If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

He can consider moving into the city, but I would advise him to stay in a place at least 20 km away. The city centre is highly polluted and traffic is CRAZY. For a comfortable living a couple has to earn a minimum of Rs 25 000
