Carrying money while shopping.
Plan on carrying cash if you are looking at shopping in the local markets in Delhi. Here are a few pointers on how to carry this cash on you. Maybe I am pointing out most obvious facts again but I’ve not seen these being followed by travellers often:
Distribute cash in different comparments of your bag.
The most accessible pocket should have the least amount of money. Not more than Rs 1000. When you are out in crowded markets this is the pocket which gives money.
You can replenish this pocket when you are inside a shop and again start using this money. Please do not take out stack of money to pull out a single note. It attracts unnecessary attention and can lead to expensive errors as you mistake one note for the other.
