INDIA BY ROAD

India has a road network of over 2.9 million km National highways comprise 34,608 km and state highways 128,622km. Several highways such as Delhi-Agra, Delhi-Jaipur (partially) have been upgraded and widened of late. In all, national highways have been widened to four-lane highways in the states of Rajasthan, Haryana, The Punjab, West Bengal, Bihar and Andhra Pradesh.

It is worth mentioning that highway travel has become extremely popular for domestic tourist ever since the small car boom in the country. The most important tourist highways, such as Delhi-Jaipur and Delhi- Agra have comprehensive facilities such as motels, petrol stations, public conveniences, etc., en route. You will also notice several Dhabas on the highways. These are food stalls serving Indian meals and cupfuls of sugary tea or Chai- created for the convenience of truckers. It wouldn't be advisable to try the food there, but they all stock mineral water and cold drinks.

It is also worth mentioning that the tourism departments of Haryana and Rajasthan, states adjoining
Delhi, have, in particular, focused on highway tourism. You will notice several attractive resorts, even a jack Nicklaus golf resort; on you're way to Jaipur from Delhi.

In
India, vast as the country is, roads may be your only means to reach several places, especially way-off towns and the hills. The roads are not always smooth off the main highways and it may be advisable to thoroughly examine your vehicle before embarking on journey.

Bus Service: All states maintain transport corporations, which operate extensive bus services, and it is possible to reach even the remotest of places by bus. (Check respective cities for details.) However, do remember that not all buses are well cushioned and some of the rides can be bumpy and uncomfortable. Take a bus only when you sure of what it feel like. Tourist districts, of course, will have a range of buses- offering air-conditioned, well-maintained interiors. Jaipur's pink Line and Silver line buses are a good example. Road travel is, of course, the cheapest means of transport. A one-way journey to Jaipur on a Pink Line costs as little as US$7.25. However, if you are traveling on your own, do remember to book in advance in the tourist season.

Self-drive: If you are planning a self-drive, India can be an extremely adventurous and interesting destination. Rules for importing a vehicle are as follows: Tourist can import their own vehicles into India with a Carnet de passage (Triptyques) issued by recognized automobile associations or clubs affiliated to the Alliance International de Tourism in Geneva. Cars can be imported free of duty for up to six months and must then be re-exported. An International Certificate for motor vehicles (ICMW) and an international Driving permit are also required. Drivers must possess third party insurance.
