The rise of IT may affect the cost of living

As we have seen in Bangalore by which how the prices have shot up due to the rise in demand for basic necessities

Bangalore is completely filled with new-age startups and large IT corporations.

Comparing prices

This particular field of economics is too complex and requires such a depth of knowledge to understand it.

To make it very easier let’s do it with an example

If more people migrate to a city for employment then the requirement for rental housing will skyrocket. If rental increases then the property prices increase. As a result, all the basic necessities will also increase.

Rising inflation, however, will add fuel to the fire of the rising cost of living.

Why Hyderabad may not affect as Bangalore

Unlike Bangalore, Hyderabad doesn’t totally depend on the IT sector. Hyderabad’s vast expansion in the Pharma sector. In fact, Hyderabad pharma companies produce roughly 1/3rd of global production.

Hyderabad is divided into specific clusters depending upon the sectors and the production. So, if IT absorption increases then the particular cluster may affect the cost of living but the other enjoy as usual.

As said Hyderabad is for everyone and anybody can lead a peaceful life
