The Indian Rupee (INR) is the official currency of the Republic of India and is issued and controlled by the Reserve Bank of India.

The modern Rupee is subdivided into 100 paise. The coins have nominal values of 5, 10, 20, 25, and 50 paise, as well as 1, 2, 5, and 10 rupees. The rupee coins are more widely used than the paise coins which are rarely used in physical commercial transactions. The bank notes are available in values ranging from 1 to 1,000 Rupees.

The Rupee experiences rapid fluctuations in the global market. Check currency conversion.

It is suggested that you exchange your currency either before departing your home or upon arrival at the Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. The hotel offers reliable currency exchange services, too.

 Climate and Dress


Mumbai natives joke that they enjoy three climate seasons: hot, humid and very humid. The months of October to February are the most pleasant. During these months, the city enjoys comfortable weather and clear skies. The average high temperature in February is 31°C (88°F) and the average low temperature at night is 17°C (63°F).

The meeting encourages business casual attire. Meeting rooms are well air conditioned and the inside temperature might be slightly warmer or cooler than you find comfortable. Therefore, it is suggested that you dress in layers (light jackets and/or shawls are a good idea to have with you).
