Delhi Airport

Does anyone know if one lands at Delhi airport with 2 bags, can they check in to domestic flight from the international terminal and take bus or do they have to drag the 2 bags in the bus themselves and go to domestic and check in there. more  

If going from T3 to another terminal, it is advisable to spend some money and take a cab, though they claim to provide free bus service, unless you arrive when there are no other passengers on the queue. more  
Mr. Gupta is correct. Baggage has to be custom cleared at first port of landing in India. However, it depends on the airline. All major carriers, like Air India or Jet Airways operate from T3 itself, so its just a short stroll from arrivals of international to departures of domestic, without getting out of the building. However, if you are arriving by Indigo, you have to go with your own bags, get a token for the bus, and then fight like mad for the DTC operated inter-terminal bus, which is probably the shoddiest service of all DIAL service providers. The bus has no queue system, no place for luggage, no porter support, nothing at all. When it moves after leaving behind most passengers, majority of seats are filled with luggage, and passengers are standing. Also, strangely, it drops you are arrival level in domestic terminal, where you have no trolleys but strangely a lot of 'private' porters waiting. more  
No Kulkarni ji, the custom clearance of the baggage is done at the first port of landing in India and then has to be rechecked in at the counter of the domestic airline. The domestic airline may charge for the excess baggage unless the airline is pre informed about the two bags and amount is paid along with the ticket.

Shikha ji, If your domestic air line is Air India or Jet Airways, then the terminal is same and you simply need to take the luggage in the trolley.
If the terminal is different, then you have to carry the luggage yourself in the free bus service to the domestic terminal or hire a taxi for the same.

This is based on my personal experience . more  
Normally, baggage is automatically transferred to domestic flight if you have one ticket (that is from other country to Delhi and from Delhi to other city in India). If you have bought separate tickets and different airlines then you may have to collect your baggage and Delhi airport and checkin again at domestic airport. You should confirm from your agent / airlines. more
