The city has been planned and developed by maharashtra city and industrial development by maharashtra city & industrial development corporation ltd ( cidco ) . Cidco built the new metropolis atop vast stretches of paddy fields , mango plantations , salt pans , brick kilns and what constituted a fisherman’s paradise along the 30 km coastline originally inhabited by the agris , kunbis & kolis . Their gaothans remain in the midst of steel and concrete of navi mumbai. The city is divided into several nodes spanning a 35 km north to south distance of which digha , dahisar , airoli , ghansoli , turbhe , kopar khairane , vashi , sanpada , nerul , and CBD belapur including kharghar , kamothe , new panvel , kalamboli , ulwe , pushpak , and dronagiri fall in raigad district.

What navi mumbai could do with more of cultural spaces theaters , libraries , auditoria , museums .
