    5-7 percent is decent but you do what you feel is comfortable. The 15% or more concept from N.America is followed here..a great many restaurants now also add a 10% service charge so that's a good indicator. about 9 years ago

    Tipping in India is a common practice. Read on to know "how to give tips in India":

    There are basically two types of tips. In the first case, the tip is paid after the work is completed. In the second case, tip is given beforehand to ensure a good service. In hotels, porters and room service attendants are generally tipped at the end of the stay. However, the amount of tip varies depending on the type of services rendered and the type of establishment.

    In restaurants, the tip to waiters is around 10-15 percent of the bill. In cases of restaurants of famous and prestigious hotels, generally a 10 percent service surcharge is added to the bill. Tipping at such a place is discretionary. In smaller places, the tip is not a percentage of the bill. Rather, few rupees are given as a tip, depending on the quality of service.

    Tipping taxi and three-wheeler a driver is not too common. It is up to your discretion. However if you want to give tip, then, 10 percent of the fare or leaving the change is enough. If you are hiring a car throughout your stay, then, tip the driver Rs. 50-100 per day, depending on the distance traveled. At railway stations, pay the porters around Rs. 5-10 per bag. But, make sure to set the rate beforehand. If you stay at somebody's house, ask your host before giving tips to his/her domestic help. over 7 years ago

    My understanding is that drivers and porters and also guides are not so well paid and that they rely on tips. Nothing wrong with being generous in instances where you received great service especially when the driver or guide have been with you for many days. almost 7 years ago

    General Guidelines for Tipping in India are-
    * A tip of 5 to 10% in restaurants is considered excellent.
    * Tip your drivers and boatmen if they got you where you wanted to go quickly.
    * Anyone providing a direct service to you, such as spa staff and barbers will appreciate a small tip at the end of their service. almost 7 years ago
