Mira Road

Mira Road is a small town in Thane district just north of the city of Mumbai. It is part of the Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation. Mira Road is the name of a railway station on the Mumbai suburban railway on the Western Railway railway line.

Mira Road has developed gradually into an important residential locality due to its proximity to Mumbai and lower cost of living. It is situated on the island of Salcette. A marshy creek divides Mira Road from Mumbai. Mira Road is divided into two main parts, Shanti Nagar and Naya Nagar. Shanti Nagar is cosmopolitan in nature in terms of residents residing there. Naya Nagar has a majority of Muslim Residents.

Although not technically in Mumbai, Mira Road looks and behaves like Mumbai. This is so , as almost all the people living here have moved from Mumbai in seach of bigger, cheaper apartments and space. Mira road has good wide roads, but has a major Water and Transport problem. Many buildings do not have municipal water and have to make do with water transported to the buildings via tankers which is often dirty and costs more.

Mira Road has a considerable forested area. Although it is officially not under the BMC it enjoys all the facilities available in Mumbai like 24hr power supply from Reliance, Telephone services from MTNL and piped gas from Mahanagar Gas, Bus services from BEST etc. Mira Road gives substantial revenue to the Maharashtra Govt. thru taxes , specially Registration and stamp duty on new flats bought by the ever increasing number of people moving in from Mumbai. This is so as it is cheaper to buy flats and property in Mira Road as compared to Mumbai proper. Still Mira Road does not have a proper hospital, no government schools and hardly any public places, like parks , etc.

Mira Road suffers the same nightmare of travel through suburban trains(used by most residents)as faced by most of the residents outside Mumbai, but close to Mumbai i.e Dahisar, Bhayandar, Nalla Sopara , Virar, etc).There is only one railway line (dedicated towards one way – up or down) from Borivili to Virar.Almost 95 % of Mira Road residents work in Mumbai. Mira Road and its sister suburbs are in great need of more railway lines , so that 2 up and 2 down Railway lines can be operated simultaneously.

    I am a resident of Mira road and i have been here from past 14 years…
    This place didnot have much municipal water supply (because of Tanker suppliers monopoly)
    did not come in to mumbai (because the revenue collection by Octroi)
    But, this place does have some nice places
    1. Very Good Hospital (Bhakti Vedanta)
    2. College (ROyal college) the only disciplined college in mumbai, where prayers are conducted.
    3. NL Dalmiya school and management college
    4. Asmita shopping centers (3 Nos)where you can do your monthly groceries shopping
    5. CineMax theater, where you can buy current tickets . No need to wait in long queues as per mumbai.
    6. No Pollution, NO noise, No Violence.
    7. Good and safe surroundings for children to grow up from School till Graduation.
    8. No Hutments, No beggars, NO RObberies …
    9. A population of middle class, so there is no kind of Class barriers.
    10. Just need more BEST busses and also some trains to start from Mira Road. Rest all is Fine

      hi can u tell me where are good paediatrics hospitals in mira road and bhyander ? I need it for my son .

  6. saba Says:

    I am resident of mira road since 25 years.
    When we shifted to mira road it was very cool, peace and was like a foresty place but now after the construction it bcome conjusted everywhere. Builders are just going on buildings apts as they want to earn money their is no parking, garden for the residents.
    During rainy season there is no drainage facility everywhere on the raod there are water. Its very difficult during rainy seasons but this BMC is not taking serious action abt this. There should be more railway lines, garden, parking areas. Rest all is ok.
    I like Mira road very much

  7. Sanjay Pawar Says:

    I have taken 2 flats in Lavlesh Enclave almost 1 year back, in Lavlesh Enclave, Behind Deepak Hospital, Mira road (E).
    Condition of the road is so bad, we cant even walk upto the building in rainy season. So much mud is there. Builder says its a MBMC road, they will build. MBMC does not give attention to that road. Hence we are unable to shift there in our new house. We are staying on rental inspite of having our own flats.
    Please help.

