Money

The local currency is the rupee (INR), which is divided into 100 paisa.

Notes are available in denominations of INR 1.00, 2.00, 5.00, 10.00, 20.00, 50.00, 100.00, 500.00 and 1000.00.
Coins come in 5, 10, 20 (although these 3 denominations are very rare), 25 and 50 paisa, and INR 1.00, 2.00, 5.00 and 10.00.

Be careful not to accept torn notes from anyone as no-one else will accept them, making them quite useless. Change is often in short supply, so try not to carry large denominations.

Visitors are not allowed to bring Indian currency into India or take it out of the country. However, you may bring an unlimited amount of foreign currency or traveller’s cheques with you. Note that any amount exceeding USD 2,500.00 must be declared on arrival in India. Most foreign currencies and traveller’s cheques can be changed in the big cities.

If you’ve been in India for more than 180 days, you must obtain a tax clearance certificate before leaving the country.

These are available at the foreigners’ section of any income tax department in larger cities. You’ll need to produce bank receipts (‘encashment certificates’) to show that you have changed money legally.
