I am planning a visit mid-Nov to BOM as well. Would be very interested in your experience, especially around how they accept a negative RT-PCR test result.

oliver2002 Thank you for that post!
It is quite interesting that any connecting with LH (origin outside Germany) have to register with the Indian mission in Germany.

Soo... I'm landing in BOM at 1.20am. Flights to CCU are available at 6.15am with AI, 7.30 and 1400ish with UK. I will book a flex ticket with UK, but should take the 7am one in the hope all works out and I have a plan B at 2pm, or do I book the 2pm and move it forward when all goes well?

You land at 1.20 AM and still have 5+ hours for the AI flights. Why wait till 2.00 PM. May be 2.00 PM could be a backup if you can't catch earlier AI Flights

I would book the 2PM and change it to 7:30AM if you get done by then (hopefully you will get done!!).

AI only has a single flight in the morning (6am). UK has two flights (7am and 2pm). Indigo and GoAir have a single flight, Spicejet has 3. Thanks to the restrictions imposed by the DGCA/MOCA, all cost roughly the same.
