"Many a man who pays rent all his life owns his own home; and many a family has successfully saved for a home only to find itself with nothing but a house". It seems the American author Bruce Barton was literally describing the plight of Indian expats living here.
"How much is the rent in your area?" is a sure subject matter for chatting among Pravasis. An average Pravasi spends all his life to own a house in their home town. In the course, he splurges his youthful years sweating and slogging, and paying a fat share of his salary here as rent.
TajDubai gives you a quick understanding of the rent structure in Dubai and Sharjah. These are the two emirates which are thickly populated by Pravasis. Most Pravasi works in Dubai and lives in Sharjah. They trek through the traffic morning and evening, spending at least for two hours on road; still they find it worth the money saved.
