You can look at CV raman nagar as well.

Default Moving...relocating to Bombay

I have been transferred to Bombay. I need help from team members there in getting some gyan on Bombay.

- My office is in a place called Chinchpokhli. Are there any residential areas around there? I am looking to spend a max of 12K per month on rent. Which area is advisable
- I currently am in Delhi and commute around 1 hour 30 minutes one way. That should give you an idea of how much commuting I can put up with
- I am looking at good schools close to the residence. I do not want my 4 year old, UKG going son to commute for more than 20 minutes
- I have heard deposits for houses on rent are astronomical. Any via media around this?
- Is it better to drive to the office or use the local trains? I know the trains are a nightmare there. I have also heard that parking is a huge issue. What would the locals advice on this front?
- I am fond of open spaces with a good amount of greenery and quite a decent amount of peace (which means less noise). I hope such places are heard of and are available in Bombay??
- I have just one week before I pack lock, stock and barrel. Please hurry with responses
- I have take my car along. Is it better to drive to Bombay or to load it in a truck? How will I manage the re-registration if I drive it on my own? Can I continue with a Delhi number plate?

Sorry for such a huge list. I have many more questions but will save them for later.

Its not that I dont want to pay, but everyone at the RTO loves to fleece people.
If there is an official figure that is standard I wont mind but atleast I havent seen any till now.


Hey bro, no problem hope you are all set here and are enjoying your stay
Could you solve this problem?
I have a 1984 240D since new regd at Ahmedabad. Now i am moving to Bangalore after retirement. What should I do?

@Ramanna,

Your vehicle is more that 15 years old. So I believe you will have to produce a fitness certificate (How?) and then the road tax is to be paid annually.

While at it, is your road tax in you current location still valid? How are you paying it?

Default Relocation to Bangalore

Hi all,

Thread is very informative. I am moving to bangalore within a few weeks. Before this I was living in states for a while. My company is in Electronic City Phase 2. Though I have googled on most things I would appreciate if our fellow Banglorites or ex-banglorites can throw some light. I was a freq visitor to bang until 2002.

1. Where should I live If I need a furnished apartment for 20k?
2. What are the best places to hang out at?
3. Do BHPians meet in bangalore at some local place? if so WHERE?
4. Dont's of Bangalore

I would really appreciate your help. BTW I dont want to pay 10 months deposit!!! Please suggest. Bangy boys please HELP!

THANKS IN ADVANCE

You can try some place near electronic city. if you want to live closer to bangalore city, then BTM Layout (Try.. Mantri etc), or JP Nagar would be a target.

There are several places to hang out, it depends on what you like. some choices are malls, pubs, disco's, star hotels, restuarants (or darshini's) etc, etc. Bangalore has become a MALL city (from small city a decade ago)

regarding 10 months deposit, you can negotiate with the house owner for the lower amount, but you might have to pay slightly monthly higher rent.

welcome back to bangalore

Thanks Star! While I was a freq visitor I never stayed for more than 5 days. What is BTM layout? If it helps I am Gujju not sure if language is a barrier these days. About hangouts; I wanted to know the night scene. Are there any good clubs to go out with wifey?

Any suggestions on what localities I should look for? Someone told me Indiranagar is the closest?

Also looking to move my lovely UVA along with me.. but the road tax is working out to a prohibitive 38K according to this page New Page 1. The car is barely 6 months old. Should i sell it and buy another one in BLR?
You want to sell your car and buy a new one just because of the registration??? not necessary brother, Iwould suggest not to sell or register it again just run it with your current registration and incase cops catch you just tell them that you have just moved in to blr and will be registring it soon if it doesnt work pay Rs 100-300 to the cop and you will be free to go

1. To be in commuting distance of Electronic City, and still to be in Bangalore, I would recommend HSR Layout or Sarjapur Outer Ring Road area. I would avoid BTM Layout for its packed roads in office time. I think it will take half hour of commute time.
Getting a fully furnished apartment within 20K might be little tougher. But semi-furnished ones (with kitchen cabinets, bedroom wardrobes, electrical fittings) are common.

2. There are plenty, but will depend on your taste.

3. Green Annexe in Sarjapur Road is one of the favourites. Night drives typically happen to CCDs/Barista on Mysore Road.

4. Can't recall any.

Deposits - that's pretty much norm. So most probably no luck there.

Thanks Arindamray, I spoke with a few serviced apartments the best they came to is 25k with no deposit. Do you know any good ones?
BTW Can you elaborate more on Night drives? Does crowd gather with their nice rides by CCD? Would be a sight if so happens!

Not much idea on service apartments.
For night drives, check the http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...bangalore.html (Quick Meets at Bangalore) thread.

Ok so after a lot of cold calling and google I found a website that has a dump of all serviced apartments. Below is the link so the ones who are in situations as mine can refer it.
