Removals to Delhi, India: Living in the Capital
Delhi has a population of nearly 13 million and is said to be one of the fastest growing cities in the world. As the capital of India, it is the main gateway to the country and has the busiest airport in the whole of India, transporting an incredible 35 million passengers a year.
The city is the largest in India and is vast. It is worth noting, however, that only part of the city is referred to as New Delhi, which is the capital, although both Delhi and New Delhi are interchangeable.
New Delhi has only been the capital since 1912, as this was previously Calcutta. Much of the plans for the city were drawn up by British architect Edwin Lutyens and the city is built around two main streets, Janpath and Raipath.
As the capital, the city is the political heart of India and is also the country’s commercial and financial hub. As such it offers many opportunities for expats, a number of whom take up jobs in the service sector in industries such as information technology (IT), finance or telecommunications.
However, the city is not all about politics and commerce; it is a cultural city with many important and historic buildings. In addition to this, expats can join in the many colourful national and religious festivals celebrated here.
Removals to Delhi, India: Places to Visit
Delhi is full of fascinating architecture and places to visit and there are a number of museums and other attractions.
A must see is Khari Baoli which is the biggest wholesale spice market in the whole of Asia, selling everything from nuts, herbs and tea. It has a history that dates back to the 17th century and can be found on Khari Baoli Road near the historic Delhi Red Fort.
The 17th century red sandstone fort is also a major tourist draw and is the largest monument in the capital. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most popular attractions in Delhi.
Another wonderful place to visit is the incredible Lotus Temple. The building is simply stunning; it is shaped like a lotus bud and is seen as one of the finest buildings ever made from concrete.
Qutub Minar is the world’s tallest brick minaret and stands at 234 feet high. It attracts nearly 4 million visitors a year. Climb the 379 steps to the top to get a fantastic bird’s eye view of the city.
Removals to Delhi, India: Accommodation for Expats
The cost of living in Delhi is high and there can be difficulties finding suitable accommodation in the city, so many expats opt to flat share.
The rent price varies according to where you choose to live and new buildings tend to be much more expensive than older builds, even if the two properties are adjacent to one another.
Some of the most sought after areas for expats include South Delhi and areas such as Westend, Golflinks, Malcha Marg and Jorbagh. Other good areas include Hauz Khas, Defence Colony and Sarvodya Enclave and these are less expensive than the areas listed above.
It is possible to negotiate discounts of up to 15 percent off the asking price and it is possible to get even bigger discounts if you are prepared to pay several months rent up front.
Removals to Delhi: Out and About in Delhi
Delhi is a very ‘green’ or environmentally friendly city and has one of the world’s largest public transport systems run on Compressed Natural Gas.
You can get out and about by tube which is recommended in Delhi as it is a very efficient way of getting from place to place and the tube goes almost anywhere in the city. There are also separate carriages for women.
Other ways of getting about is by train or, better still, by bus. Buses run frequently but can get very crowded, especially in peak times. There are also taxis, auto rickshaws and cycle rickshaws.
