The amount of money (in thousands) spent by each of the friends in six cities as per the chart provided is:

After spending in Hyderabad, each of the six friends are left with same amount of money, say 'x'. 
By then Aman, Billu, Dinesh, Ekansh, Ganesh and Hritesh have spent a total of 50, 75, 100, 50, 70 and 35 thousand respectively.
Since, they are left with the same amount after this, all of the six friends must have started the tour with (x+50), (x+75), (x+100), (x+50), (x+70) and (x+35) thousand respectively.
The following table shows the amount left with each of the friends after visiting the particular cities:
