Located at a distance of 34 km from Mumbai towards the north, Malad East is a peaceful suburb that has quickly developed in recent times into a coveted destination. Geographically speaking, Malad East belongs to the Konkan region as can be seen from the native-tongue spoken by many residents there. Malad East has no fancy beginnings, nor did it undergo any cataclysmic phases of growth. Its evolution has been rather smooth.
As a matter of fact, Malad as an area, consisted of the hamlet of Orlem and other villages such as Kharodi and Rathodi, back in the 19th century. In those days, it consisted of just 12 families. But today, the packed streets of Malad show no resemblance to that era. Malad East is a vast suburb by itself, and made of many sub-areas and streets. Dindoshi Pada, Suchidham, Mira Nagar, and Sankalp Colony are a few sub-areas of Malad East that lie to the south of this locality.
Malad East is a well-developed locality that has all the common facilities required by a modern, urban population.
