Packaged Soft drinks are a cheaper option for budget travellers

Backpackers with a limited budget should be aware the beverages in most restaurants are very expensive in most parts of India.
For example, a class of nimbu pani will cost Rs 30-40 at most restaurants and juice centers all over India , with other beverages costing more.
On the other hand, a bottle of soft drinks, carbonated beverage will be more in volume and cost approximately the same.
For example in September 2018 the rates for soft drinks are as follows
Coca Cola , 750 ml, Rs 40
Limca , 750 ml, Rs 40
Additionally these soft drinks are portable, unlike the drinks at the juice center or restaurant which have to be consumed at one go.
