Navi Mumbai Info

  • State: Maharashtra
  • Famous for/as: City
Navi-Mumbai (New-Mumbai), formerly known as New-Bombay, is a planned city situated on the west coast of Maharashtra, in the district of Thane. Navi-Mumbai, built in 1972, is the twin city of Mumbai and is the world’s largest planned city.

Navi-Mumbai, located on the mainland on the eastern part of Thane Creek, is separated from Mumbai by the Arabian Sea. It is mostly a hilly region with many protected wet lands. Navi-Mumbai was constructed with the main purpose of unclogging Mumbai. Today it is an emerging industrial and educational hub of India.

Navi-Mumbai has a rich historical past which is intertwined with that of Mumbai.  In 1534, Navi-Mumbai came under the rule of the Portuguese who gifted this territory to Charles II. Later, the British East India Company bought this region on lease.

In the 1970s, the region of Navi-Mumbai was selected for the location of the planned city. The planned city of Navi-Mumbai was developed by CIDCO in a series of nodes or small townships. The city of Navi-Mumbai, which spreads over Thane and Raigad districts of Maharashtra, stretches from Airoli in the north to Uran in the south, with a total area of 344 sq km. Vashi and Airoli Bridges connect Navi-Mumbai to Mumbai.

The fourteen nodes of Navi-Mumbai are Airoli, Ghansoli, Kopar Khairane, Vashi, Sanpada, Nerul, CBD Belapur, Kharghar, Kalamboli, Jui Kamothe, New Panvel, Ulwe, Pushpak and Dronagiri. Vashi and Nerul are the most developed nodes, known respectively as ‘the king’ and ‘the queen’ of Navi-Mumbai.

Today, Navi-Mumbai is home to the Millennium Business Park, International IT Hardware Park, Airoli Knowledge Park and ITC Park. Navi-Mumbai is also a major BPO city in India. It  also has a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in its heart, which is expected to bring major economical and developmental changes in the city.

Situated amidst the Sahyadri mountain ranges, South Konkan coastline and the Thane creek, Navi-Mumbai is a place of natural splendour as well.  The close vicinity of Navi-Mumbai to Mumbai makes it a favourite destination of nature lovers and trekkers.

Compare to Mumbai, Navi Mumbai has good opening space with lots of fresh air to breath and appartments are bigger with inorbit mall and Raghuleela malls and number of hotel in the vicinity. One can also quickly go to Pune, Nasik and come back. So good place for holidaying.

Mumbai, the city of Bollywood and the city of my favorite Amitabh Bachchan. Their are so many places to see in Mumbai like The Gateway of India, Juhu beach, Hotel taj, Film city and Rani garden are some of the best places to visit. It has good road and connectivity. WIth the international and the domestic airport are very helpful to keep the place well connected with other places in Indian and around the world.

It's a good place. Cleaner and less polluted than Mumbai Central. It has good road connectivity with the recently build new international airport. This place is going to be much better than before. This place is well planned and congestion free.

"A nice place to stay"

  • 6/7
  • Posted Sep 18, 2014
Navi Mumbai is a place where you can enjoy nature as well as the city life. I have visted many places like central park and Pandavkhada water fall is no doubt amazing, and it makes a river of it flowing through the field across but the only drawback of the place is that it doesn't have a decent crowd visiting this place. You need to figure out a proper time and day to visit this place and that would be when the crowd is not much but neither scanty too. Place is scenic and never go too near, to the fall and the rocks, it could be very dangerous. Another point of caution would be to have a better gripped shoes as the rocks you climb to get to the falls, are very slippery. It's on only during monsoon, 3 months at the most.
