Many south Indians fear to live here because of language barrier.  But, most of the people here are working with MNCs, there’s very low chance that they do not understand or speak English. It is the most preferred language among the youth, as it seems. So, language cannot be a barrier and you wouldn’t have a hard time communicating with people if you can speak English or little bit of Hindi.

The best advantage of living in or around Gurgaon is – even if you are someone not employed or recruited in any office there are many places to work here, you can apply in many companies.

There is a lot of exposure in this place since a lot of people are working in MNCs like Deloitte, KPMG, PWC, Ernst & Young, American Express and you get to interact with them in many clubs and restaurants and malls all around you.
