Are you booking with an authorized, registered operator?
Off Road Adventure is fully registered with all the India government authorities and the tour and travel associations of India. Many tour companies are not fully compliant with all legal requirements and some so-called trekking / touring agencies do not operate with any permits at all. Some overseas operators hire their staff in India without licenses or taxes being paid to the authorities who could put your trip at risk if something went wrong before your trip or if you had an issue with the operator during your stay in India.
