There is scope for improvement, as always!

We have been visiting Navi Mumbai quite frequently. We stay with our daughter and son-in-law, and of course, our grandson. About 20 years back, the place was growing. It was like Bhilai, not much rush, lot of open spaces. Now, day by day it is becoming like Mumbai . The roads, the footpath must be made to international standard. Now that Navi Mumbai is competing under Swacchha Bharat programme, it must improve further. The street dogs must vanish, the spitting on the roads must stop, the littering must stop. There has to be a cultural change . . Will it be like Singapore? Let us hope, it will !!

Pleasant stay in Navi Mumbai

Navi Mumbai is a good place to visit in nearby Mumbai. Very clean and less traffic in this area. Seawood Grand Central Mall is 2. 4 km away from my hotel Ashwith Residency, Belapur CBD. The mall is very big and well decorated. There is many food court in this mall like Kfc, Dominoz, Burger king etc.

Navi Mumbai Overview

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.
