I know we generally use in for "city, town and country ". But I am confused about when "the country " follows "the city". Which one should we use?

1) I live in Mumbai in India.

2) I live at Mumbai in India.


I live in Mumbai, India. no need to put other words between country and city.

    It's "in" Mumbai. You could say "I live in Mumbai, which is in India"--one might do that with a small town where the listener or reader might not know the country. Mumbai is well-known, though. – Xanne Jun 28 '17 at 7:48
  • @Xanne What's the problem if I say number (1)? – rzd85 Jun 28 '17 at 8:54
