If you dont have problems to live in Pune, Kanbay is better.

Kanbay is better interms of work environment. Both Polaris and Kanbay works in finance domain. Polaris major client is citi bank. Citi bank projects are very agressive and you will have lot of work pressure. Kanbay is more employee friendly.

In your case your packages does not have much difference. So you can ignore package.
