May I ask the average price for tipping in India? It wont be our first time in India, but times are different now, living cost has gone up in India, hence I would like to update the standard rate of tipping.

Ex: Auto rickshaw or Taxi driver? (It was around 50rs for average service and 100rs for really good service, per day in 2013, according to my Indian friends)

Restaurants: My Indian friends don't tip in the restaurants but we still tipped around 10% of the fee.

Hotel wallahs: 10rs to 20rs in 2013, for each luggage. (I normally carried myself and don't tip and my hubby was moaning that I was too tight)

Ayurveda treatment: I tipped 50rs for a 800rs session and the therapist was angry. (In 2013)

and other things........

So could we update the standard rates of tipping in 2017?

Folk in India have got greedy. Yes there has been increases in foodstuffs, gas and EB.

However Indians love to milk anyone. rich or poor, foreign or not. Bramin or Doms.

t is engrained in the society.

Please read dressed up tipping thread. Most probably it should be there under similar threads at the bottom of the page. If not use the search box at the top.

Thanks, have read some articles in the thread. I will stick with what I tipped in 2013. I know I tipped more than average in 2013, so by this time, the same tip should be fair as well
