Lets do the calculation 16k *20=3.2lk in India. If you are going for a simple 1 room in a shared apartment. Your living expenses will be around 5k max. So your savings will be 11*20 around 2.1lk. since you will be using an NRI account your tax will be nil. So your year end saving will be 2.1 * 12 which will be around 25.2lk.


Now drawbacks. You will be away from family, living there for a long time will make you socially awkward. Very little enjoyment and life outside work. These all drawbacks are common if you are leaving India.


Learn more about the Saudi culture, go through vlogs of youtubers. It's not about salary as much as it is about the culture difference.


Single or family give more information about you

For now if single it's good


16000 SAR is good as compare to 24LPA because there is tax deduction in 24Lpa . My suggestions go with Saudi


Great...when it will be implemented same in India 🤪

I leant from my few friends who worked in saudi that if you're from community other than Islam , its bit difficult to merge . There is no direct offence or anything. It will feel like you were living alone among the crowd.
Saudi has a better economical aspect compared to India. 0 income tax and gold and electronic things are cheap due to low taxes.

So if you don't mind the above point , saudi is a really great choice. I would choose to go to saudi because I love the food and pay :-p


Tech stack and how you got this opportunity




Please tell how you received this opportunity

I had been to Riyadh; culturally it is very different from India, So I would suggest opt the option to stay in India or search for similar onsite opportunities with different geographic locations other than middle east

How you got the opportunity?

Dear Sharks, I have been told by manager that they will send onsite to me whenever I asked, Due to this I am not able to switch into other company

in spite of I had offer from good company which I didn't utilize and now again I have few in pipelines. I have very less CTC as per my experience level.

Now how to deal with this situation.
