My wife and I are thinking of living in Velachery.  We have a budget of Rs 100,000 a month and would like to know if that is sufficient to live on.  We will not be running a car, or eating out a lot, or going to movies and neither of us smoke or drink.  So basically our money would be used for rent, bills and food.  We would also like some information on how to go about finding  decent accommodation.  I'm willing to pay between Rs12,000 to Rs 15,000 a month rent.  We would also like to know if Velachery is safe and friendly.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You will have a great standard of living in that amount.

Thanks Nash, do you know anything on the cost of health insurance?

If you are over 50 years of age, medical insurance premiums for a family of two will cost above Rs. 60000 per annum.

Thanks for your advice Nash.  If there is anything else you can think of that may be helpful to me please let me know.
