I had been in Dubai for many years.Dubai is very costly particularly the house rent.Of course very recently it has come down for recession but not that cheap,hence all indians prefer sharjah and suburbs.But food etc. is not that costly.Your 50000 in indian curency will be something near to 5000 dhrms.Little difficult.But if you are alone it's ok.

If u wanna live w/ 50k INR in Dubai, I doubt u will b able to live in Dubai itself. U may have to live in Ajman or Fujiera or Sharjah and then commute 2 Dubai 4 ur work.

Rocketing housing prices and inflation running at around 10% means that living in Dubai has become a lot more expensive over the last few years.

The general lack of taxation has a significant impact on the cost of certain items, e.g. cars. On the other hand, the cost of accommodation is high, as is that of certain food items, particularly imported foods. If you buy internationally recognised branded foods and household goods, you might pay higher prices than in your home country, but there are usually plenty of cheaper locally and regionally produced alternatives that are of excellent quality.

The price of wines and spirits, where these are permitted, is slightly lower than in the UK but higher than average European prices. Electronic goods, such as televisions, hi-fis, DVD players, photographic equipment and computer hardware and software, a ...more
