Are you Indian citizen? If yes, no permit fees are required for visiting Bhutan. If you are not Indian citizen, I am not sure, but I think you have to take the services of registered Bhutan-based Travel Agents for your trip. I am not too sure about the charges.

Thank you sir,

According to indian laws, it is an offense if an indian citizen export more than 7000 rupees. But if i carry a bigger sum, is there any checking in pheunsholing?

Nobody checked me in any check-posts in Bhutan and India. In fact, I too carried a bigger amount in INR.

@ atulkini!

You have got your reply from J Ravi.
No checking except they keep track of the Entry Permit at the Check Post. Make a few photocopies of the Permit, it may be (or may not be) required while traveling inside Bhutan. As far as my knowledge goes, there is no restrictions for Indian nationals to carry INR in Bhutan. In fact, INR looks to be a valid tender in Bhutan. Don't equate other foreign travels with that of Bhutan travel. For Indian citizens, it is almost as if you are in your own country! There may be some resistance at some places (not everywhere though) to accept 1000/- or 500/- rupee notes. Personally, I had no problem, I had also carried much more amount than indicated by you.
