Should I move to Bangalore from Pune due to the demand for my job?

Should I move to Bangalore from Pune due to the demand for my job?

If I were in your place, I would not move from my place of origin for work reasons. I'd rather stay behind and seize the first opportunity that comes my way in my home country and not worry too much about the pros and cons of moving to a new place. But it is my very personal opinion. I am not suggesting you do the same, but during these difficult times it is better to stay where you have people to take care of you rather than struggle in a new place where accessibility to familiar people could be a challenge. Especially during these difficult times, you never know when you might need help.

If I were in your place, I would not move from my place of origin for work reasons. I'd rather stay behind and seize the first opportunity that comes my way in my home country and not worry too much about the pros and cons of moving to a new place. But it is my very personal opinion. I am not suggesting you do the same, but during these difficult times it is better to stay where you have people to take care of you rather than struggle in a new place where accessibility to familiar people could be a challenge. Especially during these tough times, you never know when you might need a helping hand at your convenience. All the best.

Pune and Bangalore are well connected by rail and air, you will find a kind of civic conveniences in Bangalore and since Bangalore is a mega metro, you will find people from all over India so language is not a barrier, education and Health facilities are on par with work, so you may consider moving to Bangalore if your job requires it

This is always my favorite question. I think I am in the right place to answer this because I lived in both cities. You might find a little biased answer towards Pune, but this is what my personal point of view is based on a few facts and different factors in the average lifestyle of Indian people.
1. First starting from accommodation: finding apartments in Pune is relatively very easy and you can easily get a decent apartment in 10-15k in Pune in nice localities where finding an apartment in Bangalore is very difficult as there are not many affordable apartments in Bangalore and you always have to be ready w

