Hii.I’m planning to shift to Delhi for exam preparation.

Till now, I did all my Study in my Home-state and never lived in a metro-city.Actually, never went to Delhi.so, I am little-bit tensed about managing the lodging & fooding there on my own.
So, U guys can please advise me which area is better there to live in (Basically for self-study).And what will be the monthly expenditure?
Thanks in advance for your valuable advices.

Not exactly Delhi. I have lived in other cities for study purpose.
1. Find a hostel with hygienic room. Be smart about what you eat from mess.Better cook yourself
2. Make friends. Homesickness is real and recreation is important.
3. Be smart about time. Don’t mess sleeping pattern or have any other addictions.
4. Avoid going out from 11 am to 4 pm ,if you are not used to heat and pollution.

Do you have any idea about expense in a private hostel in Delhi?

I see, most people prefer Flat on sharing basis (3-4people).
But, I think more than 2 people is not good for study!!

May I know which exam you are preparing for?

Exam is individual thing. Group study is not effective.Avoid 3 4 people in same room.
But again It can be good idea(more towards enjoyment) if the exam you are preparing for does not require undivided focus.

First take hostel and make friends then only take flats with friends you trust… Otherwise hostel is ok
Try to be within walking distance to your classes or as near as possible. It will save hell lot of time of yours

There are plenty of hostels in Delhi depending upon what you want to prepare. North campus area/GTB nagar/Mukharjee Nagar is for UPSC, Laxmi Nagar and Patparganj is for CA/CS/MBA. Hostels starts from 2500 on sharing basis where you get a bed, a table and common toilet. Rooms in these area starts from 5k where you live alone with other students in a building. PG costs 10-15k. Hostels have food and plenty of eateries outside too. Environment is friendly and no one will trouble you. For a hostel 10k pm is enough, for more comfort you pay more. Area like Mukhrjee nagar can get you a part time job like pamphlet distribution or tiffin supply from makers.

Exactly. The knowledge level in 1 hostel of Mukherjee Nagar is much higher than people sitting in Niti Aayog. Even a tea shop owner can debate on Polity or Economics much better than an MP or RBI panel. And I’m not joking. 👍

Completely agree except Rbi panel. Rbi is only government institution which is very active in what they do. Lately it’s autonomous credential is up for toss.

What will be the approx. Monthly Expenditure (including food) in a hostel in Mukharjee Nagar?
How many persons live in one room in such a hostel? I prefer living alone but having less budget.
Is quality of food good enough that I don’t get sick?

Yes private rooms. If you want cheap rooms you need to walk on streets not see ads in app or any broker. You can cook yourself or eat outside.

You know one uber driver gave me more knowledge on state economics then all of the professors in my college economic dept.
He blew away my mind… sad to see such talented ppl being just drivers, they deserve better jobs.
