Which city in India has the most job opportunities in which sector?

Mumbai has the most job opportunities in media, communications and marketing, and even finance (most fin jobs)

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 only by Ola / Uber taxis as Auto 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!!!