This is always my favorite question. I think I am in the right place to answer this because I lived in both cities. You might find a little biased answer towards Pune, but this is what my personal point of view is based on a few facts and different factors in the average lifestyle of Indian people.
1. First starting from accommodation: Finding apartments in Pune is relatively very easy and you can easily get a decent apartment in 10-15k in Pune in nice localities where finding an apartment in Bangalore is very difficult as there are not many affordable apartments in Bangalore and you always have to be prepared with * 10 rent as a deposit. If you are from North India, God bless you. At the same price, you cannot get a location like the one you can get in Pune. And there are still water problems and power outages in many areas of Bangalore. Most IT people are saturated in certain areas and those areas are very expensive compared to the standard of living. If you are willing to travel 2 hours every day, you will find an apartment in the 10-15k range
2. Transportation: Bangalore has excellent city bus transportation, but most professional programs travel by air-conditioned buses and those tickets are very expensive. But the traffic in Bangalore screwed up. Most of the roads are so narrow. Bangkok does not have big roads like Mumbai and Delhi, except for the outer ring road. Even Pune has decent sized roads. Having more buses is a disadvantage sometimes because it hardly leaves room for other vehicles. on the highway AND it still takes 1.5-2 more hours to get from one end of the city to the other during office hours. Literally during office hours, we have waited more than 30 minutes at a traffic light in Bangalore. Where, as in Pune, you definitely need to have your own bike. There are many shortcuts in the city of Pune and you can easily reach the other end in 30-45 minutes if you know the city well. Some roads are really narrow in both cities. But Pune is much easier to navigate if you have a bike. Also keep in mind that Pune has the worst drivers in the country. No discipline at all. Especially cyclists.
3. Food - Honestly, restaurants in Bangalore have good atmosphere, but good taste? Sorry, but Pune has an advantage here. Awesome street food, homey sweets, Marathi dishes from North India. Even the South Indian food in Pune is much better than in Bangalore. When it comes to bars and clubs, Bangalore has an advantage, but not everyone goes to clubs every day. Restaurants are expensive in Bangalore and I didn't see many good street food options.
4. Opportunities: If you think in the field of software, Bangalore has an advantage in that it has more product-based companies than Pune does not. The service companies are the same in both cities. The startup ecosystem is better in Bangalore, but the competition is higher too. Where, as if considering the automotive and electronics sector, again Pune has advantages, as it is home to many multinational automotive companies such as Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, GM, Hyundai, TATA, FIAT, John Deere, Mahindra, etc. and many electronic giants like SAMSUNG, LG, Haier, 3M, whirlpool, EMERSON, etc. and many more
5. Education: both are equally good, but if we compare the number of universities in terms of population, the density in Pune is higher. Pune is considered an educational center.
Cost of living: Bangalore is more expensive than Pune. Whether it's apartment rentals, restaurant bills, bus / car shows, or shopping malls. There are cheaper areas in Bangalore, but IT professionals don't live there. Pune has metered car where like Bangalore you have to be ready with multiples of 60 if you want to rent a car
7. Weekend- .Bangalore doesn't have many options. Just the Nandi and Coorg hills, which is miles away. While Pune is surrounded by weekend destinations. Lonavala, Lavasa, matheran, Amber valley, khadkwasla, sinhgad name a few. Mumbai, Goa and the beaches are hours away by car. Concerts, Bollywood celebrities and other sports in addition to cricket continue to be held in Pune, while in Bangalore the frequency is less.
8. Nightlife - Bangalore is better but wait ... everything closes at 11.30: p It is difficult to enjoy the night. Most people spend their weekends only in the malls.
9.climate: both cities have a pleasant climate. Punta is a little hotter in summer and rainier because of the rains. There are never any water problems in Pune.
10. Cosmopolitan feel: Bangalore gives a more cosmopolitan feel, but in some areas only where IT people are saturated. At times, both Marathi and Kannada people act hostile towards outsiders. But if you are polite and respect the locals then you will have no problems. In Pune you will find class societies in every part of the city. It depends on how much you want to spend. The Marathis are more progressive and liberal than the Kannadigas.
11. Culture and festivals - I hardly saw any festival celebrations in Bangalore. Everything is always calm, while Pune is always vibrating during Ganpati, Dahi handi, Diwali and Navratri. International music and film festivals, celebrity events, etc. are often held in Pune. Pune is a young city and culturally the Pune crowd is more active. Be it a sunburn music festival or Ganpati Utsav, we have it all. But if you want corporate or startup events or summits, I saw them more in Bangalore.
12.Salaries: On average you will get 1-2 lakhs more in Bangalore compared to Pune, but it doesn't make much difference as it is more expensive
13. Infrastructure: Bangalore has better infrastructure. Larger airport, outer ring road gives advantage. Pune is still struggling to get better infrastructure. As it is not the capital, it is difficult for him to get funds where significant infrastructure funds are used for Mumbai. The upcoming international airport, the great outer ring road and the metro could change a lot and will make Pune on par with Hyderabad and Bangalore in terms of infrastructure. Politicians are unwilling to do so and continue to blame the other parties.
14. Shopping centers and multiplexes: both cities have the same number of shopping centers and multiplexes. But if we consider the population, Pune has more shopping centers.

15. Safety and security: both cities are equally safe and secure, except for a few minor events. The people of both cities are warm and welcoming. The crimes are much lower compared to the NCR region and most of the people are educated and liberal. Pune is friendlier to North Indians because there are other Hindi or North speaking people, students and communities in the city.

16. Growth potential: Bangalore has almost reached saturation point. IT growth has slowed. Water and traffic problems are a big concern for real estate growth in Bangalore, while Pune has just started to expand. The non-IT sector in Pune is driving growth. Pune has one of the best real estate markets in the country. Upcoming infrastructure projects could change the dynamics and Pune can easily grow to double in size in the next few years.

17. Water crisis: Bangalore is going through a severe writing crisis and the city will run out of groundwater in the next few years. Water is obtained through tanker trucks in many companies in Bangalore. Conditions are getting worse by the day. Where like Pune they hardly have any water problems. Pune is surrounded by multiple dams and there is a lot of water throughout the year.

