Monthly Pass (Regular Price) in Kolkata costs
Fare in Non AC bus is average of 15rs so do in Kolkata Metro.
Now for up and down journey it totals to 30rs per day.
Let there be 23 working days in a month [For most people Sunday is a holiday and alternate saturdays], so 690rs. In Kolkata passes work like this, there is a 10% more amount credited to prepaid cards, i.e if recharged with 100rs, the prepaid card balance is 110. So if a person recharges with 700rs extra 70rs is credited, so deducting that, effective price of pass is 630rs. In the website 300rs is given which is totally absurd. If AC buses are considered this estimation is totally out of picture, for AC buses fare starts from 20rs and can be upto 100rs for a one way ticket.

In the last one year the cost of food has gone up exponentially in Kolkata. Carrots this winter are selling for rs100 a kg capsicum at rs150 and one medium sized cauliflower is selling for rs50. The good side of it is that entertainment costs have actually come down. A movie in a leading multiplex comes for as low as rs60 to rs120.

You can easily live in kolkata with Rs.8000/m. And with 1600$/m, you can live life in kings' size.
