Hi there,

No. INR is a semi-closed currency. Get your euros in India, insofar you would be able to sell inr here an in any other Western country the rate is far worse than in India.

You are allowed up to 10,000 USD or the Euro equivalent every year as an Indian going abroad for tourist reasons and this is accessible from many of the major banks in India in foreign currency.

Hence trying to convert the 25000 rupees which is the maximum in INR which you are allowed to leave the country with, in to Euros makes little sense. The rate which you will pay will be prohibitive even assuming you are able to find a dealer to do the exchange.
