It’s a beautiful city, but to should make sure you use public transport as the pollution keeps on increasing, and it has the best food with cheap living facilities, also they must know that, it has the best educational facilities and is best all over in the country when it comes to pune.

We come from a country where the culture, the language, and even the food habits change every 250 Kilometers. Pune, one of the most crowded cities in the state of Maharashtra, is known for its rich Marathi culture. Known as the land of the Peshwas, if you are moving to Pune, start learning the Marathi language. Although you will find two out of five people talking in Hindi, Marathi will help you reach out to and converse with the people from all classes, especially while going over daily chores; these are the local shopkeepers, vegetable and fruit vendors, house helps, and people you meet while traveling via local transport (such as buses and auto rickshaws). No matter what your food habits are, you will find all varieties of food in Pune. If you are looking for accommodation that fits in your budget, Pune is the place for you. Being a big city, Pune’s accessibility to the rest of India and its geographic closeness to Mumbai is an added advantage. It will simplify the travel process and ease the travel time for you, no matter which part of India you come from. With top healthcare facilities, Pune will enable you to take care of yourself and have a great quality of life.

It is important to know eastern Pune is cheaper than western Pune. However, IT hubs and industrial units are spread across Western Pune. If an avid traveler, one should always consider the proximity to Mumbai while selecting the place or buy home. Schools and hospitals are nicely spread and you can avail all benefits independent of the location.

The city I reside in as of now is Pune. Excellent weather, world class education along with affordable affordable living costs make it as a perfect option to move in. The IT sector is well developed with a lot of tech giants such as Accenture, TCS and Infosys have their regional head Offices in the city.

Pune has been the education hub of Maharashtra for a long time hence you will find shops and malls filled with young crowd everywhere. Pune comes close third after Bangalore and Chennai in terms of housing the size of IT population. you will see lots of 22 – 40 year olds everywhere swamping the city. Because of which some parts of pune are expensive like Aundh, Baner, etc.

Pune is the Oxford of the East, and with good reason. The city has several prestigious institutions of higher education; Pune University, Ambedkar College and Fergusson College are names that leap naturally to mind. Housing, while rather tight, is considerably less expensive than in the other metropolises of the country. Recent years have seen suburban housing projects grow rapidly, making Pune an attractive destination for a prospective homeowner.

If you’re moving here know it’s expensive to live here. You’ll need a high budget to survive, but don’t be worried you’ll enjoy the nightlife here and the people are very friendly and helpful. You can even stay alone or with a partner at a decent place and party hard.

Sushanth, says: 2020

there are very few quiet places in my city. The rent differs from one area to the other, although, the places with the lowest rent are farthest from public transportation and good restaurants, delivery services or hospitals. My city is in a geographic area where it is not too hot during summers and not too cold during winters. it also rains adequately and spring as a distinct season does not occur.

Aayushi, says: 2020

Pune is safe for everyone, has a good climate year-round, has a lot of IT companies. Food and stay is also cheap in Pune. People are kind and generous. Pune is a good place where you have a mixture of cultures and people are safe and sound here. Pune has good nightlife to be enjoyed for the youngsters.

Jedson, says: 2020

Pune is an IT HUB and a very beautiful place to stay and explore. at the same time the cost of living is high. Around Pune there are many tourist places to visit so your weekends are sorted.

Ayesha, says: 2020

Pune is very beautiful and calm city with lot much historical and cultural background. Depending on the areas, the cost of living differs. Traffic conditions are not up to the mark. Knowing local language i.e., Marathi will help a lot. There are different educational institutes which can help in acquiring knowledge from different streams.

The cost of living in the city is costly compared to other two tier cities and the climate is not really favorable for the people coming from the north of the country as it is not that pleasant for everyone. If you are willing to make things work out than there is nothing as such to stop you from achieving your desired goals.

Pune is the cultural capital of Maharashtra. Almost every festival is celebrated here but this city will leave you awestruck once Ganesh Chaturthi arrives. Pune is green and clean compared to other cosmopolitan cities. Well I cannot say that Pune is cost-effective but way cheaper than Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi.

Rajalaxmi, says: 2020

The public transport is ridiculously expensive and not easily available. The rainy season is going to suck big time if you hate rains. It’s a continuous non-stop drizzle. Umbrellas- can’t do with them, can’t do without them. However, the climate throughout the year is otherwise pretty pleasant. If you’re a fan of scenic beauty, you’re born for Pune, especially if you like trekking.
