  • In 9k-10k budget u can only expect a room at Mukherjee nagar.
    ·
  • @Anurag_Sinha You could get a decent room in Old Rajinder Nagar with an AC in around 10k. I have several friends who do live there in under 10k. You will need to contact a broker for the same, who will charge you between 15 days to 20 days rent as brokerage fee.

    It would be very difficult to find a room without using a broker's service.

  • @Neyawn 10k is anurag's budget for all expenses (not budget for room rent).
    @Anurag_Sinha try Patel nagar, give a try to new Rajender Nagar (very low chances of finding a room below 8k per month) Or you can just go to Mukherji Nagar as Shasha said, Mukherji Nagar will be the cheapest of all.

  • Ah, thanks for pointing that out @Jacob. In fact Shadipur /Patel Nagar would be a good area as well. I remember a good friend of mine staying in Patel Nagar last year, to keep himself away from the distractions of ORN. And he did end up fine.

    You have all the classes available in Mukherjee Nagar that are there in ORN. Except Vajiram.

  • the distractions of ORN.
    Very good point :)>-
    *Duniyadari* me fasne ka bahut darr hai ORN me. Not good for any aspirant [-X
    Infact, I lived in ORN for last june till end of mains. Now, I'll look for a room in shadipur/Patel nagar. ORN!!!! too hot for me =((

  • Minimum prices.

    You can get

    5.5-6 k in Karol Bagh. Near coaching, all facilities, away from the ORN hotspot(chai) so you will not waste time there but dirty locality, you will probably need to buy headphones.

    7k+ in ORN. :
    Good locality, but too many distractions. YOu will most probably be found ogling in the streets. Many south indian students.

    5-6k in Mukarjee nagar.
    Environment is directly proportional to price but overall good, will not get bored, mostly north Indian students, no vajiram,

    5-6k in Shadipur.
    Far away, will get bored if studying alone, kinda feels cutoff.

    Food: 2 times a day:
    avg price: 2400/month( ORN), 3000 with breakfast veg/nonveg
    Cheapest: 2100/month ( ORN) veg/ no breakfast
    South Indian: 3600/month with breakfast,

    Electricity:
    ORN, avg. 600-700
    Karol Bagh: 150-250
    Shadipur: 100-200
    Mukharjee nagar: NA

    @GambiTTT @Neyawn and @Jacob thank you very much for your response. yes my total budget is 10k (inclusive of food and electricity). i am not gonna enroll for any coaching so any area will do which has suitable study environment.(jyada cheekh pukar na ho mohalle me). will be visiting delhi in feb end will look for a room then. i guess rajinder nagar is out of the budget.
    how is katwariya sarai and ber sarai. any idea about living exp there? thanks a lot again >:D<

  • Try out in Munirka. It will be close to Ber Sarai and most economical..though quite conjusted. I had rented a one room kitchen in Munirka for INR 4500+Electricity bill @ Rs. 7.00 per unit. The place I lived in was quite peaceful. There is a hostel too that charged Rs 5000 with food, but was on sharing basis. Brokers are in plenty.
    Ber Sarai might be unavailable due to IES rush in the region. Yet give it a try!

  • @GambiTTT
    I am thinking to join Sriram Ias and would take a room probably in rajinder nagar. What are the distractions people are talking about ? Else please advise appropriately regarding where to take a room considering Sriram is in Rajinder Nagar.
    ·
  • Naa, just the chai shop, some people go there too much like a hangout spot. If you have self control, you can avoid it. Nothing else.

    Sriram is in mukharjee nagar too.

    Location doesn't matter, both mukharjee nagar and rajendra nagar are good, but don't take advice from people on the street and don't make too many friends. You are not there to search for long lasting friendship. One of my friends who lives in mukharjee nagar told that he regularly advises others who come up to him. He is not preparing for this exam.

  • Hi all. I am searching for a single room furnished/semi-furnished in and around shadipur area. My budget is around 6000-7000(just for the room rent, no electricity, nothing else). My only concern is that the room must be quiet and clean, with toilet and kitchen attached, not far from metro and I don't want to end in a hostel having 20-30 single/double room.I don't need AC or any luxury equipment but yes cooler would be nice. I am ok with having few (2-3) colleagues, but not a hostel.Is it possible.

  • what i learnt from my experience is that its better to stay at home if coaching is over
    ·

    if u are a hindi medium student( i dnt think u are)
    then u should go only with Mukharjee Nagar

    if u are from english then also MN is ok but u should check other places also
    not many of the places near to metro and near to coaching are cheap
    do teen log ka jugad karo, tabhi karol bagh me 10k me nikal payega

    aram se rehna hai to MN is the good
    but all english medium coachings are not situated there

    :(

  • @Anurag_Sinha I have tried room in Ber sarai area....good news is that after GATE exam which held on 10th feb most of rooms are vacant and will be vacant by march first week....room with attached bathroom are available from Rs.4500 to Rs.6000.....but i find it too congested thus for me very few options were left there.......
    I am planning to join R. Chokkalimgam current affairs classes starting from 20th Feb thus looking for a semi furnished room in RJN/Jhandewallan/patel nagar area...... dont know it will be comfortable to have twin sharing PG room......i think fringe areas of RJN will be cheaper and peaceful option.....
    Does anyone having idea about these areas having semi furnished 1 room set?

    Room available without brokerage in old rajinder nagar.

  • is good accommodations available in cp too?
    ·
  • @Je_peux_le_faire : Can you help me with a decent single room, but i am pretty constrained with my budget (8-9k) ... ! I have to shift in 2 days. I have talked to few of them but suggestion would be helpful.
    ·
  • It's difficult to find a decent room in 8-9k in Rajinder Nagar. I couldn't find one for myself so had to shell out 17k for a decent room by my standards. Well I saw one room through a broker for 10k. It was pretty good actually but only bathroom had to be shared amongst two. If you want I can give you that broker's no. and you can go see that room if it's stll available. Btw are you joining vaji's mains updated course?

  • I need some help to look for a single room/single pg in Mukherjee Nagar. Looked around 10-11 rooms in Karol Bagh, but I found the place dirty, unhygienic. ORN is a bit too expensive. Budget around 9k. +/- some margin acceptable.

    Any help would be appreciated.Thanks!
