New Delhi uses the Indian Rupee.
Modern 24-hour ATMs are easily found in New Delhi. However, carry cash as backup in case the power goes down, the ATM machine is out of order, or you lose or break your plastic. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don’t forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and check what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.
