House Removals to Mumbai: An Overview
Mumbai or (Bombay its official name up until 1995) lies in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is a heavily populated city; the last estimate was 12.4 million. Many thousands of British expatriates live in the City known locally as the Manhattan of the East. Recent UK government statistics have reported that migration to South Asia is up by over 100% over the past five years and that trend looks set to continue. Business in booming and is attractive for those seeking good employment opportunities.
As with many cities, the cost of living is higher the closer you get to the centre. Property, leisure and shopping are all costlier. On the plus side, the city never sleeps. You can buy anything at any time of the day or night, it is a real cosmopolitan metropolis. There is no need to learn the local language because practically everyone speaks English. Generally, most people have a maid and a chauffeur, you don’t need to earn a fortune as this type of employment is very inexpensive. Other plusses are that there are extremely good schools for expat children and top quality medical treatment. The Indian people are generally very warm and friendly. On the down side, the traffic is terrible, the road incredibly busy and local public transport (apart from trains) are crowded and unreliable.