18.There is nothing called Marathi Manoo culture that you should be scared of in Pune. The Marathi community is very friendly, progressive and hospitable. Some political parties like Shivsena and MNS never fully represented Marathi and always try to influence the people of Marathi to win a vote bank. But when you come to Maharashtra you will know that the people are very different from those presented by the political parties. Marathi people expect respect for their language and culture and, as if you were a professional, I think you can easily do that. There are thousands of UP Bihar and Northern professionals who have studied and settled in Maharashtra. People are helpful and friendly unless you create a threat by not respecting the locals. The same in Bangalore and with the people of Kannada as well or in any other state. If you are good, everything will be fine for you. Simple, give respect, take respect. Pune is a much better option to settle culturally, as it is close to the north and the language barrier is not a problem. The food is also North Indian style when compared to Bangalore. Ask any of your friends who live in Pune. The answers will always be positive. It has consistently been ranked as the second best place to live in India.

I am from Maharashtra, but I work in Bengaluru. I've stayed the same amount of time in both cities, so I think I'm a suitable verse with either one to answer the question.
I have taken into account the criteria that I would look for in a city that would make it ideal for me, as indicated below.

1. Weather: This is arguably the first impression you have of any city when you land / enter, and it holds for the long term. And since both Bengaluru and Pune boast the climate among their professionals, this should be a yardstick in which both should have a say.
The average temperature in Pune remains between 25-35 through deou

I am from Maharashtra, but I work in Bengaluru. I've stayed the same amount of time in both cities, so I think I'm a suitable verse with either one to answer the question.
I have taken into account the criteria that I would look for in a city that would make it ideal for me, as indicated below.

1. Weather: This is arguably the first impression you have of any city when you land / enter, and it holds for the long term. And since both Bengaluru and Pune boast the climate among their professionals, this should be a yardstick in which both should have a say.
The average temperature in Pune remains between 25-35 throughout the year, while in Bengaluru it is 22-32 on its worst days. Without a doubt, Bengaluru's climate is touted as the most favorable in the country and I think with good reason. People are in awe of him and his courtesy. However, Pune will come second.

Bangalore 1-0 Pune.

2. Food: The variety in catering and the leverage of the taste buds is highly regarded in my timeline of judging a city.
Pune has some luxurious dishes to offer; And the variety will leave you with an
interesting habit of experimenting, if you aren't already. The night poha, the katakirr missal, the Flavors chocolate toast, the omelettes and the biscuits from the Vohuman café are a must in Pune; Vada-pav has paralyzed the contest. This after considering foreign brands and imports from South India.
However, Bengaluru, given the myth of the quality and ability of the South Indians to do anything apart from their strengths, is actually true. The Empire restaurant stands out, but the thing is, you will get everything foreign (KFC, McD, faaso's etc), but nothing authentic and 'local'. The Momos here are a good imitation (read mockery) of Delhites' favorite Bengaluru snack. He never had a chance.

Bangalore 1-1 Pune.

3. Quality of life: it has the following categories:

a. Cost of Living: Bengaluru may well be the city for the rich in India, and since only 23% in India are "rich" rich, it is certainly not a strong point to have. The public transport network, while laudable, is very expensive compared to the other major cosmopolitans (eg Hyderabad).
Accommodation is also very expensive here, because to rent a flat here you have to pay 10-12 months of rent in advance, while in Pune it is about 3-4 months. However, the apartments will be furnished and may also have electronic devices. Property rates in
Bengaluru are unreliable and prices here will skyrocket and fall. In Pune, you can easily invest in Land and rest assured that economic growth is definite.
Pune has a very, very rich culture, which, unlike Bengaluru, is superlative. Bengaluru is an adopted capital and before independence or until the 1970s nobody knew
about Bengaluru. In 1973, when the 'State of Mysore' was renamed Karnataka, Bengaluru robbed Mysore of its capital rights. Bengaluru: Born and raised by YOU.
Pune is known to the world, since the time of Shivaji, since Pune was where the entire history of Maratha took place. There are palaces, forts, memories in Pune dating back about 3 centuries. There is a lot of pride in the heritage of the city.

