Top 25 things to do 
  Medical Information
 
One of the most important dimensions of travel information is the information pertaining to medical fitness. Every visitor is supposed to furnish certain documents which certify that the tourist is medically fit.
Any person ( including infants over six months) arriving by air or sea from an infected country must obtain a yellow fever certificate. Those countries that are considered infected are all African countries (except Algeria, Botswana, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Lesotho, Libya, Malawi, Muritania, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tunisia and Zimbawe) and all South American countries (except Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay). When a case of yellow fever is reported from any country, that country is regarded by the government of India as being infected. · Following WHO guidelines issued in 1973, a cholera vaccination certificate is not a condition for entry in India. However, cholera is a serious risk in this country and precautions are essential. Poliomyelitis and it's widespread immunization is generally recommended. Malaria risk also exists, mainly in benign vivax form. Rainfall throughout the year in the country is below 200m excluding parts of the states of Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Sikkim. High resistance to chloroquine is reported in the malignant falciparum form.

Food & Drink
All water should be regarded as potentially contaminated. Well-water near the Ganges and in West Bengal may contain traces of arsenic chemical. Water needed for drinking, brushing teeth or making ice should first be boiled or otherwise sterilized. Milk is unpasturised and should be boiled.

Packed food must be preferred but if that is not available then hot food must be preferred.

NOTE: All visitors aged between 18 and 70 years of age who wish to extend their visa for a year or more are required to take AIDS test.

Health Care
There are limited health care facilities available in India and hence travelers are strongly advised to take out full medical insurance before departing for India.
