Exchanging currency at Delhi Airport

Having access to local currency (Indian Rupee) is the first and foremost important item a foreign traveler would need starting from the airport.

In the arrival section (Terminal 3) of the Delhi airport, there are currency exchange counters between immigration and customs area.

The 3 currency exchange counters are by:

  1. Punjab National Bank
  2. Central Bank of India
  3. Thomas Cook.

All the 3 counters are open 24 hours.

Difference: Though the exchange rates offered by all the three exchangers may be the same but Thomas Cook will charge fees.

Make sure that you ask for Central Bank of India’s counter since they are not as strategically located as Thomas Cook and Punjab National Bank.

You can use the Airport’s interactive map to see where the currency exchange counters are located.

Entry India's Recommendation: Currency exchange rate at the airport is always lower than what you can get in the city.  So, get your foreign currency exchanged to little over what you require at the airport and when you are in the city visit branch of any bank or authorized non-banking exchangers to get the rest of foreign currency converted to India Rupees.

INR to USD
Not sure if this is a recent RBI rule, but no one would change INR to USD for a permanent US resident who is visiting India. They are suggesting banks and airport however I am not sure about the exchange rates and other charges. Does anyone know the differences?
     
Currency Exchange at Delhi airport
I don't think there is any ruling against not allowing US permanent resident to exchange INR to USD. For people who visit US on tourist, how do they get dollar....certainly not only at banks or at Airport. So, this information is not correct. Secondly, airport is more expensive and so doing the exchange at Banks is better option. You can also negotiate the rate with bank if the amount you want to exchange is big.
     
Us Dollars to INR
Is there a cap when exchanging money from US Dollar to INR? Do the banks follow the stock market price when exchanging currency or they have their own exchange rate? If so then what is the value of $1 in INR?
     
US dollar to Indian Rupee exchange limit
Yes, there certainly is the cap to exchange US dollar to Indian rupee. It depends on the nationality as well. For US passport holders the exchange amount is different than Indian passport holders. Yes, Currency has its own exchange market. Banks don't offer the market rate as they have their own cut which they earn while making the exchange. The value of $1 to INR exchanges many times in a day. This site is showing Rs 64.56 right now....http://entryindia.com/exchange_rates.

Permission
Who is/was asking to pay 15 lackhs and to who? There is certainly a limit to exchange such a big amount to Indian currency in one go. Something here doesn't fit well.
