30 rats a day

No, that's not my kitty's diet. Instead, it's the daily quota for each of the 480 rat-catchers employed by Mumbai's municipality, for which they get Rs 133 a day. (That's Rs 4.43 per rat, or approximately 10 cents, for those of you who are USD-inclined.) Not the most enthralling of jobs.
