    Is 47K before tax worth for an Indian to move to Lund,sweden?


Well all depends on your interpretation. I would say 47k is good salary for Lund not getting into specfics.

Tax in general is on higher side in Sweden about 33-35% roughly.

Go on the site called and check the rental rates, you'll know. Water is included, electricity is separate. Broadband sometimes is included. Since I dont live in Lund, I cannot answer more specific questions about communting or schooling. But I can tell you this much that Lund is not a very big city so communting should not be any problem.

Is it worth? I dont know, you have to decide yourself, maybe you are earning more than that in India, maybe you are earning a fraction of that in India. Also depends on your lifestyle choices.

Good luck.
