Navi Mumbai(Marathi pronunciation: [nəʋiː mumbəiː], also known as New Mumbai is a planned city in india, situated on the west coast of the Indian subcontinent, in the Konkan division of Maharashtra state, on the mainland of western India. The city is divided into two parts, North Navi Mumbai and South Navi Mumbai, for the individual development of Panvel Mega City, which includes the area from Kharghar to Uran, including Taloja and Old Panvel nodes strictly in the city of Navi Mumbai. Though, NMMC doesn’t include these nodes in their jurisdiction because CIDCO is currently developing them, after developing these nodes it will be handed over to NMMC. Navi Mumbai has a population of 1,119,477 as per the 2011 provisional census. It has an average city elevation of 14 meters, excluding forest area.
The area was proposed in 1971 as a new urban township of Mumbai by the Government of Maharashtra. A new public sector undertaking, CIDCO, was established for this purpose. Navi Mumbai is situated across two districts, Thane Part and Raigad. The city has been ranked 12th among 73 cities surveyed for cleanliness and hygiene by the Union Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) and Quality Council of India (QCI) as a part of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
India experienced a phenomenal rate of urban growth during the 25 years following independence and Mumbai always has had its due share in it. The population of Greater Mumbai rose from 2.966 million in 1951 to 4.152 million in 1961 and to 5.970 million in 1971, registering 40.0 and 43.80 percent growths during the first and second decades respectively. The rapid rate of growth of population, made possible by the increasing industrial and commercial importance of the city, resulted in a fast deterioration in the quality of life for the majority of people living in the city. Development inputs could not keep pace with the rapidly growing population, industry, trade and commerce. Besides, there are physical limitations to the growth of a city built on a long and narrow peninsula, which has very few connections with the mainland.
The Government of Maharashtra has been alive to the emerging problems of this metropolis. Responsible public opinion was equally vigilant and several constructive suggestions appeared from time to time in the press and elsewhere. All this helped in keeping the problems of Bombay in the forefront of public awareness.
Navi Mumbai formerly known as ‘New Bombay’, is a city on the west coast of the state of Maharashtra, India. It was developed in 1972 as a twin city of Mumbai, and is one of the largest planned cities in the world. Navi Mumbai is the only Indian city to be featured in the National Geographic Channel’s Super Cities of the World and was declared one of the best cities of the world by the National Geographic experts.
The City and Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra (Cidco) 2005, report on Navi Mumbai’s socio-economic survey has put Navi Mumbai above Mumbai in terms of monthly income per family.
Among the different nodes of the Navi Mumbai, Vashi topped the list in this category.
The survey was conducted by Pune-based Kirloskar Consultants. The report studied various ascepts such as population, economic strata, earning capacities and buying power of the people. The survey was conducted in two phases.
According to the report, the average monthly income in Navi Mumbai is Rs 12,691 which is higher than that of Mumbai. The fully developed Vashi node topped with average family income of Rs 15,709.
