Atleast 3 banks have their ATMs in the T3 Arrival section of Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport: Citibank, Kotak Mahindra and IndusInd Bank. There are 2 ATM kiosks before the customs and atleast 2 after.

Your foreign cards shall work at all the ATMs in the airport, atleast, unless your bank has imposed any restrictions on withdrawing cash in foreign countries.  Make sure that you call and inform your bank of your trip and I would recommend you to have some upper cash limit set on your ATM withdrawl.

ATM transactions certainly don’t give you better exchange rates and, additionally, they can be expensive due to ATM charges and transactional fees.

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 before the customs and after the customs area.

Before the customs, there are 2 currency exchange counters: 1) Thomas Cook and 2) Central Bank of India.  Both the counters are open 24 hours.

Difference: Central Bank of India don’t charge any commission whereas Thomas Cook does and both gives the same exchange rate.

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

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

But remember that 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 then go to the branch of almost any bank in the city to get the rest converted.
