I am a retired American woman who like to move to Chandigarh city, I get 1400 a month on my social security, can I afford to live in and not be broke>

Do I rightly understand that to live in Chandigarh or Mohali or Punchkula, for 2 people the sum of Rs. 80,000/month may not be enough if you own an apartment. I originally belongs to Punjab and lived in sector 16 in Chandigarh from 1971-1975 and moved to a foreign country in very early 1984. I am retired and would love to come back to Punjab
