Moving to Bangalore, India
Bangalore is India's Silicon Valley and new hot spot for IT professionals. The uplift in the highly skilled labor force has boosted the economy in Bangalore. Bangalore is India's third most populous city with a population of around 8.5 million people.
As a result of its recent IT boom, improvements in the infrastructure and housing conditions have improved making Bangalore very attractive for young families and foreign investors.
Bangalore is a vibrant city full of entertainment, night life and culture. Its not only a feast for the eyes but taste as well. Dinning out in Bangalore is quite inexpensive and a wonderful experience for the exotic food lover.
Bangalore offers all the modern convenience anyone would look for in a city. You still have the outdoor bazaars full of spice and silk merchants however;
many chain retail stores and designer labels fill the shopping malls as the locals now have a little more in their budgets to spend.
Nestled in between the sky scrapers and modern buildings are some of the structures of the past. Old temples and monuments hundreds or even over a thousand years old are scattered across the city and still brightly decorated during religious holidays or celebrations.
Living in Bangalore is quite comfortable to get use to or settle in outside of the warm or hot conditions.
People are generally friendly and helpful but as every new place you journey to there are some precautions you need to take.
And to learn your way around it's a good idea to meet some of the expats in the city to get you started. With so many international companies making the move to Bangalore every year, it won't be hard to make friends and get settled in quickly.
Tips for Living in Bangalore
- Transport tips - The Traffic in Bangalore is one of the most congested situations in the world. It is highly advised to live as close as possible to your place of work.
- Get medical coverage - You need to provide your own health insurance or be able to pay upfront for services. There is good health care in Bangalore but it can be very crowded. Get registered with a doctor as soon as you arrive.
- Learn the prices of things - In the Indian culture it is expected that westerners are rich and should pay more. Ask to see price list upfront and be prepared to haggle a little. Learning the pricing in Bangalore will help keep your budget down.
- Check it out ahead of time - Water is not always clean or standard and sometimes rationed. Check the plumbing, water and inspect toilets before you lease.
- Power outages - Ask if your apartment comes with a power generator, some do. Black outs are not unusual in India.
Cost of living
Overall India is an inexpensive to cheap place to live. Housing cost have risen in Bangalore more than any other city in India. However It is still very reasonably priced compared to Los Angeles, Sydney, London or most metropolitan cities.
Your cost all depend on how savvy you are at negotiating deals, purchases and rent. Most things in India are price negotiable some are not.
Anything that has a price posted is not always negotiable anything that does not such as food items or clothing in open markets or furniture stores are negotiable.
Also keep in mind that the mentality in India is that if you are a foreigner, you are rich and need to pay more. Often you will be charged two times more than a local just because you are not Indian even if your salary is from an Indian business and you earn the same.
Good negotiating skills and loyalty to local merchants could pay off.
Utilities and food cost are cheap; however service, quality and reliability may be a little disappointing to acceptable. If quality is what you look for,
it is possible to purchase just about anything but expect to pay average to higher prices. This also goes for four star restaurants. Luxury is a little more affordable in India but if you are drawing an Indian salary, you can find your money going quickly.
