Bhayandar is a city in Maharashtra, India, part of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. It is located in North Mumbai and is governed by the Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) . It is also a railway station on the Western Line of Mumbai Suburban Railway.
Like all railway stations on Mumbai suburban railway , Bhayandar is divided into two parts by the rail line - East and West . The Wes was traditionally residential, and the East was predominantly an industrial area. Recent population growth and a flurry of construction has blurred the boundaries between Bhayandar and neighboring Mira Road on the East side of the rail tracks, turning it into a populous suburb. Government-owned Salt Pans and marshland in Mira Road West have restricted the southward spread of Bhayandar. There is a lot of scope for development of this land as it has the potential to house a gargantuan industrial complex.
The east Indian villages in Bhayandar are Dongri , Uttan , Pali Chowk , Tarodi , etc. These villages were formed by Portuguese travellers when Vasai (formerly Bassein) was a famous port. One route for "Essel World " is via Gorai , one of the villages close to Bhayandar. Gorai is also popular for its beach and nearby Manori beach and is a popular weekend getaway for Bhayandar residents. In the 1970s Bhayandar was a village before the builders converted the fertile farming land into a concrete jungle.
The MBMC's (Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation) main office is located in Bhayandar (West) . Various Departments like Property Tax Department, Octroi Department, M.B.M.C Transportation, Health Department, Ambulance For Emergency, Library, Water Department, Education Department, Birth-Death Registration Department, Tree-Department, Advertising Fee Department, Animals Department, Public Construction Dept, City Development Dept, Accounts Department, etc. are a part of the MBMC's suit.
