What are the pros and cons of living in India?
Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in India responded:
"Expats and digital nomads often appreciate the vibrant culture and friendly people of India. They also enjoy the low cost of living, which allows them to stretch their budget further. Additionally, the country offers a wide variety of cuisine, from traditional Indian dishes to international fare.

Additionally, the infrastructure in some parts of the country can be lacking, making it difficult to access certain services," remarked one expat in India.
"Pondicherry is a wonderful city.. you can do as much or as little as you like.. the French institute offers activities and social events and the city is easy to get around.. White Town is the nicer area to live and many home and apartments have a sea view.. keep in mind it is very hot and humid in their summers.," explained one expat living in Pondicherry.
