Shifting is a tedious process that also includes expenses but that will not be the case for one who may decide to move to Bormida village in Italy. Instead of spending, a person who takes up residence in this remote mountain village will receive an amount of Rs 1.4 lakh approximately (Euro 2,000). This offer is an attempt by the mayor of Bormida village to attract more people to the place which is gradually turning into a ‘ghost town’ with a total population limited to only 394 – many people have left the place to find work in other cities, reported The Guardian. Daniele Galliano, the mayor of Bormida village which sits 420 metres above sea level in the north-west Liguria region, is also offering homes at rent starting from Rs 3,500 approximately (Euro 50) per month.

The mayor in his Facebook post, however, mentioned that at the moment the idea is just a proposal and the cash offer still needed to be approved by the local council. But if all goes ahead, anyone who transfers their residence to Bormida, either on rent or by buying a property, will be gifted the mentioned amount of money. Further mentioning the low-rent scheme, he shared that it should be in place within the next two months, under which a small property will cost just Euro 50 a month while a more spacious one will be no more than Euro 120.

This post by Galliano immediately received attention and was flooded with positive responses from potential new inhabitants. People appreciated it and asked for further details. While many said they are ready to move in, some put up their conditions before shifting like they would like to renounce the cash gift in return for a job in the town! The post has been shared by over 300 Facebook users and received over 3,600 reactions so far.
