Bhandup is a suburb of Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, in the state of Maharashtra, India and is also the name of a railway station on the Mumbai suburban railway on the Central Railway line.


Like most suburbs in Mumbai, Bhandup has two sub-regions, Bhandup (west) and Bhandup (east), so named for their location relative to the dividing railway line. The more developed Bhandup (west) is characterized as an industrial suburb while the upcoming Bhandup (east) is considered to be more residential. Traditionally, Bhandup has been well-known for its sea water salt extraction, and to date these facilities can be found in the suburb.

The first train that ran from Victoria Terminus to Thane halted at Bhandup station, in order to have its engines watered.

Bhandup is also home to Shivaji Talao, or Shivaji Lake, which apparently has some connection to the great Maratha ruler, Chhatrapati Shivaji. Currently, in a bad state, the pond witnesses hordes of Ganapati devotees immersing idols of the elephant god during the August month.

Before real-estate prospered 40 years ago, Bhandup was a dense forest area, which was home to many thieves and criminals. Rival gangs were at constant war to gain an upperhand in the extortion rackets. However, strict police action saw these gangs moving to international destinations.

Approaching Bhandup

Bhandup now, is the third last station on the Central Railway main line, the last two being Nahur and Mulund. A few fast trains stop at Bhandup station, mostly during the peak hours. Bhandup is extremely well connected with the rest of the city through a dense road network. Only 2 buses (No.445 and 603), however, pass through Bhandup East, as the area is relatively sparsely populated (most of the land in Bhandup East is owned by the Salt Department of India. The arterial road of Bhandup West is the Agra Road, while Bhandup East is flanked by the Eastern Express highway.

Progress of Bhandup in recent times

ALthough large tracts of Bhandup East remain unutilised, Bhandup West is amongst the most populated areas in Mumbai. A huge mall – Dreamz – and 5 ~20 floor buildings are coming up speedily in Bhandup West. The suburb however lacks good entertainment and recreational facilities.

    I am a resident of Joy Homes Station Road, Bhandup(w)
    I hav been there from last few months, and facing a very critical problem.
    during light cuts in bhandup.. no temporary lift facility is provided in apartment..
    And this is a 15 floor building..
    Now everyone can imagine the harrasment faced by us.
    and usually those light cuts occur in morning hrs in between 7am to 11am
    As we have complaintd a no. of times.. bt all in vain.
    Dont know..what to do now

    • Bipin Says:

      Hi Pooja,

    I was born and brought up in Bhandup East
    I love Bhandup! however past 10 years i live in US so i am not sure was has changed.I have been there 2-3 times saw new constructions around.did not get a chance to go to the malls and railway station.This year i will go and take all the pictures of bhandup as much as i could.
    Regarding the power cuts,its such a pathetic thing.People are suffering so much and they goverment is doing nothing about it.This needs to stop.If you want to cut the power cut it for yourself first dont cut for janata janardan.That too they are selective in cutting the power.Cut the power of Bollywood studios and sets.Cut the power of Bars and pubs in western suburbs.
