Question: why rental arrangements are known as “Paying Guests or PGs” in Mumbai? Can you give a brief historic overview about the emergence of the term “Paying Guest accommodation or PG accommodations” in Mumbai?
Answer: After Indian independence in 1947 there were very few metropolitan, big and populous cities in India. Mumbai was one of them (and in today's times it's undoubtedly the biggest metropolitan city of India, by all means). The major migration to Mumbai in 1940s and 50s was drawn by engineering companies (mills and factories) and the Indian film industry. In these two sectors many immigrants from other parts of the country started coming to Mumbai in order to try their luck, making a living and to explore their career options. After Pakistani film industry and artists shifted to Pakistan and Kolkata film industry declined, Mumbai Automatically emerged to make its place as the main centre and biggest hub of Indian Film industry immediately after the independence and Indo-Pak partition.
Mumbai (then Bombay) was a rich city during the Portuguese rule era. People had nice jobs, earnings and superb standard of living. Most of the families residing in South Mumbai (including the prosperous Paarsi community) were wealthy and had big homes and spacious flats. These wealthy and prosperous communities of South Mumbai, Nepean sea road, peddar road, Mumbai central, cuffe parade and colaba were the first in allowing the immigrant job seekers to stay in their houses as a Paying guest. This was the start of paying guest culture in Mumbai. Initially these paying guests or PG accommodations in Mumbai were offered by the rich landlords of south Mumbai but soon this PG Accommodation system spread all across entire Mumbai city and its suburbs.
By the start of early 1980, Paying guest and pg accommodations' system became an easy and comfortable business/earning model for home owners all across the Mumbai and entire Mumbai metropolitan area. Mumbai's paying guest and pg accommodation was then recognized as a sensible way of residual income by using extra room/space to the tenant by land lords. This system has now grown significantly even in the Mumbai metropolitan areas like Navi Mumbai (New Bombay), Thane-Dombivali, Vashi, Panvel, Vasai-Virar and also in the harbour line suburbs.
