If you planning on moving to Mumbai? It has become India’s most important business centre and any expats moving there will find the city has plenty to recommend it. It is culturally and commercially vibrant, with plenty going on.
Sadly, India’s massive wealth gap is also very visible in Mumbai, some of the richest people live in luxury next to the poorest slums and this can be disturbing to see. There is a high demand for experienced foreign workers in areas such as IT, telecommunications and financial services.

Buying a property in Mumbai is not an easy process and is often hindered by fraud, corruption and bribery. Once you have found a property, you would be strongly advised to use a trustworthy real estate lawyer to guide you through the process.
