  • Make sure that you have taken all the required vaccinations like Yellow Fever, Typhoid Vaccine, Hepatitis Vaccine, etc. to avoid medical complications while you are in India.

  • Make sure you inform Ganpat University, International Relations Division/International Students Cell for the Airport pickup at least one week prior to arrival and provide the complete details of flight.

  • You can carry all your money in form of Travellers Cheques, which can be easily redeemed at the airport as well as a number of foreign exchange offices and banks or you can use International Debit / Credit Cards.

  • Temperature ranges between 35 to 45 degree Celsius during summers and 10 to 25 degree Celsius during winters. The winter season starts around November so the warm material (blankets, quilts, woolens, etc.) must be brought accordingly.
