Thanks Gio, besides McDonalds :) how much is standard food for the month and water and electricity.
He is going to be working for an Architect firm as he has just finished his degree and will be doing an internship or paid work experience - initially only staying for 6 months but would like to be 10 months - he would probably like to rent a car if only on the weekends.
This is great information - you are such a great help thank you :)
I think in terms of salary, for internship in architecture field, it is safe to ask for a range Rs 18 000 to Rs 20 000. I have a friend who came from france and doing an internship at our agency. Then you can re-negotiate working terms and conditions and salary after 6 month or a year, depending on your employer.
For utility bills and food, i think Rs 5000 maximum. Maybe even less. Some places, the utility bills are inclusive, so it gets even less. However, it you eat out everyday, then it can get expensive. Well, that's the case for any country really. Home prepared meals are much cheaper than buying outside.
Hope this helps
