The Indian Rupee?
The official currency of India is the Rupee. In 1957 the indian rupee adopted a decimal system meaning all rupees were made up of 100 paises similar to the dollar being made up of 100 cents. The denominations of banknotes for the indian rupee are ₹10, ₹20, ₹50, ₹100, ₹200, ₹500, ₹2,000. The denominations for coins are ₹1, ₹2, ₹5, ₹10. It’s important to note that visitors to India can only bring up to ₹25,000 into the country. Unless you’re an Indian citizen or permanent resident, you’ll need to exchange the rest of your money into rupees on arrival. You can also use the Indian rupee in Nepal, Bhutan and Zimbabwe so if you’re travelling to any of these countries as well hold on to any extra rupees you have left over from India.
