"The cost of living in India varies greatly depending on where one is located. Generally, cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Chennai have higher costs of living than areas in rural India. Rental prices for nice 1-bedroom apartments in India range between $250 - $600 USD per month, while 2-bedroom rentals can range between $400 - $800 USD per month.
