Banks in Jaipur
Jaipur banks business hours: From 10 AM to 2 PM, Monday to Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 12 AM except bank and legal
Jaipur banking is conditioned by a traditional infrastructure and as a result
tends to propose rather slow connections with the world banking system.
As gem transactions are done in Indian Rupees
(INR), on a cash-only basis, Jaipur banks offer:
> Foreign currency and Travelers Checks exchange service.
> Bank machines (ATMs) where you can withdraw up to 20 000 INR
Depending on your credit card and the agreement you have with
your bank, it is possible in theory to withdraw at ATMs Indian Rupees several
times during the same day. However, in practice, bad connections between the ATMs
and the world banking system limit the amount you can withdraw.
It is therefore easier to bring to Jaipur cash or Travelers Checks in USD,
EUR, CHF, GBP, etc., which are readily exchanged when needed.
Of course, credit
cards are accepted for all travel expenses.
