INR5000

Better to exchange your $$ at the airport than carrying rupees from here.

Exclamation

You're legally not supposed to bring in any rupees but apparently they don't bother you if you do have some. They don't look for them. I never bring rupees. You can get them when you land at the airport from one of the banks -- you can change your foreign cash or use an ATM machine.

Indian Currency : Bringing Indian currency by any foreign national is prohibited. Only Indians who travel overseas frequently can bring small amount of INR. Hence please bring your country currency and get it exchanged into Rupees here.

None

Lots of threads on this: please search them for the why-nots and wherefores.





(Unless they have reason to stop and search you anyway, they do not look in your pockets or your purse.)
