In my experience Gujarat and the hills are pretty well tout free areas at any time of the year.

Don't know about Rajasthan as I've only been there in winter.

Overall, the touts are less in summers - it's too hot even for touting - but the touts per tourist are probably more because we see very few tourists in the months of May and June.

But touts can be handled as you can find in one of the threads on this forum

You are giving the touts undue importance by worrying about them even before you begin your trip.

You may deal with them in the manner you think best when you run into them.

For the moment just forget them and plan your trip thoroughly.
