From Indira Gandhi International Airport (Terminal 3):
All international flights and a few domestic flights (Air India, Jet Airways, Vistara, etc.) operate from Terminal 3. At the exit of Terminal 3 (commonly known as T3), one can take pre-paid taxis/cabs operated by Delhi Police for around ₹450 to reach IIT Delhi, Huaz Khas. The distance is about 15 km. One can also take Ola or Uber cabs. Please note that Auto-rickshaws are not allowed to reach T3. There is a metro connectivity from T3 to New Delhi Railway Station from where another metro can be taken to IIT Delhi (Hauz Khas). However, this would take more time (though about half the cost).
