The best city to live in the world is Hyderabad. One can have a lunch or dinner starting with Rs. 5 ( $0.07 ) to Rs 10000 ($ 142) per person. Not possible any where on the globe i think.

I stay in a PG that in which one room is shared by 3. located in heart of the city Mehdipatnam

It has a kitchen to cook food.

Maid cleans Vessels, floor, washroom every day (No fee for maid)

Very reasonable price 1700 per individual, electricity bill would be (70-200) per individual.

The Annual Maintenance fee is 500 RS

1000 is security deposit (Refundable)

I spend 2000 for food, 1200 for bike petrol, 400 mobile recharge, 200 rs movies (once or twice a month)

Total: 1700+200+2000+1200+400+200= 5700

Approx 6000 per month

Except for super hot weather during summer, everything else is very good in hyderabad. I am a kannadiga and during my short stay, I happened to meet telugites from different districts like guntur, vijaywada, vizag etc. People are very hospitable. Job opportunities are also quite good. stay indoors during summer else you will suffer. For those who want to study via correspondence, Osmania University would be the right choice since fees structure is affordable. Schooling is not very expensive. Paradise for meat eaters! Clothing and Housing is also very cheaper.

Embracing the local culture is very important. GOOD LUCK.

Hi All,
Kindly Help.

I might relocate to hyderabad from NCR because of Job Change. The New Company is in Hi-tech city. How much is the average cost of living for a bachelor there. Including Rent, Transportation and Food. How much do I need to spend monthly to survive. I prefer Independent room in a 2 BHK Flat or even a Independent 1BHK would do. If it is a PG then Single room.

Kindly provide suggestions.
