Which city, Bangalore or Pune, is good for a career in Finance?

I have lived in Pune for 4 years and have been living in Bangalore for the last 7 months. According to me, Bangalore is a place where you can find a large number of companies to start your career. In Pune, however, it is less. If there are more companies, your career becomes relatively easy.
So, I would suggest Bangalore over Pune.

It is totally up to you. India's Silicon Valley (Bangalore) has more jobs, it is an expensive place to live, but everyone should visit it at least once in their life. Comparatively, Pune is cheaper, you have a hard time getting a job, but everyone can easily settle here.

A2A ...

There are several factors that need to be considered before you can arrive at the answer:

Location: Pune is strategically located in Maharashtra, most major cities are 3-4 hours drive from Pune, while Mumbai is in a secluded corner (although well connected to the rest of the world). An hour (more or less) by car from Pune can take you to beautiful places like Lonavala, Lavasa, Mahabaleshwar, among others. Pune itself is situated on a plateau, amid many small hills that give the city a unique charm. Mumbai, on the other hand, is located along the coast, and

There are several factors that need to be considered before you can arrive at the answer:

Location: Pune is strategically located in Maharashtra, most major cities are 3-4 hours drive from Pune, while Mumbai is in a secluded corner (although well connected to the rest of the world). An hour (more or less) by car from Pune can take you to beautiful places like Lonavala, Lavasa, Mahabaleshwar, among others. Pune itself is situated on a plateau, amid many small hills that give the city a unique charm. Mumbai, on the other hand, is located along the coast, and is primarily a low-lying area, so it lacks natural beauty (there are beaches, but they are pathetic). Due to the ridiculously high population density, Mumbai is dirty, while Pune is comparatively greener and cleaner.

Age: I think Mumbai is more preferable to younger people as they love the fast pace, the many events and the challenging life that the city offers. Unlike that, older people love Pune for its comparatively calmer and more relaxed life and its cool climate.

Climate: Without a doubt, Pune scores here. It has a very pleasant climate for most of the year, unlike the irritating hot and humid climate of Mumbai. So if the weather is the criteria, Pune is definitely a better place to live than Mumbai.

Crowd: Mumbai is a cosmopolitan city, where people of different cultures, regions and religions, speaking different languages, live together in harmony. It is a spectacular display of unity in diversity. Despite the fact that Pune is catching up quickly, due to the boom in the information technology industry, most of Pune (especially the old town) is predominantly Marathi. In Mumbai, there are people who are very, very poor (50% of Mumbai lives in slums), and there are people who are very, very rich (Mumbai is home to most of India's billionaires) while the Most of Pune's population belongs to the middle class. . There can be no objective judgment on whether a cosmopolitan city is better than a non-cosmopolitan one, it depends on personal choice.

Cost of living: Mumbai has a very high cost of living. Real estate rates in Mumbai have skyrocketed over the years and buying a permanent home is now banned for the middle class. There are ridiculous stories of slums sold for millions of rupees! Even renting a house here will cost you dearly. So if you don't have a house in Mumbai anymore, your pocket is going to hurt like anything! Comparatively, Pune is much better. It is expanding in all four directions (as opposed to one in Mumbai) and there is a real estate boom in many areas, so it offers many options for affordable housing.

Means of transport: Mumbai has a hundred times better public transport than Pune. The local train network in Mumbai is very efficient, although it is very busy, and it is the best way to travel within the city. They run for almost 24 hours, providing seamless connectivity even in the most remote suburbs. The BEST bus service is also way ahead of its Pune compatriot, the PMPML, which sucks big. The auto rickshaw and taxi service in Mumbai is also much better than in Pune. Pune's rickshaw drivers are considered among the worst in the country, known for their mistakes and their habit of fleecing customers. The Mumbai ones are not holy, but they are better than the Pune ones (at least most of them don't fleece customers). What's more, Traveling at odd hours is almost impossible in Pune, unless you have your own vehicle. Long story short, Pune is great to live in if you have your own vehicle (that too, if you could cope with the lack of traffic sense), but if you intend to use public transport, Mumbai is much better. Even though there are a lot of people in Mumbai, which makes traveling by buses and trains a Herculean task at peak times, now with the upcoming Metro and Monorail, the load on the local trains and buses is definitely going to decrease.