  8. Priyanka Says:

    Hi, I have just taken a flat at mira road, i have not yet faced any problems yet: except the one: people over here are very aggressive standing outside the ATM’s,they r just in so much of hurry that cant wait for 5 minutes for someones transactions going on especially at HDFC Atm. ladies here dont support ladies.i dont say that there r bad people here but yes there are also genuine people here..only thing is people need to understand eachother and start leaving in peace to make it a better mera road not mira’s road.i wish all good luck to mira road. may god bless mira road.

  9. R. Menezes Says:

    The idea of three cremetoriams was distinctly the best idea. However, i have just visited the christian grave yard on 19/8/07 and its in an absolute mess. the grass is grown upto a meter and the graves of our dear ones are not visible at all. It is scary to even try and pull out the grass from the graves. Whereas the other two graveyards/cremetoriam are absolutely spic and span with all the grass trimmed. I believe that when flower plants were grown on graves just to keep it clean, the higher authorities pulled them off saying that it is not permissable. In that way it would have remained clean atleast. Can the municipal department please, please have this cleaned so that when one pays a visit to their near and dear ones, there is some respect left for them.

  10. Hi Says:

    As all ideas above conflict to each other.As other place of Mumbai ,Mira road is also same some area have good road than some have bad, some people are good so some are bad.As BMC dont do their work so same to MBMC.We cant jst blame builders,MBMC even people don’t keep their surrounding clean, this situation is not in only Mira Road but maximum area of Mumbai.
    Thats all

  12. Sujan salian Says:

    The face of Mira Road has really changed with the inception of many new facilities.
    you now have Thakur mall, Cinemax, Rassaz for shopping and watching movies.
    There are number of supermarkets and retail outlets like Reliance fresh, Subiksha ,Foodland Fresh, More for you etc.
    All leading cellular operators have opened their customer care centres in Mira road.
    Royal college is one of the best college in terms of discipline and results.
    Crematorium is well maintained.
    but still a lot needs to be done to compare Mira Road with Borivali and other suburbs thereafter.

  13. Sama Says:


    I have recently shifted to mira road. However I have just discovered that water supply is not regular in my society. I want to know if there is an option of getting 24 hr water supply or any other option. I have a storage tank but if the water supply does not come, its of no use… would be great if someone can enlighten me on this.


  14. NISHITH Says:


  15. sama Says:

  17. prateeksh Says:

    i agree with the private octroi problem in mira road. i have just shifter there and it is becoming more and more problematic. i am even charged octroi on my old furniture and used things. someone please let me know if this is allowed and if there is a way to avoid this. thanks

    • sagar bhatia Says:

      give twenty ruppees they ,ll not charge you for old furniture whn u enter miraraod just pay those idiot s 20 to 50 bucks hey,ll not even stop u i shifted last month i did the same 25 rupees he not even stopped my tempo

  18. Neha Says:

    We are staying in Mira road from last 10 months. We stay in Shanti Dham, near royal college i am enjoying the stay as there is not much pollution, population and one can relax after reaching home. Also new societies are providing small gardens in complex only and good amenities in cheaper rates.
    But the main problem which I am facing is outside our complex. Road outside our complex is worse than village roads. It is muddy with big stones and holes. Government is not bothered about making proper road but it is more like dumping ground for them. I have seen many time that trucks leave there waste material on the middle of the road because of which it becomes very difficult to drive. Even Rickshaw people don’t want to come here and if we force they charge extra for coming to such bad road. Moving out in Rain is a nightmare. Another problem is mosquitoes.
    We don’t have water or electricity problem. We have 24hr BMC water and reliance energy.
    So over all life in Mira road is cool. But please tell me what can be done about roads?

    • kumar Says:

      even we have purchased a flat in gaurav woods, any progress as to when they are giving possession?i think we should try to coordinate with maximum number of people who have bought flats in the aforesaid building and pressurize the builder to give proper feedback.

    Hi all
    I bought 2 BHK flat in mira road kanakia in society “silver oak” and shifted just 15 days back, this society is recognized as one on the best society around but the problem is crisis of water. Almost every society gets water 2 times in a day but here in sliver oak we get only once, on top on that their is no water supply almost 3 times a week and some time 2 days continuously. If i had any information on this, i would have not bought the flat in silver oak. The society says that they do not allow tanker water because of hygiene, if that’s the case then how every other society is using it ? i dont know what to do….

    Please if anybody planning to buy flat here then think 100 times before it..
