you go.

Beggars
Do not let them hassle you, and do not encourage them by giving them money.

Food And Drink
Drink only bottled water. Many popular brands are available. In restaurants insist that they bring a sealed bottle to your table
Beef is not served in many parts of India. Pork is also not easily available.
Eat non-vegetarian food only in good restaurants. The meat in cheaper and smaller places can be of unhygienic. Good quality vegetarian food is easily available.
Curd or yoghurt is served with most meals. It is a natural aid to digestion and helps temper the spicy food.

Tips
Tips or Gratuities are a general trend in India also because in most of the establishments it is not included in the price. For Instance, around 10% of the Bill in Restaurants & Bars could be extended as a gratuity depending upon the standard of the house, service etc.

Shopping
India is a Shopper’s paradise. From local Handicrafts of world famous Rugs, Textiles & Jewellery to International brands you would find everything here.
Bargaining is usual in local Markets.

Most acceptable mode of payment is Cash whereas all major Credit Cards are also acceptable.

Currency :
The currency in India is the Indian Rupee and it is fully convertible. The notes are available in denominations of 1,000, 500, 100, 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1. The Rupee is further divided into 100 Paise. Coins are available in denominations of 5, 2 and 1 Rupee as well as 50 and 25 Paise.

Buying and selling rates of foreign currency fluctuate as in the world over and India is no exception. It would be best to check with us prior to your travel and also on your arrival for prevailing rates.

Money Exchanges :
Money can be exchanged at international airports and approved money-changers. Nationalised and international banks can also change your foreign currency. However, in smaller towns, it may be difficult to change money. Banks are normally closed on Sundays and other Government holidays, but you can always use the ATMs, if you have a valid ATM card. Recognized hotels will also be able to change your money, but at a substantial fee. All international credit cards are widely accepted in India.

It is highly recommended to carry plenty of small change with you during your India trip for small payments, tips, alms etc
