Hi I am planning on moving to Mumbai in August. I have been offered a job in a private school with an annual salary of $25000, accomodation is provided by the school. Is this a good wage, what is the average wage of a teacher and is this enough to live comfortably?
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

USD 25000 Annual salary equals to more than $2000 per month.Even if I value a dollar as rs 45, the salary turns out to be more than $ 90,000 per month.I feel this is a fabulous salary. I am a software enginner and would love to quit my job and join the same school..Which school is this by the way.Are you mentioning a college or school only.

Welcome to IndiaMike, poppet1! Wow, 25000USD is a large salary. That is a lot in rupees in India. Add in free accommodations, and that is a sweet deal. Congrats.

While USD 25000 is a large salary for a school teacher in India, Private schools are known to offer good salaries to teachers. What makes the deal sweeter is housing/accomodation in of all places in Mumbai.

However we don't know what special skillsets/qualifications/experience the OP is bringing. Also the school might not be completely oblivious to the new E visa rules as well and has offered what is the minimum to get an E visa.

Welcome to the forum and hope you take up the assignment not just for the salary, but to also experience all that this new job might bring with it in opportunities and challenges.

hmmm well that's great thanks for all your help but I remain dubious, what if it was 25000rs? Would that be enough to live on? It is a newly set up private school, they have quoted me that figure but as I say Im not sure if it's correct.
Anyway Narendra.d thanks for your words of encouragement and I am so excited about the new experience.
If anyone has any further information about moving to mumbai I would be very grateful eg cost of traveling around the country etc.
Thanks again

You better get that clarified asap. 25000 USD/Year is good, 25000 INR/Month in Mumbai is not enough or just about bare minimum to get along.

Explore the Moving to Mumbai sub forum. A lot of talk about rents/leases in various areas and what it is like.

Make sure to sign a real contract stating your salary before coming to India since you are not sure about the terms.

Can I ask, are you hired to teach Spanish at a private school? (Just guessing because you are from Madrid) That's quite a good salary - my dream is to move to India permanently and teach English, but they rarely hire (salary) foreigners to teach English in India. Woe to me!

Hi candycane girl, No it is a british curriculum school that has hired me. I am a primary teacher and am from the UK, I am just working in the international school in Madrid at the moment.
Will defo not be going until contracts are signed!
What is your profession?
Kind regards

I find it hard to believe that any teacher in any school in India would earn nearly 1 lakh rupees a month --- not even in one of the posh international schools that charges the parents really, really crazy fees. Rs25,000 a month, on the other hand, sounds realistic. Of course, I know nothing about Mumbai.

Ok so if 25,000 rupees is more realistic, is it enough to live on if my accomodation is provided?
I know I sound clueless regarding this, I am. I am waiting for them to clarify!! and waiting and waiting!!!
Thanks
