Do I need to take malaria pills daily for india?

Maybe. Depends on where you are going and how long you'll be there. It also depends on your (and your doctor's) view on risk: some experts recommend "standby treatment" instead of "prophylaxis" for travel to india. In the us we're more likely to recommend prophylaxis. See a travel medicine expert. Find one at www.Istm.Org (international society of travel medicine).
Maybe. Check the cdc website for current recommendations for malaria prophylaxis, the resistance patterns of the plasmodia in the area of india to which you are going, and which form of prophylaxis is currently recommended. This is generally an excellent source of travel medicine info. Believe who also has info.
