By Osa Webmasterone Subscribe to RSS | July 21st 2012 | Views:

Navi Mumbai is a planned satellite city on the west coast of Indian state of Maharashtra. It was developed in 1972 as a city that resembles Mumbai. It is the largest planned city on the planet with 163 square kilometers of area coming under the jurisdiction of Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation. It has a total area of 344 square kilometers.

Navi Mumbai lies on the mainland on the eastern coast of Thane Creek. The city boundaries stretch from Airoli near Thane in the north, to Uran in the south. The area of the city is almost the same as that of Mumbai.Navi Mumbai, situated in Maharashtra, is the world's largest planned city. It was initially planned with a specific purpose to serve: to decongest Mumbai and become an alternative place for the multitudes that throng to Mumbai from all over India.

Marathi is the primary language being spoken in the area. However, English is also used extensively.

Some of the older and more populated places are Vashi, Nerul and Belapur. Some of the more recently developed areas include Kharghar, Kamothe, Koperkhairane and New Panvel.

The city has excellent motoring conditions, with numerous flyovers, broad roads, and parking lots.

There are eleven Engineering Colleges, three Medical Colleges, three Architectural colleges and a National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT). There are 128 primary schools, 80 secondary schools, and 25 colleges in the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation area. Navi Mumbai has become self sufficient in higher education facilities—only 4% students go to Mumbai for pursuing higher studies.

Navi Mumbai is one among good educational cities in India. Each node in Navi Mumbai is now self-sufficient in quality education facilities. About 22.5 per cent of the total population is school-going and adequate provision is made to absorb it in each node of the city. The city has schools that offer various syllabi - Maharashtra State SSC board, all-India Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) and Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE) boards. Just like the city is known for its schools, it is also known for excellent educationists like Fr. S. Alemida, Mr. Chabria, Dr. Kusha, Dr. Nicholas Correa, etc. Dr. Nicholas Correa has effectively introduced a child friendly learning and teacher friendly teaching where both enjoy their work with effective results. Fr. S Almeida has efficiently made sports part of the curriculum activities.

The schools in Navi Mumbai are well developed in lush green surroundings. The schools have a sprawling green campus that gives a healthy and congenial environment to the students for studying and doing other extracurricular activities. Navi Mumbai has some of the best schools in the state. The student-teacher ratio in the schools is good. Therefore, a teacher has lesser number of students to handle and hence, he can pay more attention towards each and every student of the class. The school aims at imparting the best education and knowledge to the students that helps them in staying at par with the prevailing standards.
