    Amis,

    I am from India and strongly advise you to bring all the film you want to shoot. Availability of films except cheap consumer color negative films is erratic at best.

    Regarding Development, Professional E-6 and C-41 development is available. For B&W the only developer option is D-76.

    I'll give you names of the lab depending on type of films you plan to bring.
