Living and Working in India
Living in India can offer a taste of life that is exotic and diverse. It is a bright and vibrant country with a mix of different cultures and people. Cities in India allow for a high standard of living for a relatively low cost and the majority of expatriates live comfortably. The cost of most things, including entertainment, education, housing and food is lower than that in western countries.
The official language of India is Hindi, which is spoken by approximately 30% of the population. English is also prevalent and is the major language of the trade and service sectors. There are an additional 14 other official languages and 37 different languages in total spoken throughout the country and each state has its own language or dialect. Hindi is commonly spoken in the upper half of India. However, Southern India, especially the four southern states, have very few Hindi speakers and many more English speakers.
India is a vast country with diverse weather patterns, with four different climatic regions. There are generally two seasons in India; a rainy season and dry season.
With a choice of 7 exciting base cities across India including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru or Hyderabad, enjoy the lifestyle and diversity this unique country has to offer.
