- Avoid interacting with the people of suspicious and unknown organizations or agencies
- Never, especially after sunset, go to unlit or dark areas alone, especially girls.
- Avoid giving money or food to monks, clerics or beggars coming to you for it; you should ignore and stay from them, as they can be thieves or snatchers.
- Never indulge in oily and fried food during your visit, as it may lead to digestive issues.
- Choose the season before visiting India for your convenience because some Indian places are very hot, cold and rainy.
- Always have your valid Indian visa in your pocket or purse to show it when asked.
- Don’t forget to keep some cash in your pocket every time when out because most small shopkeepers and rural-people accept only cash.

- Never forget to remove your shoes or sleepers before entering religious places.