Education, health and other facilities: I think that in this, both cities are more or less equal. Pune is considered an educational center, home to many important educational and research institutes such as FTII, IISER, IITM, NCL, ARDE, etc. Mumbai is also not far behind with institutes like IITB, TIFR, BARC, CBS, etc. cities have decent health care, shopping, dining and entertainment facilities.

Spirit: The indomitable spirit that Mumbaikars has is incomparable. Pune is not even close! Mumbaikars simply love their city, be it a shoeshine wallah, a taxi driver, or a millionaire businessman. There are many unique things in Mumbai that everyone admires. Everyone in the city helps others, which was particularly evident during the 2006 explosions and 2005 floods. Mumbaikars' hospitality and friendly demeanor (even with strangers) is something that the people of Pune do not have. Mumbai is also very safe for women. It is a dream city, the city of Bollywood, where everyone who works hard makes a fortune. Punekars lacks this kind of human spirit, which makes the city less colorful and rather boring.

So, considering the above, both cities seem to be even. As I said, there can be no objective answer to this question. It depends on the preferences of each individual. I was born and raised in Mumbai, and have been living in Pune for the past 5 years. Personally, I like Mumbai better. Maybe it's because I've spent most of my life here. Who knows? But I hope that the above criteria will help you to evaluate for yourself which city is better, based on your preferences.

I had stayed in Pune for about 8 months and now I am staying in Hyderabad for the last 3 months. So I think I can write the answer to the question.

Pune:

It is a city with mountains and mountain stations that cover all the surroundings. The weather in this place is amazing and the rainy season is the most beloved here. Since it has numerous natural beauties around Canvasvala to Khandala, Mahabaleswar, Lavasa, Pawna Lake and many more. With this your weekend is ordered. If we come to the monthly expense, Pune is more expensive than Hyderabad. The availability of for people from all over the country cannot be found here. The city

If we come to the monthly expense, Pune is more expensive than Hyderabad. The availability of for people from all over the country cannot be found here. The city will indulge in bada pav and misel pav (which is also delicious, but only for a set time). Most of the restaurants in Pune are vegetarian. Finding * cheap * non-vegetarian restaurants is a difficult task. The commutation is a bit difficult as the city is very big and the number of buses is not great. Although Pune boasts of the bus rapid transit system, there are still few air-conditioned buses. It can be said that the rent for the house is in a moderate range. Pune is basically an automotive sector of the country. Sure, there are several IT companies present, but it is minor compared to Hyderabad. The main problem in Pune that I even faced is the unavailability of flights. As Pune Airport is a defense airport, very few airlines and flights operate from there.

Hyderabad:

The land of food lovers. If you are not a vegetarian, this is the best place for you. From biriyani to chicken grills, everything you can get at a very nominal price. In the morning, the streets will be flooded with * tiffin centers * and in the evening they will serve delicious muffins and hot samosas. Hyderabad does not have many places of natural beauty to visit, but there are fabulous palaces and forts to visit. The temperature here is comparatively high. You can feel the summer from the beginning of March. Hyderabad has various means of public transportation ranging from ordinary bus, subway bus, CA bus, subway trains, locals, rickshaws, and other online taxi services. Cyberabad or the great Hyderabad is the center of software companies. From Google to Oracle, From HCL to Microsoft, you can find the maximum number of software companies here. Apart from this, Ameerpet is a software study center. Coaching institute hostels are large in number and students from all over the country also come here for software study and opportunities. In addition to the daily offices, you can take additional courses on the weekends. Rajiv Gandhi International Airport is one of the busiest with a large number of national and international flights operating from it. Alcohols and pubs are cheaper than Pune.

So if you want to settle in a beautiful environment, this is Pune. But if you want to improve your skills with a cheaper life, Hyderabad is your city.

