Have been almost a month in India. Great country and amazing culture. There are many good people out there but also thousands waiting to scam you. The government needs to take serious action as this will affect their tourism.
Part 1: I have visited the railway station to book a ticket, a man then approached me claiming to work for the railyway station. He then said that I can not book a ticket from here and said it was only possible from the government ticket office. I then entered a Rickshaw with the help of this man. The driver took me to an office and they said that they were the government train ticket reservation and because of the weather there will be no trains to jaipur for the next 4 days. He then said that I could take a taxi which costed 12 thousands rupees. I imiedetely understood it was a scam.
I then asked another driver to take me to the railway station, the new driver told me that it was impossible to book a ticket and with a cheeecky smile he took me to another fake office. I then called my hotel in dehli which he informed me that its a scam and to just book from the new dehli railway station.
Part 2: Varanasi Ghat scams
