Cur­rency: The unit of cur­rency is the rupee (Rs), di­vided into 10 paisas. Cur­rency notes range from Rs100 to Rs1000, and the most com­monly used coins are 1, 2, 5 and 50 paisa. Be care­ful with 100 and 500 notes which are very sim­i­lar and be wary of ac­cept­ing torn or taped notes as they might not be ac­cepted else­where.

Credit cards: In­ter­na­tional credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard and Din­ers are ac­cepted in the larger shops, restau­rants and ho­tels. Shops will have a credit card sticker in shop win­dows. All for­eign and some In­dian banks have ATM coun­ters ac­cept­ing VISA, MasterCard, Amex or Din­ers Club cards.
