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.

"A good place for shopping and food" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Shopping centres or malls are really very good in Vashi Navi Mumbai. Inorbit mall, Raghleela mall and Centre One mall are worth seeing. Also the shopping at Vashi sector 20 near Vashi bus depot is really awesome experience. Gupta sandwich in sector 17 is good place for snacks.

"City of wonders and Beautiful people" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Mumbai is the business city and also the hub of Bollywood. Hence, these two things make it the dream city with full of wonders, glamour and extra ordinary life style. Mumbai's only successful transportation is its lifeline cum hardline Sub-urban trains. These trains are now a days very busy and crowdy. People use to move around the city for their Job or just for fun, But they need to go from one end to another and they will spend little money without worrying about how far is the distance. Usually average Mumbai person travels 30 miles a day in these local trains.

Taj Hotel, 1905 built, five star hotel, Gate way of India and Bombay chowpatty are prime attractions apart from various galleries and museum in the city.

The only panic thing is the over crowded places / trains and over rainy season in monsoon. It rains heavily, say 24 hours a day in monsoon. !!

"A good place for holidaying"

  • 5/7
  • Posted Oct 29, 2014
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.

"A well planned place to live"

  • 6/7
  • Posted Sep 22, 2014
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.
