Navi Mumbai Info

  • State: Maharashtra
  • Famous for/as: City
  • District: Thane
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.

My visit to Palmbeach Road, Sanpada, Navi Mumbai was a pleasant experience with spacious roads surrounded by greenery, abundance of sun, fresh air & best in class recreational avenues.
The cosmopolitan twin city has a good mix of Maharashtrian, Gujarati & SouthIndian population comprising a huge business & service community.
The twin city boasts of fruits, vegetables, grains & spicies market @ APMC catering to Mumbai & nearby locations.
The Palmbeach Road has become a much sought after residential destination of the rich & affluent wishing for peace & comfort while staying close to Mumbai.

"Overall, a good experience"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 3, 2016
The overall experience was very good. We are completely satisfied by the trip. Basically we went there for a change. Did not meet any relatives or friends. It was just to relax and spoil ourselves by taking massages and all. Good trip. No regrets. Looking forward for some more of this kind in near future too.

"Well planned city, calm and not crowded"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2016
Navi Mumbai does not have much things to have fun when compared to Mumbai. City is well planned and not much crowded, it is very calm and everything seems to be far from each other. Still the city is under development probably after two more years might be a good place to hang around, for now it's boring.

"A dream city!"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 23, 2016
What should I say about Mumbai? I cant put my feelings into words. For some people it is the place where they earn and feed the rest of family of them and working hard continuously and died. But for some people who have guts to do things differently they turns them into milestone from zero to millennium, overall a nice city.

"Cool place to go"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jan 25, 2016
Navi Mumbai is a nice place. Cool and calm away from urban hectic. One gets relaxed and enjoys the beauty of nature. There are some hills in new Mumbai but recently the entry is closed. There are tall buildings also. There are some eateries too.

"Awesome place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 17, 2016
I visited this place and I loved to spent time there. It was just an beautiful place, the locality of that place was an enjoyable time. There was many things to learn there and best way to use your time and make it worthwhile. The cost of living was bit high as of our normal living from home station. Best summer vacation over there to have fun with families and friends or a best friends group as I have done.

"Nabi Mumbai is a good destination"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Dec 18, 2015
Mumbai is one of the best city in India. Many actors of India reside in Mumbai like Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Shahrukh khan etc. The memorable place of Mumbai are gateway of India, water park, Taj hotel, hanging garden, so many place are there. Mumbai is a excellent city to travel. Navi Mumbai is a good destination, all offices are located in Navi Mumbai, if you want to enjoy personal holidays when on official duty, hotel golden tulip is a best location, you can complete office work on one side and personal holidays on other side.