B. Daily Commute: Bengaluru has one of the densest public bus services in India, it is very frequent and will take you all over the city. The entire City is connected and given the geography of this city, it is always a better option to use the city's Public Transport.
Pune has ridiculous public transportation and if you want to survive and savor this city in its glory, it is much more feasible and advisable to use your vehicle / car for city darshan. It has long been touted as a city lacking adequate public services and the Maharashtra government has done everything possible to address the problem of narrow roads within the main city. But ask any Bangalorian what he likes to get out of Bangalore, his
answer will be Traffic. The scaling centimeter by centimeter in the tin factory, to the exhausting traffic jam at Sony Signal!
Although, the quality of the metro is to be applauded in Bengaluru, although it is currently only present on a couple of low-key routes, it will definitely take over.

c: Opportunities: when I speak of opportunities, it points to the Career, but I will start from the education itself. The University of Pune is in the top 5 in the country and is the best. Be it journalism, media, foreign languages, the rarest of courses, you will find the perfect course here, to pursue a career in your passion. The universities here are very well known and well managed as well. Students from all over the
country come here not only to enjoy their graduation, but also to find the best career path.
Bengaluru University is a very mediocre brand in universities. The supply is much higher here than the demand and therefore the seats are left empty, often to complaints from the local government. I never heard that the education in Bengaluru is adequate and also the quality of the education, although perhaps better than most
Indian universities, it has no chance against the University of Pune.
Pune is a huge manufacturing sector as well as a renowned IT hub in the country. Job opportunities are not only diverse and varied, but also stable and exciting. Multinationals flock here like birds, including IT, but the manufacturing sector gives it the edge over Bengaluru, which is predominantly ONLY IT. As an IT professional, you
You won't find a better city to grow in, but the opportunities here are exceptionally limited, other than IT. IIM, and a very very special one is the only thing I think education in Bengaluru represents.
After the IT industry, the Paying Guest (PG) industry is the most flourishing industry in Bengaluru.

d: Entertainment - This is the most debatable part of the Comparison, as the entertainment factor varies from person to person. Therefore, I will try to write what I think counts as entertainment and also try to incorporate variation.
If you are looking for a night out with friends / family / partner in Pune, plans will include shopping, food, exquisite places like Amanora or man-made cities like Lavasa and Maggarpatta. For friends, there may be Khadakwasla Dam, Sinhagad Fort and many other places. Countless basketball courts, swimming pools add a lot of quality in entertainment and varied entertainment in that regard. For others they
have museums and parks galore. Pune has the complete package, well, almost. South Indians are very careful about nightlife, therefore the nightlife in Bangalore is zero, absolutely zero. Public transportation stops at 10:30 p.m. M. And Ola's taxis are the only way to get home after clubbing. ;)
In Bengaluru, you will have a hard time finding where you can go and spend a moment of your life, or a moment of peace with yourself, but that is only if you are completely broke.
Fortunately, in need of the hour, the municipality acted on this and now has the Rangoli Metro Art center and Ulsoor lake and Lumbini park, (Bengaluru). Visvesaraya science is unique in all of India. The National Park and Planetarium are one step above Pune, while Imagica and Wonderla cancel each other out.
The weekend getaways in Pune are the same and coincide with Bengaluru step by step I think. Khandala-Lonavala is Ooty-Coorg here. The proximity to Mumbai is the proximity to Kerala in Bengaluru. If the beach is less than 200 kms from Pune to Alibaug, Bengaluru has west coast and east coast beaches within a 6 hour drive on both sides of the peninsula.
The shopping malls in Bengaluru are a class above the rest. The Market City of Phoenix is ​​arguably the best shopping center in Pune, where it ranks third after Orion and UB City in Bengaluru. The Brigade Roads, Indira Nagars and Koramangalas are a haven for party lovers and brand fans. The nickname "India's Pub City" bodes well for Bengaluru, and rightly so.
For a mall in Pune, Bengaluru has 3.
For a Koregaon Park in Pune, Bengaluru has good, 3.
Bengaluru has two Imax'es, Pune has Imax in Cinépolis, Aundh.
If Pune is the Detroit of the East, Bengaluru is almost Las Vegas!

