Navi Mumbai

located in the eastern trans harbour of Mumbai, Maharashtra, is one of the world's largest planned townships. Since independence, the decision to build a new city on the mainland across the harbour was for a specific purpose: to decongest Mumbai, an island city whose physical expansion had a limit. It was also earmarked as an alternate haven the state government to exercise the matching, politically speaking, hard option tfor the multitudes that thronged to Mumbai from all over India. This decision required o relocate its seat of governance along with all its important offices to this new city, and completely stop the backbay reclamation project in the island city. It did nothing of the sort. It continued with the reclamation and put brakes on the efforts of CIDCO (such as the shifting of wholesale markets).
