Since admissions process is going to be started soon in Delhi University. Thousands of aspirants come to Delhi to fulfill their dream of studying in Delhi university top colleges. They not only have to run for grabbing the seat in their favorite college but after that they had to look for house accommodation where they could stay till the time they are studying . This not only involves finding a paying guest where they could get all the facilities good food and well rooms, water and electricity facilities, near to the college etc. As the number of aspirants is increasing every year it seems that there is a positive correlation between number of aspirants and prices of stays in PGS. But students has no option but to go for paying guest accommodation till the time Delhi university construction for new hostels gets done.
The rent for the paying guest accommodation depends upon the location and facilities provided by them. Owners prefer to have boys more as their lessee than girls due to security issue or else charge high prices in girl’s accommodation. Accommodations near north and south campuses charge more prices about 6k-10k per head per month depending upon facilities provided. Same scene with Nehru Place and East Delhi areas where rent is about 6k- 10k excluding food and 10k-15k for ACs and food. Paying guest accommodation in East of Kaliash, Amar Colony or Dayanand colony range from 7500- 10k and they provide fridge , laundry , Tiffin for 2 meals and other stuff costs for 10k-15k.
Talking to a student from Gargi College who has recently changed her accommodation from East of Kaliash to Amar Colony said her life as hell in amar colony. They have tonnage everything on their food, rags, water and electricity bills, drinking water etc. Per person rent is 6000 Rs but it costs 13k including all this.
There are few things students should take care. They should try to find accommodation near their colleges which will save their time. Paying accommodation here asked for 2 months rent in advance its better you come here stay for a day in some guesthouse or hotel and then finalize .
“Place you live decide your day . All the best”
