What is the typical security deposit for a rental?

The typical security deposit for a rental property in India, varies from state to state and city to city. In Bangalore, for example, the typical security deposit is usually 10 times the monthly rental. In Mumbai, this is usually 4-5 times the monthly rental.  There is legislation in the making, the so called model tenancy law, that might cap such security deposits to 2-3 times the monthly rental.
