    Hi Everyone,
    I'm new to Joburg and am looking forward to meet some indians and make some friends.
    I moved here with my husband just 3 months back and still feel very new to the place.

    Hubs got some offer from L&T for long term project in Johannesburg, SA. Confused whether or not to accept the offer. Is R50K is sufficient for a family of 3 to have a commfortable living thr. I heard there is one Indian school there, is it CBSE? How safe is this place now?

    Hi RieRie

    I am here in Joburg for past 2yrs.I have 2kids.My daughter is studying in 4th Grade.My son is attending a pre school.As of now I did not find any CBSE schools.Where are u planning to stay in Joburg?In which place is ur hubby's office located?50K should be comfortable for a family of 3 but it totally depends on the area u choose to live in.With my experience I can tell u that Joburg is safe as long as u avoid late night drive in certain areas.
    U can PM me if u need any further information

    SA is amazingly web connected........just google the area you are going to stay & you will find lots of info about it schools, supermarkets ,hospitals............
    just remember that schooling here is one year behind India...........they will take only a child who is 6 yrs old by 1st Jan 2014 in class 1 ,otherwise the child goes to Kindergarten.

    Hi , you have to pay 25% cut off per tax , here you should have medical aid that is depends on your policy from 600 to 800 zar , it is safe but not every where , education is costly here , analysis your self and step forward
