Generally, the cost of living varies from individual budgets and lifestyles, even further differential in one city to another.
The real problem in India is finding medium-term accommodation. That’s because long-term rentals often require an advance 10-month payment, which is a problem if you’re only staying for 3 months. Below are some of the prices for accommodation in India:
$600/month for 1 bedroom in a semi-serviced apartment in the heart of Bangalore
$200-300/month for a 1-bedroom furnished apartment without Internet in Delhi
$5-15/night for an average hotel room in most Indian cities
As low as $2/night for cheap rooms in smaller cities and towns
Public Transportation The main means of transportation in New Delhi are the government buses (DTC – Delhi Transport Corporation), Blue Line buses (or private), and metro.
Ticket fares between AC and non-AC buses do not differ greatly and both are overall pretty cheap. If you travel in a non-AC bus up to 4km you will pay about $0.10 ($0.22 for AC bus), from 10 to 4km travel the ticket costs $0.22 ($0.33 for AC bus), and for longer distances, the cost will be about $0.33 (respectively $0.44 for air-conditioned one).
You can also buy the daily Green Car which can be used on all DTC buses. The price is 0.90 or 1.10 for AC or non-AC bus. A tourist sightseeing bus is also available. It is air-conditioned. The fare for adults is $4.50 and for children (up to 12) – $2.20.

All ex-pats moving to India should ensure that they have adequate health insurance coverage. Working ex-pats might have insurance provided by their employer, but it's important to keep in mind that some policies will only cover treatment at certain hospitals.
Expats should investigate the terms of their given policy and make sure they understand what it covers. If there are limitations to the cover offered, consider paying extra for a more comprehensive policy.
Some international insurance providers may not be recognized by Indian hospitals, and in these cases, ex-pats will have to pay cash out of pocket. If this does happen, keeping all the necessary paperwork is essential if they want to be reimbursed by their insurer.
