Hi Lavanya,

Importing Indian rupees in India is strictly prohibited.

If you are an Indian citizen then an amount not exceeding Rs. 7,500/- is

allowed while returning from abroad.

Kindly see the following link

Hi..

What Sanjivji has written are the regulations.... In my personal experience, you may carry some money and there is no specific checking, subject to the amount not really being something of considerable importance (read as bundles and bundles).

That 'some' money should be no more than say Rs 1000 to 1500 just for an emmergency. Rupee is a closed currency and bringing in ANY amount is risking getting it confiscated and also having to pay a fine. And it's against the regulations. So, I would advise the OP to please follow the correct advice posted by Sanjivji.
