Must Buy : Eicher City maps. Rs. 250/-
There was a Book Exhibition in my office yesterday. Seen the Eicher City map book for Mumbai. Costs around 250 bucks. A very detailed map including lanes, building names, restaurants (not all) etc etc. Very useful for someone who doesnt know the roads very well. It'll also help you against auto/cab guys who would take you for long drives.
Maps are also available for Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai etc.
The book is also on sale on Indiatimes : Eicher City Map Mumbai : INR 250.
P.S : It might even help us in our Supercar huntings. What say? *

In India especially one does`nt need a mep.Just roll down the glass and ask any1.
But it`ll be useful for the NRIs and Phirangs who usually get fooled around by every1 in India.
Feel really bad for them.

I have another detailed map book like this.... made by Mappls or something like that.
Its great....but the only problem is that is only uses the "offiicial/ new" name for all the roads......... i dont even know what the official name of the road i live on is!!! so that gets pretty irritating!
What about this one?

I'm using an Eicher roadmap for Delhi........got it 2 years back when I came here, and it's still on my wall. Really detailed stuff. Waitin to get mah hands on the citymap soon
PS: try the Outlook Traveller Getaways too. I got my "52 Weekend breaks from Delhi" for around 200 quid. Was really helpful when makin my trips.

Best Road Atlas
I am planning to purchase an all India road atlas (the kind that is available in book form with different pages covering different areas).
Need inputs in terms of which one is good. I have done some research and saw the following:
1. Eicher all india road atlas: Available at almost all book stores and fairly detailed
2. Times motoring all india road atlas: Saw this in just one place and seemed similar to the eicher one.
3. Lonely planet guide: Seemed to be focused more on tourist attractions than for people who need help with routes.
Please share from your experience and let me know which one I should go in for.
@Mods: Wasnt sure which is the right section for my question (changing gears or rote/travel queries). Please move if I have posted in wrong place.

Boy, you awoke a 5 and half year old thread. I have been using Lonely Planet for my needs and it serves me well. Dunno about the others as I have not got a chance to use em or rather didn't feel the need to pick up another.

I have a detailed road map for Bangalore which runs into over 100 pages, forget the name of the company that brought it out but the details are very accurate, will update the name of the publication once I am able to dig it out !

Boss I have never needed a map in Mumbai. Just stop by and ask anyone and they will give you detailed updated information. 24 hours. Even better than GPS! This is one of the best things about Mumbai.
