Well I am a newcomer to Delhi but I spend the last three weeks looking for a furbished appartment with some local help.  At the end you discover is better to choose the accommodation close to the rings roads unless you don't mind spending more than an hour to reach destinations.

Decent ratio between price and quality will vary according to the location, but in an area 1 hour away from delhi centre could fetch easily 1.500 eu per month (all included) with security 24/7.  Better prices can be reached if you sign a long term leasing contract (minimum 1 year)

The documentation required is the passport which a copy will be sent to the local police station, plus 1 or 2 months security fee and one month in advance.

To find an appartment better to use the internet, so you can see some photos and decide if its worth visiting.

Alas... patience is the name of the game.. my solution? rent one appartment on a short lease (3 months) and keep searching...