Hope you get your answer here. ☺️

In the long term, Pune has many advantages over Bengaluru due to the following points:

  1. House / Flats / PG: If you want to buy a house or rent a flat, Pune is much cheaper than Bengaluru. PG options are more in Bengaluru, but we all know what PG status is and no one stays in PG for long. After a certain time, everyone wants to move into an apartment.
  2. Climate: Although the frequency of rains in Bengaluru is higher than in Pune, the summer season is also bad compared to Pune. So in personal opinion I will prefer Pune to Bengaluru in terms of weather.
  3. Career opportunities: definitely

In the long term, Pune has many advantages over Bengaluru due to the following points:

  1. House / Flats / PG: If you want to buy a house or rent a flat, Pune is much cheaper than Bengaluru. PG options are more in Bengaluru, but we all know what PG status is and no one stays in PG for long. After a certain time, everyone wants to move into an apartment.
  2. Climate: Although the frequency of rains in Bengaluru is higher than in Pune, the summer season is also bad compared to Pune. So in personal opinion I will prefer Pune to Bengaluru in terms of weather.
  3. Career opportunities: Bengaluru is certainly a clear winner here, as on the outer ring road, after every 15 minutes, there is a technology park; on the other hand, Pune is still in a growth stage and has fewer technology parks.
  4. Traffic: The traffic is really bad in Bengaluru, if you are going somewhere, be prepared to spend 2-3 hours in traffic safely. Pune's traffic isn't very big, but it's on the move, so you won't have to spend 2-3 hours each time.
  5. Transportation: BMTC (Bengaluru Municipal Transport) buses are there, but in most places they take their time and the fares are higher. Most of the places you will have to go by Ola / Uber taxis alone as car is not an option in Bengaluru (even a 1km drive starts from Rs 50-100) and buses do not operate on the internal roads. In contrast, in Pune, buses (PMT / PMPML) operate quite well with lower fares in and out of the city, although the frequency is less than that of the BMTC. Also in Pune, car rates are much cheaper than Ola / Uber.
  6. Food: Bangalore has a lot of variety in food, but after a certain time, all restaurants will only have biryani (since it is located in the southern part of the country) for you, nothing more. Food is very expensive in Bengaluru, you even have to buy drinking water as it is not available in the municipality. Pune lacks variety, but it stays the same throughout the day, unlike restaurants in Bengaluru. Food is cheap in Pune compared to Bengaluru and there is no need to buy drinking water as it has been provided by PMC.
  7. Places to visit: Pune has many places to visit around the city within 200–300 km such as Lavasa, Lonavala, Khadakwasla Dam, Panshet Dam, Alibagh and many forts for hiking. You can take a private vehicle or go by Buses. Bengaluru does not have much to offer in this particular section as most places are much further than 300 km and you specifically need a private vehicle as public transport does not work well outside the city. In terms of clubs and drinks, Bengaluru is better than Pune.
  8. Travel: In Bangalore, for every thing you need, you need to travel more than 10-12 km safely. Since all the tech parks, the universities are located outside the heart of the city. In Pune, except Hinjewadi (which is the largest tech park), other tech parks in Kharadi, Magarpatta and Fursungi are closer to the city and the city center can be reached in 15-20 minutes.
  9. Language: Most of the people in Bangalore speak Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu, and Tamil. In Pune, most of the people speak Marathi and Hindi. The percentage of people who speak English is almost the same in both cities, but if you travel outside the city, English will not help you in either case, so it is better to learn the local language.
  10. Crowd and Events: Bengaluru has a mixed variety of crowd, it will have people from 20/30/40 age groups up to 50 years old. The events are really expensive, a normal entrance fee to a DJ event can cost anywhere from 1.5k to 5k. Pune has a much younger crowd than Bengaluru and the entrance fee to events is lower than Bengaluru.
  11. Medical facilities: In Bengaluru there are many hospitals (you cannot go to one hospital every time), but the small clinics cost much less and charge a really high amount, even just for the consultation, you will have to pay around Rs 500. Pune has fewer number of hospitals but it has a lot of small clinics and the prices are really low, starting from Rs 50.
  12. Metro: Pune does not have a Metro, but it will have one in a few years as the plan has already been approved. Pune has local trains that are very cheap even though they are full of people. Bengaluru has the Namma subway, but somehow it is not useful, most people do not use it because the routes are not suitable. Most days it runs empty or not working at all, no local trains BMTC buses are your only hope.

