Dubai seems to be growing as far as IT is concerned. I have couple of friends there. Salary you mentioned seems to be very low.

Salary is tooooo low, you can manage more than this in India then why should one go to Dubai, I think it should be minimum of 8000 AED.

And yes, medical, house, car everythig should be provided from your compnay remeber in Dubai compnay keep your passport , so you can't shift like india for better salary or something. And if you leave that company mid way then you can entered to Dubai for next 1.5 yrs ..Huh !!! so better to take excellent offer in the starting it self.
