Indian tourist sites refuse entry to dollar

Quotes From a Financial Times article by Jo Johnson

  1. After years of urging foreign tourists to pay in dollars whenever possible, the Taj Mahal and other Indian heritage sites will now insist on a proper hard currency – the rupee.
  2. The country’s culture ministry took the step after confronting a sharp fall in the rupee value of its dollar ticket sales.
  3. Forced now to pay in rupees, US tourists will see a near 30 per cent increase in the cost of visits to leading Indian tourist attractions.