Bengaluru beats Pune Dry Blue in quality of life: Bengaluru 2-1 Pune.

4. People: The most intense interaction and the biggest adoption if you are new to a city, is the people of and in the city. The Hindi-speaking population is of course higher in Pune, comparatively. Bangalore even has the local population speaking English, even the police. But the Bengaluru government authorities are totally rude and lazy, they are the worst I have come across in a long, long time. Traffic rules are strict, and most cops, while they take bribes, will at least make an
effort to catch you if they are found guilty.
Most of the street vendors and vendors in Bengaluru have made Bengaluru their adopted home, like the momos and gupchup / panipuri waale.
The local Bengaluru population will at least make an effort to learn Hindi and speak to you in Hindi, although whatever happened to the Manipuri student in October will have many questioning his tolerance.
The people of Pune are not among the most polite and friendly in the state of Maharashtra, but they are definitely helpful and sometimes they go out of their way.
The government authorities in Pune are much better than those in Bengaluru.

Bangalore 2-2 Pune.

Bangalorians' fashion sense is too good.
Some areas of Bengaluru feel like you are wandering around Goa.
The picturesque Kempegowda International Airport is simply majestic.
Let's not talk about the Pune airport. : D
Bengaluru has an IPL team.
Bengaluru has a movie city.
Pune has Sharad pawar, Bengaluru does not. : P
Pune is the city of chocolate.
Pune has better places to buy random daily clothes MG road, FC Road, Clover Center,
etc.
Bengaluru has a sunburn, Pune does not; they both have NH7 Weekenders.
The rains in Bangalore are amazing!
The Drummers of Bengaluru are amazing, the Pune Dhol in Pune is awesome.
Pune Ganpati festival is amazing, Bengaluru festivals suck!
Pune has an Enfield gang, Bengaluru has a Porsche gang!

Enough talk. The two cities are totally comparative to each other, but overall, I think Bengaluru is Pune's older brother. Pune is likely to be on par with Bengaluru in the next decade, but we can only speculate where Bengaluru might be at the time.
There is no saturation in Bengaluru geographically, so anything is a possibility here.

From the 10th to the 21st of your life, it has to be Pune.
From 21 to 45 of your life, Bengaluru is perfect.
From the age of 45, just relax in Pune.

Whatever your thoughts, no one can disagree that these two are the 2 best cities for young people in India.

My friend Shyam Biradar was right.

I would suggest Pune if:

  1. You are from the north and will explore for the first time.
  2. You are very picky about the type of words that are used about India (for example, there will be National Anthem before the start of any movie, at any time and Punekars has the notorious extent of hitting people who disrespect the country) .
  3. Water Wars & Bandhs are not your thing
  4. You are a strong supporter of unions, workers' rights, etc. (throughout South India, you will find this case only in Kerala)
  5. You are fond of culture (Pune is considered the Cultural Capitol

