Moving from US to India

We are working couple (Engg. Manager and Architect) with 2 school going kids (3rd grade and KG). Does it make sense to move back to India without promotion? What salary range should be expected? International schools are very expensive there. Hyderabad has very limited number of International schools.

      If both earn 50L each then you can spend one salary and save the other (after taxes). I thought you both are looking to earn 50L each. Or is it your spouse doesn't want to work after moving to india?

    There’s bunch of info missing from your question- how close are you/wife for next promo, what are your experience levels, current salaries etc.

    I agree, schools are expensive in India, but salaries are really high as compared to cost of living (Im comparing these with the Bay Area salary vs cost of living).

    There are other aspects (don’t know how much do you care about it though) about life in India
    - being with parents (grand parents for kids)
    - domestic help
    - easy access to local food, places etc.
    - less stress etc
    - Hyderabad’s traffic is still better than that of Bay Area

      Both 12+ years, both earning 200k above as total comp. both 6 to 9 months away from promo. In Bay Area we have everything - house, enrolled kids in good schools, decent career. Few of things are not there - being close to parents, involvement in social issues of country and exponential career path. ( unable switch here as often I want too :) )
      International Schools in India are super expensive. 6-7lacs per annum per kid. Specially in Hyderabad no option for ICSE education.
      I am looking for following.
      1. A package - range of 50-60lacs for each
      2. Decent school in Jublilee hills, madhapur etc.
      Feedback, pointers?

    How about a move to SAP India - Did you explore if they would match up to 50-60L ?
