On Indian Airlines flights checked-in baggage allowance in economy class is 20 kilograms per person and in business class it is 30 kilograms per person.

Weather in India :

Indian weather is h ot tropical with variations from region to region. Coolest weather lasts from November to mid-March, with cool, fresh mornings and evenings and dry, sunny days. Really hot weather in India, when it is dry, dusty and unpleasant, is between April and June. Monsoon rains occur in most regions in summer between June and September.

What to Wear :

Travel in India as light as possible so that you can go home with lots of souvenirs. Women should dress conservatively.

You can purchase them anywhere in India, at very reasonable rates.

Business Hours :

In the cities, offices are generally open from about 9.30 am to 5.30 pm on weekdays. Saturdays may be off, half-day or full working days.

Tipping in India :

In India hotels, porters and room service attendants are normally tipped at the end of the stay, though an early tip is likely to get you better service. Tipping of taxi drivers is not customary.

Electricity :

The voltage used is 220 volts. You can purchase a converter at most hardware stores for appliances that do not switch to 220V.
