How much money are we allowed to transfer from India to UK/ USA in order to buy property? I am a British Citizen with OCI. Is it limited to certain amount only yearly.

Kindly give me email ID of somebody who can answer the above questions please? Srinivas Reddy Transfer of up to USD one million, per financial year is generally allowed. As a British citizen you can inherit property located in India. Whether it is agricultural property or any other type of property makes no difference. I’m sorry I make it a point not to refer anyone. unless I truly have dealt with them. You will have to do your own research to find someone to deal with. Perhaps you could Google chartered accountants or tax lawyers who may be able to guide you. Also your bank may be able to offer you some assistance or recommend someone who could help you. If you don't have time for all these questions I understand. We fly into Delhi January 23 and out February 23. My wife and I plan to visit the Rajasthan area Jan 23 to Feb 6th approximately and I think I have found a car and driver that will arrange the hotels and tour of that area. I would also like to do something similar for two weeks in South India where we have a car and driver and maybe we arrange the hotels. Areas such as Goa and Hampi and Kerala and Mysore. I see you gave a couple of examples with phone numbers. How does one find a car a driver on the web? Are you able to recommend a good itinerary for two weeks in South India. We are in our 50s and enjoy culture and sights and people. Not wanting to just lay on a beach or to party. One more thing. If we wish to book a train could we wait until we arrive or should we reserve as soon as possible. Thank you. nice web site you have. David and Nicole Klatt B.C. Canada    Its good to hear from Canadians, My wife and I have just returned from a three month trip in India. We spend quite a bit of time in Vancouver and Seattle and generally visit India once a year. The benefits of early retirement! Regarding your question “How does one find a car a driver on the web?”  All I can say is that some research is required to ensure that you are dealing with reliable people. This is easier said than done, especially for tourists trying to hire drivers on the other side of the world. However safety should be a concern for tourists not only when they travel to India but to any part of the world. I do have an advantage as far as India is concerned because I was born in India and moved to Canada in 1970. I make frequent trips to India. The car/drivers I use on my trip when visiting a new city always are initially hired through proper channels such as a reputed travel agency or hotel. If they turn out to be good, I then have the option of contacting them directly and they need not pay a commission to hotels etc. The examples I have posted on the website about car and drivers are the names and numbers of drivers we used on our trip to India in October 2013. We visited Jaipur, Jaisalmer in the state of Rajasthan, Cochin, Munnar and Kumarakom in Kerala and Srinagar in Kashmir. We found all of them to be honest and trust worthy and posted their phone numbers in an effort to help them get business. Some of these drivers often own their own vehicle but get clients through travel agencies, hotels etc. They don’t have the money to advertise and end up paying almost paying up to 50% of their earnings to the source through which they get customers. Posting their contact information was my way of saying thanks to them. My suggestion to all tourists visiting India would be to find car and drivers through a reputed company first and if they are satisfied with the service then contact them directly the next time. Car and driver rentals arranged by the hotel where tourists are staying is also a safe bet. I would be very cautious of arranging a car/driver from the web without any recommendations. Goa is actually not considered to be in South India but is considered to be South Western part of India. Kerala, Mysore, Hampi and Goa are doable in the two weeks. Use the net to come up with an itinerary that is in line with your preferences and budget.  Good luck with your trip and when you return, if you have any suggestions, tips or photo’s you would like to share with visitors of Travel India Smart, I will be glad to post them. The photographs are from our visit in 2013 trip to Jaisalmer, India. I still have to do a write up on it, I am currently in the process of updating the website.
