Even though you showed them a boarding pass returning right away, and wouldn't leave the transit area?

yup.

Doesn't say anything about who's certifying it...

I seem to recall that the certification is worthless.

With so many vegetarian establishments in India, it would've been the easiest thing for them to get a kosher certificate,  if only someone cared ....

When I was in Mumbai in 2014 the CHABAD apt was around the corner from the Inercontinental, very convenient for Shabbos ( especially since the rooms start on the 4th floor). Now that it has moved back to Nariman house are there any good hotels similarly conveniently nearby? Anyone know?

Taj Mahal is the closest I guess. Oberoi is also not too far.

Anyone have information on the New Delhi Chabad? It seems that some have said that it really isn't a real Chabad, can anyone clarify?

Did you end up going? Any "review"?

Chabad in Mumbai advertises a "restaurant", has any one been there? Can you review it? Can one have a business meeting there?

The idea was short-lived for me. Think South Africa will be the trip instead.

Is there a way to get a deal to stay at the Oberoi Agra near the Taj Mahal?  Online I'm seeing a rate of over 600 a night.  TIA

there are only 2 chabad shluchim in india, in mumbai and bangalore. the rest aren't chabad but Messianics who took the name of chabad without permission and a lot of them don't even know basic stuff of judaism like kashrus etc. I'm saying this because I know from first hand about different things in some of those yellow places.


this still accurate?

Just clarified with him, the only two non meshichist Chabad houses were the ones that were mentioned. There are 16 meshichist.

As far as not being able to trust their kashrus, etc, that's up to each individual to decide.

As a side point, my friend tells me Hampi is incredible.

Anyone know what the current visa status is? I only want to stay for 2 or 3 days.
Can you get one on arrival?
If not, can you transit the airport without a visa?
