Possible New Job In India, Questions

Hello,
I have the chance of possibly working in India for a while, though at the moment I don't know exactly where (the contract agency is a still a bit hush hush about the exact location). I assume that it will be one of the big cities, either Mumbay or Delhi. Anyway, it will be line work on MD-11 aircraft (so who flies MD-11 to India?).

Now how hard is it to find affordable accomodation and then, how much will it be? How much will I have to pay for tax or is there a period I will be tax exempt, like e.g. if I work for less than 6 months in a European country?
How hard and how expensive is it to get a car?

Maybe one of our Indian fellow A.netters will be able to help.

Thanks,

Jan

If its Mumbai it could be Fedex.
In Mumbai Accomodation would be Expensive but you'll be comfortable with the Lifestyle.Del is a bit different.
Check your Appointment letter.it would hold the details with terms & conditions.
Language will not be a problem in BOM.
Cars are available eaisly.But the Traffic in the day is crazy.

Usually big companies provide car and accommodation in India. Check for those in your contract/appointment.

I think you would have to pay taxes on your income in India and it would be deducted at source. You'll be exempt only if your annual income is less than a cut-off, not in your case as it will exceed.

I talked to the guy of the agency again. He still would not give me the exact location, probably to pevent me from figuring out the airline and contacting it mdirectly myself to make a deal which would exclude him. He only said that it could be either Mumbay, Delhi or Madras (I think it is called Chennai nowadays?).

I will see that accommodation is included in the contract (what is expensive in India? I don't need a luxury flat, but it should have a certain standard). About the tax, since I will probably get paid in Europe (the agency is Dutch/Irish) I don't know if they will tax me in India. Most contractors I know set up offshore accounts for their money earned abroad.

What is the electrical voltage and frequency in India? 220V/50Hz as in Europe?

Thanks for the answers so far!

Yup, but the weather there is horrible. Hot and humid all the time, same with Bombay. DEL is better, but awful in summer.

Also, don't even consider driving yourself in any Indian city. The traffic is a nightmare, you would be better off hiring a full-time driver.

There are some very nice flats in those cities, but I think they are pretty expensive, I have no idea what the rent would be.

Yes it is 220 V, but get a surge protector to prevent your laptop and other equipment from the sudden voltage surges which frequently occur in India.

I think the start-up company Flyington Freighters wants to get MD-11s, maybe it's that one.

What difference does it make in Chennai? The poster wouldn't know Hindi or Marathi either.

actualy the standard of spoken english in South Indian cities like Chennai and Bangalore is way better than in Mumbai or Delhi. I would rate Delhi the worst in this regard.



Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Now Mel, be honest.
English is much better in South India than in Delhi. No question.

Now, I agree that BOM is more cosmopolitan. Tamils still think that 9pm is late, and skirts are for "those western women".
