Ø  Health Information

No vaccinations are required before arrival into India. However, the CDC does advise that you take precautions against malaria. Mosquitoes are generally only found outdoors at dusk, however it is wise to be cautious.


Do not drink water from the tap!  While in some of your hotels the water is sufficiently treated to be drinkable, it is better to be safe than sorry.  It is also easier to get in the habit of never using tap water, than to try and evaluate the situation each and every time.  It is also recommended that you use bottled water to brush your teeth.



Ø  Climate

Temperatures in India vary through the year and are different in North and South India.



Maximum average temp. in Fahrenheit


Minimum average temp. in Fahrenheit


Average rainfall in inches



North India

South India








November - March








April - June








July - September

















Ø  Clothing             

December and January can be chilly in the north, and wool sweaters or even a jacket are recommended.  If you are travelling at any other time of the year, or to other parts of India, light cotton clothing will be sufficient. Comfortable and casual are the watchwords.  You should also be sensitive to local customs, and stay away from very revealing clothing, especially outside the major cities.  Those sensitive to air-conditioning might want to carry a small, light wrap to put around their shoulders.


Do bring several sets of clothing, as the roads are dusty and although your vehicle air-conditioned, walking around will get clothes dirty fast!  Laundry service is available in all the hotels so you can replenish your supply of clean clothing, as you need it.


Ø  Visiting places of worship          

When visiting places of worship, women should have their upper arms covered, and skirts or trousers should be at least mid-calf length.  Men should avoid shorts.  Do carry an extra pair of socks in your handbag as you will also need to remove your shoes when entering sacred locations. Try to ensure that your shoes should be easy to slip off and on. 


Ø  Currency

Most international banks have locations in the larger cities throughout India, many with 24-hour ATMs.  If you wish to change money during your stay, banks offer the best exchange rates, but you may also change money at your hotels.  All major brands of traveller’s cheques are accepted in India, and major credit cards are widely accepted in most hotels, restaurants, and larger stores.


The Indian currency is called the “Rupee” and the coins are known as “paisa” and  100 paisa makes 1 Rupee. Coins are issued in denominations of one, two, five and ten rupees. Paper notes are issued in denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 Rupees


There is no limit to the amount of foreign exchange cash or its equivalent that you can bring into India. However you must declare the foreign exchange/currency to the custom officers in the following cases where:

(a) the value of foreign currency notes exceeds US$ 5000 or equivalent

(b) the aggregate value of foreign exchange including currency exceeds US$ 10,000 or equivalent.


Do keep your currency exchange receipts as you may be asked to produce them upon your departure from India, or if you need to reconvert rupees into foreign currency upon departure.


It is illegal for any Foreign Citizen to carry Indian currency into India. A foreign traveler to India would have to exchange his foreign currency into Indian Rupees upon arrival into India at the airport / hotel.


Ø  Language

There are 22 National Languages recognized by the Constitution of India, of which Hindi is the Official Union Language. Besides these, there are 844 different dialects that are practiced in various parts of the Country. The official language is Hindi in the Devanagri script. The States are free to decide their own regional languages for internal administration and education. English is widely spoken.


Ø  Cuisine

Indian cuisine is varied and is not restricted to only curry. An authentic Indian curry is an intricate combination of a stir-fried Masala - a mixture of onion, garlic, ginger, and tomatoes; various spices and seasonings with which meat; poultry, vegetables or fish is prepared to produce a stew-type dish. The word Masala also means spice.


Indian food is categorized into six tastes - sweet, sour, salty, spicy, bitter and astringent. A well-balanced Indian meal contains all six tastes and this is not always accomplished. This explains the use of numerous spice combinations and depth of flavour in Indian recipes. Side dishes and condiments like chutneys, curries, daals and Indian pickles contribute to and add to the overall flavour and texture of a meal and provide balance needed.


Most of the spices used in Indian cooking were originally chosen thousands of years ago for their medicinal qualities and not for flavour. Many of them such as turmeric, cloves and cardamoms are very antiseptic, others like ginger, are carminative and good for the digestion. All curries are made using a wide variety of spices.

The baggage allowance on various Indian domestic carriers which includes Air India, Jet Airways and Indigo Airlines, Jet Airways and its subsidiary airlines JetKonnect has been revised as detailed below.
