Paying guest accommodations—PGs as they are known—have risen to prominence in the recent past. There are still a lot of people, both working professionals and students, who like and prefer hostels when moving away from their homes. However, few can overlook the advantages of staying in a PG. You can almost describe it as a “home away from home”. PGs outweigh hostels in a handful of aspects, with independence and comfort being the most fundamental and tangible of them.
The capital of India, Delhi, is strewn with PGs for all kinds of people. There have been newspaper reports indicating the growing demand for PGs among students and working professionals, which consequently has led to an inflation in rents.
But read on… to comprehend why paying “a little extra” will definitely be worth it!
If you have moved to Delhi recently or are planning to soon, you have plenty of PG options to choose from. There are PGs for a single occupant, a duo looking to share one and PGs for females. You may choose to pay the security deposit before you move in, though it is unnecessary in most cases.
Here comes the real deal, however!
Almost all PGs are furnished and maintained cleanly, with the occupant having to buy very few commodities—depending on what is provided at the PG— before he/she actually moves in. Adequate water supply, AC, optional breakfast and meals, parking facility and many more amenities make PGs in Delhi very comfortable to live in and you will definitely feel at home.
Electricity and water bills are usually exclusive of the rent you are quoted, and you will be charged based on your usage of electricity every month.
The abovementioned amenities will make you feel comfortable and less stressed out. The conspicuous aspect is that you get to experience these facilities away from your home and you are independent too, as a single occupant. Even if you share a PG with another person, it’s a lot more convenient than what could be the case if you stay at a hostel.
Above is a list of PGs in Delhi from which you can choose based on your budget and the preferences that you might have. But the truth is, you have a lot of options and though the rent may feel higher to you with certain PGs, they are definitely worth their rent.
