I felt the Expenses List is Correct or at least near to Reality. 10% + or - variation would be there. These Expenses listed are not for High-Income Groups. These are for Middle and upper-middle-class groups...This is my Observation. The Opinion might vary from Person to Person based on their Incomes & Expenditure Structure.

Hi Rajiv, Referring to your post on Apr 08, 2021, please do give a breakup of your cost. How many family members, children, school fees, rent and other costs. Do share money saving ideas as well.

The above mentioned cost of living is not correct.

I'm leading a happy life along with my family in Hyderabad with 20k per month. My salary was 30000 per month and i saved 8k per month without any problem. We had good food and monthly one time movie or dinner and house (on rent) iin a decent locality.

Hyderabad is a place where 10000 per month may seem sufficient for a family and 100000 is also not sufficient if you cant manage properly
