You will also see set of shops like Make Mytrip and Coffee Day in front to you. Walk past them, keeping to your right side. There is an escalator going down at the extreme right end of this pavilion. go down on this escalator and walk straight ahead - you will see a walkway with Meru onto to the right and skycabs to the left. There is a co-ordinator for each of these two who will take your destination details for your safety. Avoid any other taxi service, especially who will stop you before this point and offer taxis.
