Tips for Doing Business in Delhi

The app, the conversation starter and the bar that should be on your radar for your next business trip to Delhi, India

The App: Delhi Maps and Walks

This app helps users see the best of Delhi by providing self-guided walking tour routes – especially useful for visitors looking to avoid sitting in traffic. GPS navigation tools help you stay on track in an unfamiliar city.

Conversation Starter: Fast tracks

Bring up India’s infrastructure plans on your next work trip there. Train travel is a quintessentially Indian experience: the food sellers, the clash of languages, the classic locomotives. But the country’s train culture is primed to get a new dimension, with proposals for a countrywide high-speed rail system. The first line, between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, is expected to be completed by 2022. The second line will likely run between Delhi and Varanasi.
