Kolkata (Calcutta) Travel Guide

Money

Locations

HSBC (31 B. B. D. Bagh, Central Kolkata, Kolkata, West Bengal. 33/2440–3930. 15 Gariahat Rd., South Kolkata. 25A Shakespeare Sarani. 33/22438585.)

Currency Exchange

Most of the legitimate currency exchange centers keep the same hours and offer the same services and rates. From them you can get far better rates than the hotels. Steer clear of the many cubbyholes with slapdash signs outside touting rates that seem too good to be true (they are); these are particularly prevalent in the New Market area.
