Dear All,

My age is 26 and I have got a job in Ponda, Goa so I am planning to shift there. But I am not aware about the place at all neither do i have any idea about the Cost of Living over there. If anyone here could suggest me how to make my way searching for a good house or a PG. I am a vegetarian by diet but do occassionaly have non-veg food. Plz let me know what would be my approx. Cost of Living for a month there (including rent, electricity & food). Anyone willing to help more then this is surely welcome.

Hi Chetan

Here is a link (and your homework) to make you an expert on PONDA and perhaps the first thing you should do is to go to the "Ponda on Map" and print the Ponda map.

Ponda in Goa is the heartland of the Hindu culture in Goa and there should be no problem finding vegetarian meals in Ponda and there are some 33 restaurants mentioned on this Ponda city site. Restaurant staff would also be a good source of information for accomodation in Ponda.

Also try contacting "Rental Homes" under "Estate-Agents" for some accomodation help.

But, for arranging longterm budget accomodation in Ponda you will really need to be in Ponda to inspect the accomodation and negotiate your rental arrangements with the landlord.

You could ask your employer to arrange some accomodation for a few days, perhaps a hotel room for a week to give you some time to settle in your job and then to look around Ponda for suitable longterm accomodation.

About cost of living for a month in Ponda, I will make a rough guess that you will probably need to spend at least Rs 5000/month for a very basic accomodation and will likely need another Rs 5000 for food and other expenses.

Good Luck and congratulations on getting a job in the very popular and lovely state of Goa.
