I have a 55,250 INR as monthly salary. I have a 4 member family. Our expense for food per month is just 9000 INR. Expenses for education to children is about 6000 INR. All other expenses can limited to 5000 INR. If any more spending more is for luxury. I am very happy and comfortable in Thiruvananthapuram.
