    Tips for living in Delhi :

  • Local Transportation - Traffic can at time be impossible and risky and the use of taxis is a cheap option. Tell the driver your destination and negotiate your price upfront or ask to see their tariff card first. People who don't do this often get cheated on the fair.
  • Get registered with a Doctor – We advice you to get a health insurance through private health insurance. Almost all reputed health insurance companies have tie up with good hospitals. Get registered with a doctor in your neighbourhood.
  • Be a savvy shopper - Get to know what locals pay for daily household needs, clothing or furniture. The prices are often different for locals vs. expats. Many people still believe all expats are rich and deserve to pay twice as much for what they want. Know what things cost and ask to the 'Local Pricing' for things.
  • Hire a Cook - Look for a good Cook through some expat club who can cook food as per your taste as you may not like Indian as it is normally too spicy, where ever you go.
  • Build a networking - Join some Expat community to build your network so that you can contact them in if you need any kind of help.
  • Get A Grasp of the Local Lingo - Try to pick up some Hindi words and phrases which will draw appreciative smiles and also ease your passage through this mega polis. Complimenting someone in Hindi or greeting an Indian with "Namaste" instantly builds a rapport. English is widely understood and spoken in Delhi and getting around the city armed with just English will do the trick.
