I'd appreciate any input about renting/living in Gurgaon and/or Noida. How do these two towns differ? Also, what would be the travelling time between them?

Many thanks.

Comparison between Noida and Gurgaon has been made in a few threads..if you search you will find a lot of information.
The travel time is anything between 1-1.5 hours and its not a great drive.

Perhaps you would like to decide where you are going to be spending most of your time...and then chose between the two.
You can take a man out of India, but you can never take India out of a man!

Probably 50% Gurgaon and 50% Noida (each week).

I've been searching through the forum and so far have found Gurgaon described as "full of malls", "soulless" and like "Beverly Hills"; and Noida described as "full of malls", "happenin'" and having problems with water and electricity.

I wonder how people would rate one town over the other in terms of infrastructure and general desirability of surroundings?

If that is the case then you should forget about both of them and settle in South Delhi..From there both these places would be almost equidistant and would save a lot of trouble for you...

Definately South Delhi..I live in Gurgaon, only know Noida for its clubs and lounges. I'd rather live in S Delhi but I am in the office so much that Gurgaon makes more sense

As suggested by all stick to south delhi...I live in noida and my aunt in gurgaon...i know the trouble driving down and meeting up the family every month.....

Both the suburbs have there own set of problems...and south delhi will also have but its better to stay at a place thats in between

As everybody is suggesting ....just think about South Delhi...

Areas like Green Park, Sainik Farms and South Ex will give you good budsget options....a studio flat in the range of USD 300-500...

If budget is a problem you can consider Mayur Vihar or IP extension but Gurgaon is a long drive from there...

So considering travel cost and renting cost...South Delhi is the best place to be in

No sainik farms...its more of trouble than any luxury.....and neither mayur vihar or IP extesnion too closer to noida nd too far from gurgaon...

What is it with Sainik Farms? I've read that there are lovely properties there, but that the buildings are all illegal!!??

Sainik farms is in trouble more often then not..constructions are unauthorized and every now and then government demolishes some structures over there...

Sainik farms is made up on agricultural land....therefore illegal...with stay from delhi high court no more constructions are allowed...even the latest HC order made up residents to lower the boundary wall....less patrolling by delhi police makes it even worse....

Btw i forgot to add....the locality definitely has some lovely properties.....

Noida is in UP and I think Gurgaon is in Haryana. Haryana seems to be a much better run state, if that matters.

I have never lived in either Gurgaon or Noida but work in Gurgaon. However, my advice would be the same as others on this forum - opt for South Delhi where you can commute between the two places.
