It is a part of Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation and houses a railway station on the Western Line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. The area has seen tremendous rise in real estate development over the recent years due to its easy accessibility to the rest of Mumbai and Thane via railways and roadways and lower cost of living.
