No, you'll still live incredibly well by Indian standards, but that's not equivalent



What company ?


It's a niche consulting firm.

Possibly close if you don’t go overboard with the rent in Gurgaon.

Will be living rent free in Ggn


It might be better actually! 200 K pre tax in NJ is pretty tough with inflation in rent and everything else! Rent free in Gurgaon might be a better lifestyle! Though the cost there have gone up but not as much as NJ!

40 lpa is good in Gurgaon as long as you don’t need to buy a house. You can afford nice car, all naukar chakkar, go out on weekends and long vacations.
