Hi there,

I have just received a job offer from one of the international schools in Pune. Salary is INR 200k per month plus 40k monthly housing allowance. Annual tickets home, health insurance etc. Tax will be paid by the school.

I know it's a fairly decent offer, but is it enough to support a family of four?

We are very excited about this opportunity to explore India and would love to be able to travel to many places...

As the school is situated in the Hinjewadi IT Park, we have been looking at houses for rent in Aundh, Baner and Wakad. Is it true that there are different rents for locals and expats? Any suggestions of other residential areas not too far from Hinjewadi? What kind of accommodation would we get for INR 40k per month?

Many thanks in advance for any piece of advice!

Jay ho

I don't know the new areas of Pune too well so locals will be able to advise you better. What I can tell you is that there is no difference in price for renting to a local or to an expat. Any information that tells you otherwise is incorrect. Certainly, some very high-end places will only be taken by foreign companies to attract their employees to move to India, and local companies may not pay as much for their local employees for these. Against the high cost, you will get better facilities and ambience.

I would suggest that Rs.40,000 to Rs.70,000 may be your ball park figure for a fine place for a family of four. That would mean digging into your salary partly towards the rent. But the salary on offer is a generous package for Pune. The cost of living is reasonable compared to Bombay, Delhi and Bangalore.

Many thanks, vishva! We are planning to visit Pune for a couple days in April. The school has offered to hook us up with some real estate agents to show us a few properties, but I wanted to be somewhat prepared before we get there, so your info is quite helpful.

Good scene. Hopefully some of the local Pune folk will chime in when they awake later and give you advice from the ground. Good luck, and welcome to IndiaMike

Missed this thread.

Well you could try Park Street in Wakad. A pretty upmarket society and houses lots of expats. Should fit into your 40k budget. May have to shell out a bit more but you'd be able to negotiate that. Close to Hinjewadi and Aundh so you'd be easily accessible to things to do on the weekend etc.

The society itself is large with a huge play area for kids. In fact they have a school on the same premises.
