    Hi,

    I'm not sure if its late too reply but for a family of four persons living in Kuwait would be as follows:

    Rent for a two bedroom apt KD 200/- it ranges from KD 175 to ...........In some apts the water/ electricity is inclusive of rent, some may include water but not electricity or the other way round.
    Maid from 7am until 6pm if KD 70/-. Some come for few hours to do a few chores depends on the persons needs they charge something like KD 30 min this is per month.
    Food KD 75/- the minimum or more depends on your kinda spending
    Indian schools per term KD 80/- plus transport by school bus i thinking is something like 120/- for the year.

    I guess this is a rough picture for a middle class family.. the rest i.e. clothes, social gatherings, entertainment etc depends on oneself.

    Regards,
    Anita