  3. Water Wars & Bandhs are not your thing
  4. You are a strong supporter of unions, workers' rights, etc. (throughout South India, you will find this case only in Kerala)
  5. You like culture (Pune is considered to be the cultural capital of Maharashtra)
  6. He likes walks, cool places, and strong ones.
  7. Likes hill stations (Pune has more hill stations nearby, compared to Bangalore)
  8. Likes pollution in manufacturing (Pune's industrial corridors generate more pollution compared to Bangalore)
  9. You love Pav (round bread) and the possible varieties in which it can be used.
  10. You love education (Pune is considered to be Oxford of the East. The University of Pune has the second highest number of affiliated universities in India, only after Osmania University, Hyderabad)
  11. You love Law. (Pune is good for law education and most famous for breaking the law. You can never find a real Punekar wearing a helmet, although they are willing to pay the fine as many times as necessary).
  12. You enjoy watching Crime Stories (Pune can be considered among the top 5 cities in Maharashtra where the average crime rate is growing with a special focus on chain kidnappings, extortion, contract killings, rapes, etc.)
  13. You want a cosmopolitan culture in relatively half the size of a meter
  14. You are tired of your hair and styling and grooming and plan to remove it for life in 10 years (Pune water has relatively more fluoride, which will make the stranger bald, for sure)
  15. You cannot walk at least 5 minutes to see a hairdresser, twice a week (there are a minimum of 3-4 hairdressers in a lane, for sure)
  16. You want to look at how politics is done at the grassroots level (you can see roughly 60% political billboards even during non-election days and have seen people sell their property to invest in politics. South Indian culture is different, sure on this)
  17. You also dream of becoming a millionaire overnight, doing nothing.
  18. You are a frequent user of the airport facilities, for your daily commute (Bangalore airport is about 65 km from the city, while Pune is easily accessible in a relatively small airport)
  19. You prefer the manufacturing economy and the agricultural economy to dominate the markets (BLR is an economy based on services and tourism at 75% to 85%)
  20. You prefer the old ways of protesting on some random topic (BLR innovates on this too ..)

I hope I have given you enough things to make a decision about Pune or Bangalore.

By working in both cities, I can give an unbiased answer.

Climate:

  1. Bengaluru is the best, everything is normal in summer or winter.
  2. Pune is like an extreme in everything, in summer the temperature reaches 38+ and in the rainy season it rains much more and in winter it is also colder.

Transport:

  1. Bengaluru has the best connectivity with BMTC, Metros and other services.
  2. Pune has PMPL buses that are overcrowded and the buses are in poor condition, alternative on MetroZip that is costly and time-based.

JOB:

  1. Bengaluru has huge opportunities compared to these IT companies and startups.
  2. Pune is delayed due to Mu

Transport:

  1. Bengaluru has the best connectivity with BMTC, Metros and other services.
  2. Pune has PMPL buses that are overcrowded and the buses are in poor condition, alternative on MetroZip that is costly and time-based.

JOB:

  1. Bengaluru has huge opportunities compared to these IT companies and startups.
  2. Pune is left behind because Mumbai is attracting attention.

Water:

  1. Pune tops here, the Mula river that runs through Pune is the best and the water crisis is comparatively less.
  2. Bengaluru, although Kaveri's water supply exists, there are always problems in non-BBMP areas that rely on tanker trucks.

Cost of living:

  1. It's Pune again, apartment rents are lower, food and vegetable prices are cheap too.
  2. Bengaluru is a bit higher compared to Pune, but the options are more here.

Sightseeing:

  1. Pune is one of the best you can think of in sightseeing, you can get tourist spots every 10 km.
  2. Bengaluru, everyone who enters first visits Nandi Hills and there are not many options like in Pune.

Localites:

  1. Bengaluru people don't get too upset until someone provokes them and they like to help in all the languages ​​they know.
  2. The people of Pune are great and one should speak in Marathi or Hindi. (This is my experience and stop judging)

Western lifestyle:

  1. You should consider only Bengaluru.

Meal:

  1. Bengaluru has a wide variety of options and one can find almost everything, the best are authentic local destinations like MTR, Vidhyarthi Bhavan, CTR, VV Puram.
  2. Pune has very limited options comparatively, I like to visit the bakeries of the Iranian cafes and Kayani for cookies / cakes.

Conclusion: Consider based on your interests.

Pune: adventurer, nature lover, photography, savings, hiker.

