I've stayed in Bangalore for 35k pm before the pandemic and managed to save around 15k.


I mean, earning a lakh is very good. You'll probably 'live' in Bangalore with that much. But you can 'survive' on a lot less as well.

3 sharing PGs with food included costs around 7k a month. Plus another 3k for transportation. Keep 5k for miscellaneous (occasional eating out/Zomato), 2k buffer, 3k in SIPs.

Pretty good if you're a bachelor, I'd say.


What salary per month can be justified in a statement? Does most people in Bangalore earning more than 1 lakh or that is just a myth?

No, It's not a myth. There will be people who are earning lessthan 20k (Usually in beginning of career), many in the range of 50k-1L, few 1L-2L, very few > 2L per month.
But due to recent salary increases after COVID, there are many in between 1-2L after company switching.

Compared to other cities, i have seen companies in Bangalore offering better pay.

Any tips on negotiating with multiple adverse parties? I represent the plaintiffs. Multiple defendants with varying degrees of liability. Mediation unsuccessful because they’re all arguing over who owes what. Now I’m back negotiating with all of them individually and all have expressed interest in settling. Besides the obvious (just filing suit) what would be some strategies to get them all to agree to a settlement? Negotiate with each individually?

Hello Fishes,

Hope you all are doing well!

I plan to switch to Bangalore starting May & I prefer staying close to my office location, i.e. Ferns City, Doddanekkundi.

I'm willing to share a flat with flatmate(s). Any suggestions on which area would be best suited for accomodation & estimated house rent?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks! :)

Campus Hire, MBA Marketing, and will be completing 5 yrs with D next month.
My role was not what I'd expected so I didn't plan to stay for so long, but here we are. I dread every single day at work.
I want to move to Marketing oriented roles but my current profile is becoming a hindrance. Have been upskilling through certifications but don't have hands-on experience.
Anyone who's moved to e-commerce companies or marketing and can guide me?
Salary peanuts. Really want to get out of this mess🙏
