From the New Zealand Government’s Safe Travel website –
There is a significant threat from terrorism in India. Terrorist groups have in the past issued statements threatening to carry out attacks in India.
Terrorist attacks may be directed at national institutions within major cities, religious sites, festivals, tourist sites, hotels, markets, fairs, major sporting events, and public transport. Attacks have in the past targeted public places that are frequented by Western tourists. Further attacks cannot be ruled out, including in large cities and popular tourist destinations such as New Delhi, Mumbai and Goa.
New Zealanders should exercise a high degree of caution and security awareness when travelling in India and avoid all rallies and demonstrations. Significant dates (such as religious festivals or dates of national significance) could be a particular focus for terrorists, and travellers should exercise particular vigilance in the lead up to and on these days.
There have been recent media reports suggesting ISIL interest in attacking targets in India. You should remain vigilant at this time, monitor local media and follow the advice of local authorities.