Bengaluru: career oriented, western lifestyle, frequent job changes, foodie, hobbyist.

Pune is better because Bangalore is already saturated and bloated and bursting through its seams. I have serious doubts that the city will be able to sustain itself in 10 years. And there are several things that indicate this

Air port and public transportation:
There was a large backlog with the Bangalore International Airport. But it only ended in a huge disappointment. From the time it takes to get there, waiting in the different queues to board it is a total nightmare. At night taking a taxi is pure chaos.

Friday nights and weekends, the whole city goes into chaos due to the movement of the population.

Pune is better because Bangalore is already saturated and bloated and bursting through its seams. I have serious doubts that the city will be able to sustain itself in 10 years. And there are several things that indicate this

Air port and public transportation:
There was a large backlog with the Bangalore International Airport. But it only ended in a huge disappointment. From the time it takes to get there, waiting in the different queues to board it is a total nightmare. At night taking a taxi is pure chaos.

On Friday nights and on weekends, the entire city falls into chaos due to the movement of the population. The silk board, the old Madras road and all the routes in and out of the city get stuck.

Traffic congestion:
For the type of developments that the Bangalore corporation approves, you hardly think of improving road and public transportation facilities. In my area alone, several large apartments are being built, but the main road is still 60 feet. Once the projects are finished, we all know what happens, the corporation will not be able to expand the highway due to business on the highway and there goes its vicious cycle.

All the talk about privatization becomes absurd, because private contractors hardly maintain the road, they show roads built for Rs 10K crore but hardly do it for Rs 1K crore. Most of them are political cronies and lobbyists who cannot be touched.

Water:
Groundwater is drying up faster than it is being replenished in most areas due to large projects. Kaveri water is still a dream in several areas and those areas that get it became a joke. My house receives supplies once a week and it can barely last a day.

Considering the past performance of Bangalore Corporation, I seriously doubt the future of Bangalore.

My answer would definitely be Bangalore.

This is because Bangalore is already a major IT hub. There are countless opportunities available in the city. Almost all major multinational companies are based in India in Bangalore. Even Apple will soon start its Indian operations in Bangalore. There is also a great availability of technology jobs in financial institutions or consulting firms, and many companies such as Goldman Sachs and Ernst and Young have their offices in Bangalore.

Bangalore is also one of the best locations for engineering colleges in the country. This has led to the rise of Ban

My answer would definitely be Bangalore.

This is because Bangalore is already a major IT hub. There are countless opportunities available in the city. Almost all major multinational companies are based in India in Bangalore. Even Apple will soon start its Indian operations in Bangalore. There is also a great availability of technology jobs in financial institutions or consulting firms, and many companies such as Goldman Sachs and Ernst and Young have their offices in Bangalore.

Bangalore is also one of the best locations for engineering colleges in the country. This has led to the rise of Bangalore to become the initial capital of the city. There are so many people who have started their home offices and now in every corner you can find one or another technology company that is starting.

Compared to a city like Mumbai, the cost of living is much less expensive and PG or affordable apartments can be found. Furthermore, with the Namma Metro already started and the extensive work being done to complete it, soon not even transportation will be a problem.

Pune has emerged in terms of IT job availability in recent years, but I would definitely say that Bangalore is a better option as it is already established as India's Silicon Valley, and here your options would be limitless.

I am someone on the reverse of the spectrum of this question. I had my share of the fee to live in Pune and being from Maharashtra Pune was the destination at least 4-5 times a year from childhood and then a full two year stay there. Then came Delhi, Chennai and finally Bangalore.

Take Delhi and Chennai out of the equation, Pune and Bengaluru are like twin brothers, only they speak a different language. Believe me or not, nothing changes much.

Cost of living: both are quite expensive, even Delhi is a bit cheaper than these two cities

I am someone on the reverse of the spectrum of this question. I had my share of the fee to live in Pune and being from Maharashtra Pune was the destination at least 4-5 times a year from childhood and then a full two year stay there. Then came Delhi, Chennai and finally Bangalore.

