exactly.. the rents are super high in Mumbai and so is other living cost, like the ones you mentioned.

A simple google search confirms what I said.

From the URL above: You would need around 125,015.58Rs in Mumbai to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 89,000.00Rs in Bangalore (assuming you rent in both cities). This calculation uses our Cost of Living Plus Rent Index to compare cost of living.

Indices Difference Info
Consumer Prices in Mumbai are 10.32% higher than in Bangalore
Consumer Prices Including Rent in Mumbai are 40.47% higher than in Bangalore
Rent Prices in Mumbai are 142.81% higher than in Bangalore
Restaurant Prices in Mumbai are 34.01% higher than in Bangalore
Groceries Prices in Mumbai are 8.12% higher than in Bangalore
Local Purchasing Power in Mumbai is 25.82% lower than in Bangalore

You would need around 75,780.74Rs in Mysore to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 89,000.00Rs in Bangalore (assuming you rent in both cities).

Indices Difference Info
