Valid India visa in old passport Q

My Indian visa is in my old passport (expires Sept 2019 and is 100% full), but the Indian visa is valid until 2022. Am I correct that I can bring my old passport with the valid visa as well as my new passport and together this will work for entrance?

No problem at immigration, but make sure they put the entry/exit stamps in the new passport.

Sometimes hotel clerks get flustered filling out Form C, though. (They should use your new passport number, not the old one.)
