About Thane

Thane is a city in Maharashtra. It’s the administrative headquarters of a district called Thane, and resides in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The Thane creek, at the head of which the city lies, also characterizes its location. The creek starts at the Ulhas River and culminates in the Arabian Sea. The city has a part of its area on the mainland across the Thane creek, while the rest of it is located on the Salsette Island.

Thane is regarded as Mumbai’s elder sister, as a part of the Thane district, from Mulund to Sion, is given to Mumbai for the latter’s future development. It’s also popularly known as the Lake City, because it features as many as 35 lakes within its precincts. The Masunda Talao, also called Talao Pali, is among the most beautiful lakes in the city. Besides being a tourist attraction, the lakes are a source of water for both Thane and Mumbai.

Historically, Thane is a very important city. On 16 April 1854, it was the destination station for India’s first ever train, which had started its brief journey at Boribunder, today called Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, located in Mumbai. This ushered in the Railway Age in Asia.

Thane Infrastructure


The infrastructure in Thane has been up to the mark, generally, but there is a lot of scope for development, considering that the population in the region is continuously increasing.

Road, rail, and air transport infrastructure is, of course, excellent. The expressways and the railway networks link the city to other major cities across India. As the vehicular population is rising at a rapid pace, city is planning development projects in terms of flyovers, bridges, and road widening.

When it comes to power, the city has just enough power capacity to meet the needs of its residents. The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is, therefore, taking measures to achieve self-sufficiency in power. For example, TMC has made it mandatory for all buildings to install a solar water heating system.

All in all, there is a need for a sea of change in infrastructure development in Thane, and that aspect is being reflected in the measures taken by the TMC and the state government.
