Taxis can be hired at Palam airport, but a less expensive option might be to inform Dr Rajdeep Niyogi (contact information below) to arrange a taxi from Roorkee to pick up people at Palam airport (watch for an IIT Roorkee placard). The journey is approximately 4:30 hrs. It costs approximately Rs 2000 for an Indica (3 people sharing). A large vehicle (Qualis) can be arranged if there are more people travelling.
