I am from amchi MUMBAI of cource, I am a Electrical Consultant, I have my office in Andheri west on Veera Desai Road, and I stay in Seven Bunglows (3.5 Kms). I and my office staff are early starters, we start at 9.00AM and wind up around 6.00 PM. I am home in less then 10 to 15 minutes, I dont have to break my head with the traffic from townside towards suburbs. This is a blessing in disguise during heavy downpour when Mumbai is submerged and guys from town side take ages to reach home I make it in minutes. I use either Maruti 800 5 SPEED, Fiat linea, Honda Accord, Maruti Swift VDI,

Sorry Guys for reviving this old thread, but I couldn't resist myself.
After relocating from Mumbai to Bangalore, the office commute is heaven
I start at 8:40 AM for 9:00 AM office timing (Sonyworld Kormangalore to CV Raman Nagar) and start at 6:00 PM and reach home at 6:25 PM.
It's heaven. In mumbai, I used to travel 4 hours daily for office commute.
Now it's just 45 min.

Sorry - couldn't stop myself from bumping up this thread (which was started in 2008) and till 2010 most of the members have reported reaching home by 9 / 10 PM!

In my case, I got relocated to Delhi, Mumbai & back to Pune in the intervening period (2011 - 2014) and timings are like this -

Delhi - leave home by 7 AM and back by 10 PM (To and fro travel time - 3 hrs)

Mumbai - leave home by 7.30 AM and back by 8.30 PM (To and fro travel time - 2 and a half hours)

Pune (now) - leave home by 9.15 AM and return after 9 PM. (To and fro travel time - One hour fifteen minutes).

In the last four year all these cities have seen increased traffic volume. There were no hassles in Delhi and Mumbai, because of the Metro and Local. Pune is a different story altogether - had I stayed in Mumbai, I could have been travelling on the Mono or the Eastern Freeway now and avoided the mad rush of the two wheelers on the roads in Pune.....

What is the position at other cities now ? Same - Worse - Improved??

That's surprising.

I always thought PSU Bank is a 9-5 job. Cool, composed, no tension, no stress kind of.

By PSU bank you mean likes of BOI/SBI/PNB etc right?

Banish the thought!

It has been a long time since I saw sunset on a week day.

And not to speak of the countless Sundays and holidays spent at work....

I am still in my seat, trying to finalise a report - so took a break to catch up

Traveling by road from Delhi to Gurgaon is indeed a hassle. I remember the time when I was in Gurgaon - getting off the highway into Gurgaon used to take 10 minutes in the traffic. Thank God for the metro - getting down at HUDA city centre and walking was the best option.
