Traffic rules

There are some Indian traffic rules you need to follow while in India. Given below is a list of some guidelines for ensuring traffic safety in India

Indian government recognizes the International Driver's License (IDL) though it is safer to rent a car with a professional driver.

If you are planning to stay in India for a long time and have a valid driver's license (not necessarily an IDL) issued by any competent authority in your country, then getting a driver license in India is no big problem.

If your International Driver's License (IDL) has expired, you can easily get a local driving license in India by submitting your expired license, along with a letter of introduction from your country's Embassy.

Traffic in India moves on the left side. So, be extra cautious while crossing the road, especially if your country follows right side driving.

Wildlife Trade

The Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act bans all forms of wildlife trade.

Violations of the provisions of the Act are punishable with heavy fines and imprisonment.

Foreigners are therefore, advised not to buy any wild animals or their products and derivatives like articles of ivory, fur and skin.

Protected Areas in India

There are certain places in India where entry is restricted.

Tourists are required to take special permits from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), New Delhi for visiting these places.

These places include certain areas of Assam, North Eastern Frontier States (Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, and Arunachal Pradesh) border areas of Jammu & Kashmir, selected areas of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, Union Territories of Andaman and Lakshadweep Islands.

One can visit in person or inquire on phone the details of getting special permits
