World’s 10 most expensive cities to live in 2014

News For Real Estate Property: In a finding that may baffle many Indians, Mumbai has emerged as the world’s cheapest city to live in, followed closely by New Delhi at third place. For an average Indian, living costs in Mumbai may be a nightmare. But the new Worldwide Cost of Living 2014 index has thrown up an interesting finding.

India’s city of dreams has emerged as the world’s cheapest city to live in. The analysis takes into account the concept of value of money — how much bread would you get for one dollar or for that matter a litre of petrol. While Mumbai has emerged as the country with the best value for money spent, Delhi has emerged the third cheapest, placing it right at the bottom of the world’s most expensive cities.

The average cost of one litre unleaded petrol in Mumbai is $ 1.21 and in Delhi $ 1.14 as against $ 2.50 in Paris — the world’s second most expensive city.
