You might be moving to this gem of a city for your first job or completing your education or a job switch or even a transfer, whatever the case may be, Pune is ready to welcome you in all the stages of life.
Ever wondered about a city with an IT hub like Bangalore but less expensive, a city with pleasant weather like Hyderabad but more happening, a modern city like Mumbai but with less crowd and traffic, a ‘dilwali city’ like Delhi but with lesser uproars, a city that is great to live in like Chennai but has less extreme weather? Pune is all of these and more! This second-largest city in Maharashtra has mostly secured top ranks in the ‘most liveable cities in India’.
Although moving to any new city is a tedious process on its own and you might also feel homesick in the beginning yet Pune is a city where you’ll feel less uncomfortable than anywhere else in the country – with such pleasant weather, widespread greenery, and modern urban infrastructure, you’ll surely settle-in in no time!
Here are six tips that can come in handy with your new beginnings in Pune –
Pune is a great location for IT people, as Hinjewadi in Pune is the second largest IT hub in the country, after Bangalore. Hijnewadi is home to more than 800 IT companies and startups with around 250000 total employees! Apart from the very popular IT industry, Pune is also regarded as one of the top automobile and manufacturing hubs of the country and consequently, there are a lot of job opportunities in the automotive industry as well.
Pune is a major educational hub of the country with multiple great schools and colleges. Also popularly called the ‘Oxford of the East’, Pune has multiple prominent universities and deemed universities like – the Defence Institute of Advanced Technology, Deccan College Post-Graduate and Research Institute, National Institute of Construction Management and Research, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, National Defence Academy, Bharati Vidyapeeth, Tilak Maharashtra University, Dnyaneshwar Vidyapeeth, Savitribai Phule Pune University, Vishwakarma University, MIT – World Peace University, Ajeenkya DY Patil University, and Symbiosis International University.
Some of the popular and prestigious schools of Pune include – The Bishop’s School, St Helena’s School, Loyola High School, Symbiosis International School, and the Mercedes-Benz International School.
The real estate prices in Pune are much more affordable than that in Mumbai, Delhi, or Bangalore. More and more real estate companies are developing newer housing projects with modern architecture especially centered around the millennial population of the city. Pune consists largely of a young population due to a large number of colleges and major IT industry, hence apartment-style living is more common and convenient in the city.
Pune is a mix of cultures, so you can easily find all kinds of food delicacies here, such as Vada Pav, Pav Bhaji, Burgers, Chat, ChholeBhature, Masala Dosa, and so on. You will also get to devour the traditional Maharashtrian cuisine with Puran Poli, Amti – spicy lentil or bean curry, Mango Mastani, Thalipeeth, Sabudanavada, PithlaBhakri, Missal Pav, Matki Ki Usal, Bakar Vadi, and Amras Puri, among many other delectable dishes. In addition to these, Kayani’s famous Shrewsbury and ChitaleBandhuMithaiwale’sBakarwadi are the must-try in Pune!
As a general review from multiple people living in Pune, we’ve understood that the public transport in Pune is not the best. Although the public transport availability is good, the condition of the buses and/or the taxis is not the best and hence it is advisable to buy a two-wheeler for yourself as soon as possible. Pune metro is also a great option but currently, it serves a rather small area. However, since we’re living in an era of the internet, you can always rely on cabs from multiple service providers like Ola, Uber, Rapido, Meru, etc. Other than cabs, there is also an option for self-driving cars and subscription-based cars!
The geography of Pune is great as it is situated on the western margin of the Deccan Plateau, and is a hilly city with multiple hill stations as well as historical forts. Pune’s weather is a moderate one, summers are hot but not as hot as Delhi or as humid as Mumbai. The evenings in Pune are always cooler and feel much more pleasant than its other metropolitan counterparts. The greenery surrounding the city is eye-catching, and it keeps the city cool all year. You can also take weekend trips or excursions to nearby hill stations such as Khandala, Lonavala, and Panchgani to enjoy the natural beauty.
