FAQs on India

What is the currency of India?

The only currency accepted in India is the Indian Rupee. The notes have denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, and 2000. The society is largely cash dependent, and so it is advisable to have a good number of small notes in hand to pay the drivers and small merchants. However, there has been a lot of recent interest in going cashless, so all major establishments will accept cards and you may be able to make payments using the PayTM e-wallet at some of the places not accepting cards.

What is the history of India?

India has a rich history, going back to beyond 3000 BC with the beginning of the Indus Valley civilization. This civilization was one of the world's earliest urban civilizations, and is praised for its cities of brick and functioning drainage systems. This period was followed by the Aryan migration to India, starting in the 1700 BC. This era saw tremendous growth in what we now associate with Indian culture. This was followed by the Mughal invasions and many of the existing architectural monuments were built during this time. The most recent Indian history includes the British invasion of India and the struggle for independence.

What is unique about culture of India?

India is a land of cultural diversity and is unified by a few recurring themes. Indians are known to respect their family system and tend to live with their paternal families their whole lives, which is often amazing for foreigners. India is a stratified society, and a lot of importance is attached to a person's background and caste. 40% of the population in India speaks Hindi, followed by the native languages of different regions. Fluency in English depends on one's education level, occupation, and region, but isÊgenerally not a problem in the urban areas. It is widely spoken in all the major cities and around most tourist spots. India is a secular state with great religious diversity and tolerance, which reflects in the country's architecture.

How is India divided into regions?

The country can be broadly categorised into Northern India, Southern India, North-Eastern India, Western India and Eastern India. Visit the overwhelmingly beautiful Himalayan ranges in northern India, the culturally rich northern plains around the rivers Ganga and Yamuna, Kerala backwaters in the southern part of India, the famous tea gardens in north-eastern India, the royal palaces in Western India and the ancient cities in the eastern region.
