Does anyone know for sure whether it is possible to buy an Indian sim card at the DELHI International Airport OR the domestic airport in the early hours of the morning?

if so where exactly - and apart from a photocopy of passport and a photo do you need anything else?
THANKS

Yes, it's possible. You'll also need a 'local' address and a local reference, with a photo copy of his id that includes an address that matches the address your using as your 'local' address. That's the tough part of the equation.

For the local address, you can give them your hotel confirmation. Also, a copy of your visa may be needed.

I asked the 2 booths of AirTel at Delhi Int'l Airport in Nov. Both of them quoted Rs400 (with Rs5 talk value). YOu have to top up with value. It's too expensive and we didn't buy it.

You do need a copy of your visa. Anyway, Go to an Airtel Store in some city... I just got a fresh sim and it cost me 49 INR, plus 31 INR for a total of 80INR which is basically free. The one previous to this one cost me 400 INR as quoted. But really, is $8.50 US too expensive? I didn't think so.
