Hello just thought I would give a shout out here and ask your opinion. We are visiting Calcutta and Delhi in April or May to bring home our baby girl,we won't be doing much sightseeing at all and we r staying in April or May in nice hotels. Would u suggest that we need to get the Malaria pills? Thanks sunsassy

Not sure about Culcutta, but I had to take malaria tablets when I travelled to India, because I was travelling outside of the golden triangle. But you should check the malaria website. I think this one may help http://www.malariahotspots.co.uk.

April and May are the hottest months in India. Kolkotta's heat will be humid while that of Delhi's is dry heat with minimum humidity.

I don't think you need to take Malaria pills during the summer season.

I am basically from Calcutta (or Kolkata as it is now called). No you do not need to carry ani-malerial tablets.
However do carry/buy in India a Mosquito repellant cream and in the unfortunate event of any reaction to mosquito bites.
Enjoy your stay
