The visitor can exchange foreign currency at the airport counter equivalent to INR.10,000/- per person (US150/-approx) at the time of entry. The counters are available after the immigration check. So, any one visiting India should carry foreign currency and exchange at the airport counter at the time of entry to India. The old notes of Rs.500 and Rs.1,000 can be deposited in the depositor's own bank account (NRO account of the depositor) in India upto 31st Dec.'16. It cannot be exchanged for new notes now. The best way to meet the expenditure in India is by debit cards (ATM card of any Indian bank) or credit cards. Most of the shops in cities accept cards. I would also advice to carry cheque book of NRO account for large payments. No hassle at all. more
