Removals to India: About India
India has a landmass of 1.27 million square miles and is the largest democracy in the world. It is also a country where every major religion is represented including Hindu, Buddhism, Sikhism and Islam.
As one of the oldest countries in the world, India has many splendid buildings, temples and monuments, including one of the most beautiful structures in the world, The Taj Mahal. This breathtaking marble monument, in the city of Agra, was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial to his favourite wife. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and attracts some three million visitors a year.
If you are moving to India to settle in this incredible, colourful country you will find the people friendly, intelligent and welcoming.
Removals to India: The Weather
India is vast and the weather can vary dramatically, depending on the time of year and where you have chosen to live.
As a whole, however, the country has three distinct seasons: hot, cool and wet (which is the monsoon season). Although the regions vary from one place to another, with the extreme north being a different climate to the far south, generally the best time of year, as far as temperature goes, is from November to mid-February.
Summers in India can be stifling as it gets extremely hot, dry and uncomfortable so it's best to head to the mountains to cool off if you can!
Removals to India: Religion
The majority of India's population (80 per cent) are Hindu and the country is home to the world's largest pilgrimage destination, Vishnu Temple, also called Dashavatara Temple, in Central India, which attracts 30,000 visitors a day.
India has the third largest Muslim population in the world (after Indonesia and Pakistan). A total of 13 per cent of the population follow Islam and the country has the largest number of mosques in the Muslim world, around 300,000.
Removals to India: Population and Economy
With a population of 1.2 billion people, India is the second most populated country after China. The most populated city in India is Mumbai, which has more than 12.5 million residents, closely followed by the capital, Delhi, which has a population of 11 million.
India has around a million millionaires but more than 40 per cent of the population live below the World Bank's International Poverty Line. However, before it was invaded by the British in the 17th century, India was regarded as one of the richest countries in the world.
Today it is considered a newly industrialised country which has one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The service sector accounts for more than half the country's GDP and the industrial sector, a quarter.
It is also the largest exporter of computer software products globally. Other major exports include petroleum products, textiles, jewellery, chemicals and engineering goods.
Removals to India: Lifestyle and Etiquette for Expats
India is a fascinating and diverse country, rich in culture and traditions and there are between 20,000 to 30,000 expats living here.
If you are moving to India, we have compiled some tips on customs and etiquette to help you adjust to your new lifestyle:
Indian food is often eaten with your hands, so wash your hands thoroughly before eating and do not eat with your left hand as this is considered dirty. Wait for the eldest diner to start first and finish the food on your plate as leaving or wasting food is thought to be disrespectful.
Displaying affection in public is not acceptable and is to be avoided.
The gesture of grasping the ears shows sincerity and repentance and in India, ears are seen as sacred.
To greet people in a business environment, a simple 'namaste' (meaning 'hello') and a light handshake is suitable among people of the same sex. However, between men and women, 'nameste' is sufficient.