Overall, having lived in both cities, if I have to choose between the two regarding work location, I would rather Pune (although it has fewer opportunities) over Bengaluru on any given day.

Good luck!!!

Well you need to ask yourself a certain question

What kind of life are you looking for?

What kind of expenses are you looking for?

Where do you plan to have a life or settle down?

Mumbai- is fast paced, glamorous, expensive, small houses (the moment you enter the house you would feel like you are living in a little box), friendly people, go about their own business, good places to spend time. hang out, late night restaurants, the nights are really peaceful and beautiful, it's a city that never sleeps, really good restaurants, very close to the west, that's what merges during the monsoon

Bangalore - (whatever you've experienced so far) pretty laid back, bad traffic as really bad, locals aren't that welcoming the moment they find out you're from outside, best weather in the country, better roads, good connectivity for vacation spots, amazing pubs, good Biryani, spacious house at an affordable price in a good locality (like you could play ballroom cricket) the cost of living is comparatively lower, watch out for the rickshaw walas and the taxi drivers

Pune - counter laid back, amazing during monsoon, hiker's paradise, watch out for rickshaw walas and taxi drivers, low cost of living, good breweries, very close to some weekend getaways, has many forts built / conquered during Shivaji's rule, Mumbai-like weather with dry heat during the summer, 3 hours from Mumbai.

Special mention for Hyderabad (since I lived and traveled to this city)

Amazing people, very good infrastructure, amazing food (food to die for), cops are good too (personal experience) cost of living is very pocket friendly compared to the other 3 cities above, good presence of IT companies where you can have a good career time. Very laid back, very laid back, cheerful people to be specific Hyderabadi miyans ...

In the end, all I will say is ... whatever city you stay in ... learn to adapt and you will enjoy ... don't try to find the X component of your previous experience in the existing city ... you could ruin yourself the fun ... I know. In fact, when I retire, I will be relocating between Mumbai and Goa.

I lived in both cities, but I don't belong to either of them. So, I think I can give a neutral opinion.

Pune stands out -

  1. Good in many terms, better infrastructure / roads therefore less traffic or pleasant. Except for a few pockets and during rush hours, it can be absolutely normal to drive anywhere. Municipal corporations (especially PCMC) stand out in this regard. However, public transport is not well connected and Metro may be realistic only in 2019 or so. They have BRTS lanes, although not many respect that or are fully implemented, it is operational on many routes. This is quite the opposite compared to

They have BRTS lanes, although not many respect that or are fully implemented, it is operational on many routes. This is the complete opposite compared to Bangalore. Hope no explanations are needed to describe Bangalore's traffic and bad infrastructure. I believe that the civic administration of Bangalore is primarily responsible for the failure in this regard.
  2. Lots of natural getaways for the weekend. You can go every weekend to one place or another, just in a few KM to enjoy the lush green nature (especially from June to December), nature, hills, forts, valleys, etc. Also, there is not much to spend other than traveling. Bangalore doesn't have much about it, just shopping malls. There are a couple of getaways, but not just as day trips that you can do in Pune.

Bangalore stands out -

  1. Pure cosmopolitan. People are quite confused and it offers you at least 5 languages ​​to speak. While Pune is more conservative and less cosmopolitan. Mixing well or getting them out of the loop can be difficult.
  2. Food: Bangalore would really offer you what you want and how you want! Be it cuisine or culture. Some may disagree on this in Pune. Although there are a handful of established places on the city side of Pune, getting different cuisines can be difficult, especially given the comparison to 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

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.

In all respects, Pune is a very good city to live in.

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.

Mumbai will definitely lead as it is the financial capital of India ... plus most of the bank headquarters are located in Mumbai.

Kolkata too, as it was the ancient capital of British India, followed by Delhi, Chennai and others.
