Living in India

India is a vibrant country with a mix of different cultures and religions. India is the second most populated country in the world. It is a rapidly developing country which is what makes it a favorable choice for expats.

While a lot of people continue migrating out of India for better work opportunities and lifestyle, the past few years has seen an increase in the number of people moving into India for the same reason. India is a great destination for expats looking to advance their career or start their own business.

What makes living in India so different from life in other places is the fact that each city in this diverse country has its own charm. While you’d experience a fast-paced and busy lifestyle in metropolitan cities like Mumbai or Delhi, life in smaller towns like Pune or Bhopal is more relaxed.

Politics in India

India is a democratic country. The President is the head of the country and the Prime Minister is the head of the Central Government. The Prime Minister of the country is elected every five years by the citizens of the country in the Lok Sabha elections. The Prime Minister has to be the leader of a political party.

The President of India is elected by the members of Parliament, and serves for five years. The primary duty of the President is to preserve and protect the constitution of the country.

Economy of India

The economy of India is the sixth largest in the world measured by GDP. By PPP, India has the third largest economy in the world. India’s economy is also said to be the fastest growing economy in the world over the last few years.

Buying or Renting Property in India

For expats, renting a good, affordable property in India isn’t very easy. Be prepared for extra trouble if you are single or an unmarried couple.

It is also not very uncommon in India for landlords to show up at your doorsteps any time demanding to have a look at their property. Unlike countries in the West, there aren’t any laws preventing landlords from doing so. To avoid any conflicts, it is best to sign a formal agreement with your landlord stating both parties’ terms clearly.

Compared to Western countries, rents in India are pretty low.

Expats aren’t exactly allowed to buy property in India. The rules right allow you to buy a property in India only if you have been living in India all your life, or can produce a Non-Resident Indian or Person of Indian Origin card.

“Writer Relocations' service was exceptional from the beginning. We started communicating for the clearance of goods in Mumbai. very timely communication and showed up right when they said they would, and worked hard, never slowing down. Writer Relocations came on time and did their job. They were fast, friendly, and very careful with our items while unpacking the stuff. I give my thanks to Writer Relocations for their wonderful support and timely operations. Thanks for everything and I wish good luck for Writer Relocations' future...I will definitely use them next time I move. I would rate the overall experience with Writer Relocations as a 4.6 out of 5 based on the service that they have provided to me for clearing the material in India. All in all, a great experience.”
