LOL at these prices. Definitely from some bygone era. White people who are like, hmm let's move here this looks like the cheapest city in the world, the prices are redundant.

Meal, Inexpensive Restaurant 200
Meal for 2 People, Mid-range Restaurant, Three-course Anywhere between 1000-3000 (upscale Machali, Goldfinch etc)
McMeal at McDonalds (or Equivalent Combo Meal) 300
Domestic Beer (0.5 liter draught) 250
Imported Beer (0.33 liter bottle) 500
Cappuccino (regular) 175
Coke/Pepsi (0.33 liter bottle) 50
Water (0.33 liter bottle) 20

Real estate has gone through the roof thanks to almost every family having one person working or having a business in the Gulf countries. Prices shown above are half to even one-third of the actual (both rent and purchase).

Salary - 40000? You got to be kidding me hahaha. 5000 is the monthly salary for unskilled labor, 8000-12000 for skilled labor. Private enterprise and industries are nearly non existent. The few places that are open (car/bike showrooms, bank branches, small businesses pay a maximum of 25,000 per month going upto 50,000 only for senior managers 50 plus)

All in all, a sleepy town with no future, absolutely non existent nightlife. And yeah, be careful of overt PDA or even having a drink with your SO in a pub or even a restaurant. Hindu right wing moral fanatics always on the loose trying to stir shit up.

This website provides useful information to people moving into another city.
Well compiled information.

Newspapers say that you have rated Mangalore as 41 in Quality of Life globally, 12 in the world in Healthcare.
May I know how many respondents you had while doing this survey?
May I know the results for say 50 cities in India? (who wants to know about Helsinki or Zagreb).

I live in Mangalore and regretfully have to state that of the 60 wards in MCC only 20 odd are looked after; the rest are looked after only on the main roads whereas the town(I do not think it is a city)are the bylanes and the side roads which are totally ignored by the Corporation
