Things to remember when visiting India on an Indian visa:
- Don’t talk to the people from suspicious and unknown organizations or agencies
- Never, especially at night or alone, go to unlit or dark areas alone.
- Don’t give money or food to monks or beggars coming to you for it; you should ignore and stay from them, as they can be thieves or snatchers.
- Don’t eat oily and fried food during your visit, as it may lead to digestive issues.
- Never visit India in the summer if you can’t bear its hot season.
- Don’t forget to have your valid Indian visa in your pocket/purse to show it when asked.
- Keep some cash in your pocket every time when going somewhere because most small shopkeepers and rural-people accept only cash.
- Never forget to value the cultural beliefs of Indians, so don’t kiss or hug your better half publicly or in family restaurants. And, you should wear modest clothes when visiting religious places, shrines, etc.
- Put off your shoes or sleepers before entering religious places.
- Stay in only highly-reputed and registered places with reliable, clean records and security systems.