Take Delhi and Chennai out of the equation, Pune and Bengaluru are like twin brothers, only they speak a different language. Believe me or not, nothing changes much.

Cost of living: both are quite expensive, even Delhi is a bit cheaper than these two cities

Transportation: Compared to Mumbai or Chennai, the suburban network in Bengaluru is non-existent. Don't even bring Delhi here. But Pune is a textbook example of how bad a city's public transportation can be. Bengaluru has better bus connectivity

Traffic: It should be a nationwide debate on which city has the worst traffic, Pune or Bengaluru. In Bengaluru, the traffic police are much more active and the strict implementation of helmates for two-wheelers is appreciated. Pune is full of idot motorcyclists and idiot rikshaw drivers.

Culture: Pune is the cultural center of Maharashtra and that is reflected in all aspects of a Punekar's life, Bengaluru is more culturally mordenized and metropolitan.

Nightlife: They both have a decent nightlife, but in Pune afternoons are for little naps, there is no excuse.

Women's safety: Pune has better statistics in terms of women's safety. Bengaluru is pretty safe too, but Pune has a better track record overall

Education: Pune has several universities and colleges with a great tradition. Bengaluru is nothing short of off.

Weather: Bengaluru still has bearable summers, Pune is getting hotter and hotter year after year.

People: People are generally helpful in both cities. Personally, I had not witnessed any problems in both cities. It also depends on many other factors, but people don't interfere much in your life in both cities.

I personally prefer Bengaluru to Pune because it is the most common place in this country, but Pune is just as lively and lively.

Mumbai is a very expensive place in general.

Real Estate: Don't think twice! More expensive in India even in the suburbs. Unless you are rich or have a lot of black money, you cannot buy a decent flat in the Mumbai boroughs for sure.

Electricity: Tariff slabs are very expensive compared to, for example, Tamil Nadu.

Local bus services: They are on par with other metropolitan cities, although they are not expensive.

Local train: the fare is maintained by the central government and the fares are the same in India. No special mention.

Mumbai is a very expensive place in general.

Real Estate: Don't think twice! More expensive in India even in the suburbs. Unless you are rich or have a lot of black money, you cannot buy a decent flat in the Mumbai boroughs for sure.

Electricity: Tariff slabs are very expensive compared to, for example, Tamil Nadu.

Local bus services: They are on par with other metropolitan cities, although they are not expensive.

Local train: the fare is maintained by the central government and the fares are the same in India. No special mention.

Vegetables and fruits: a little cheaper compared to other metros if you buy in the local markets near the train or bus stations or in any specific market.

Street food: a little cheaper compared to other metros.

Dining restaurant: once again, very expensive compared to other metropolitan cities.

Textiles: Cheaper only if you are knowledgeable and good to bargain.

Hospitalization: It sure is very expensive. A typical OPD consultation can range from INR 200 to INR 500 in a good hospital in Bangalore or Chennai. But, the same hospital in Mumbai would start from INR 700.


The big advantage in Mumbai is obviously the "OPTIONS". You can even get some of the above for lower prices, but they are not decent. For example, you can also get an OPD consultation at INR 200, but the hospital will not look decent or the doctor may not be an MBBS or MD, etc.

If you are looking for a job in IT, the best place to stay is Roopena Agrahara (near Silk Board). The reasons for suggesting this place are:

1. Most of the newbies / job seekers stay here and exchange the interview related information (eg which companies are currently interviewing for, share call letters, location details etc etc .).

2. If you are from North India, you have many options for North Indian food.

3. You can get the right environment.

4. There are many PG options such as with food without food, etc.

Well, it totally depends on your taste and choice.

But being from Pune, I can suggest you go to Pune in 30k, Pune is a beautiful city along with all the facilities and some historical places which is an attraction, here you can find multiple companies to find a good job for you.

Even Banglore has its specialty, but I would suggest Pune.
