#Venkatachalapathy on Mar 04, 2016 :
Madurai cost of living is comparatively lower than Chennai - Traditional town with lots of Traders.
#SGS MANIAN on Oct 10, 2014 :
The disposable income of Rs 25000/- mentioned above, does it include with or without rent. Please advise.
#SGS MANIAN on May 27, 2014 :
What is the average inflation cost per year. If you add that also, it would be beneficial for NRI's who can think of returning to India. As per
above, disposable income with house in Madurai 25K is sufficient for a family of 3 adults. Would appreciate regular updates on this pistol.

Madurai is one of the best city in Tamil Nadu. As per the above status, you can live with the minimum salary of 25000/= if you have own house, you can save your rent.
