Always look out for these signs:
PWD, DAK, CUSTOMS or INSPECTION BUNGALOW. ALSO GOVERNMENT GUEST HOUSES and any of the *TDC’S.
They are all government buildings that are placed in almost every town, some small villages and country side areas that are there to offer accommodation to visiting officials/ government workers. Officially you need to apply for permission to use their facilities but in most areas they will allow you to turn up unannounced—just polish up your smooth talking skills!
Also look out for A1 service stations– they are mainly found in central India on the main highways.
You can park overnight and have a hot shower for 15Rs each. See below for A1 stations we have spotted in India.
