- The local currency is the rupee (INR), which is divided into 100 paise.
- Notes are available in denominations of INR1.00, 2.00, 5.00, 10.00, 20.00, 50.00, 100.00 and 500.00. Coins come in 5, 10, 20, 25 and 50 paise, and INR1.00, 2.00 and 5.00 (although the latter is very rare).
- 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.
