It handles 70% of India’s international business and has headquarters of most of the nationalized banks of the country. Mumbai as a city has already achieved a lot of success in terms of economic output. By the time when IT revolution began in India in late 1990s, city’s infrastructure was already over-saturated. Land area was congested, entire city was overpopulated and Real Estate Market became expensive.

    Capgemini has one the biggest campus in India at Airoli, whereas Accenture also has big software development centers here. Due to this unprecedented development in IT sector, Real Estate sector is also on a high here. Real estate prices have skyrocketed in Airoli and adjoining areas.

      3. Ghansoli
      4. Vikhroli
      5. Navi Mumbai (Nerul and Belapur)
    Predominantly located across Mumbai till Dahisar/Thane and Navi Mumbai till Belapur except Eastern suburbs.

    Industrial Zone in Mumbai –

    The city houses important financial institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India, the SEBI and the corporate headquarters of numerous Indian companies and multinational corporations. It is also home to some of India’s premier scientific and nuclear institute like BARC, NPCL, IREL, TIFR, AERB, AECI, and the Department of Atomic Energy. The city also houses India’s Hindi (Bollywood) and Marathi film and television industry.

    The MIDC (Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation) has developed Industrial zones in various parts of Mumbai. MIDC is the largest industrial zone in Mumbai’s northern suburb of Maharashtra. It covers an area of more than 20 square kilometers, hundreds of different size foreign and local factories located here.

    MIDC industrial area has obvious geographical advantages, it is very close to the South Mumbai seaport, Mumbai International Airport, which is convenient and has a speed advantage on logistics. In the MIDC industrial estates land, fuels, electricity, water and select raw materials are provided at subsidized rates to priority sector productions / companies.

    Accordingly for the purpose of the revised industrial location policy, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region has been divided into the following zones: –

    Zone I:- Greater Mumbai and areas of Thane Municipal Corporation and Mira-Bhayander Municipal Council

    Zone II:- Kalyan and Navi Mumbai Municipal corporations, Ulhasnagar, Ambernath, Kulgaon-Badlpaur Municipal councils, Bhivandi and Uran sub-regions.

    Zone III:- Remaining areas of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, excluding areas covered under Zones I and II above.

    Suitable transport and communication facilities are also made available and other conditions are being made favorable for efficient and qualitative industrial productions. Entrepreneurs, laborers and suppliers are now able to identify their ‘interest areas’ easily and can thus have easy access to industrialists. The emphasis here is on tiny, small and medium scale industries as they are high priority undertakings according to the government’s policy. These enterprises are defined by the Indian government according to their investment in plant and machinery.

    Business Houses in Mumbai –

    Mumbai is the financial capital of India. Hence it makes sense that some of the biggest business tycoons in the country consider Maximum City as their home. However, so do 1.84 crore other people, according to the 2011 census.

Here are some of the most expensive residences of India’s business tycoons. And some of them really went all out. Check out some of the most expensive homes these business tycoons own in Mumbai.

    Unsurprisingly, the number one spot for the most expensive residence in the world goes to the Mumbai home of India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani. In fact, Antilia is the second-most valuable residential property in the world, only being beaten out by UK’s Buckingham Palace.

    Even still, it continues to carry the world’s most valuable private residence, which is also the largest and most elaborate. Located in Mumbai’s Altamount Road neighbourhood, Antilia is 750-feet tall and has 27 stories with extra-high ceilings. According to Architectural Digest, Antilia is spread across 400,000 square feet and it boasts of amenities such as three helipads, a 168-car garage, a ballroom, 80-seat theatre, terrace gardens, spa and a temple.

    1. Kumar Mangalam Birla – Jatia House

    When the Jatia House, located in Mumbai’s Malabar Hills neighbourhood went on sale in 2015, the Aditya Birla Group chairman made a record deal in its bid. He paid a whopping ₹425 crore for the 30,000-sq-feet mansion.

    It faces the beautiful Arabian Sea and is the private residence of the Birla family. It is reported to have 20 bedrooms, with wall cladding and ceilings made of Burma teakwood. It also boasts of a central courtyard and a garden that opens up to a pond. It originally belonged to the Jatias of Pudumjee Paper Mills-fame, who bought it from Meher Cawasji Vakeel in 1972. MP Jatia, the mills founder had reportedly moved from Burma to Mumbai in 1964 and wanted to replicate his home here.

    1. Sajjan Jindal – Maheshwari House

    Before Kumar Mangalam Birla’s deal, it was Sajjan Jindal who paid the most amount of money for a house. Back in 2011, the chair of Jindal Steel paid ₹400 crores for the Maheshwari House. Located in Mumbai’s Napean Sea Road, the Maheshwari House is spread over a little more than an acre and three stories.

    1. Cyrus Poonawalla – Lincoln House

    If you’ve ever passed by Breach Candy in Mumbai, a massive yellow castle-like structure must have surely caught your eye. This property was originally built for the Maharaja of Wankaner, HH Sir Amarsinhji Banesinhji and his son. In 1957, it was leased to the US Government and served as the Consulate General in Mumbai.

    However, in 2015, Cyrus Poonawalla, Chairman of the Poonawalla Group, bought it for residential purposes. He paid ₹750 crores for it, which was lesser than the asking price, but it still became the most expensive residential property transaction in Indian history back then. The 2-acre grade-III property at Breach Candy has a built-up area of around 50,000 sq ft. However, even five years later, the Poonawallas have still not got full possession of this historic property due a dispute between the Maharashtra government and the Union Defence Ministry over the ownership of the land.

    1. Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal – Gulita

    When India’s richest business tycoon’s daughter got married to the heir of the Piramal ground, the most lavish festivities followed. In 2012, Ajay Piramal, the head of the real estate arm of the Piramal Group bought off Gulita, a bungalow located on Worli Seaface from Hindustan Unilever for ₹452.5 crores, as reported by India Today. This property was united by HU as a training centre for their executives. However, once Isha and Anand tied the knot, his parents gifted this Worli bungalow to the couple as their new home.

    Spread across 50,000 square feet, this bungalow features a sizeable entrance lobby. The five upper storeys have a living room, dining halls, triple-height multi-purpose rooms, bedrooms and circular studies. All of which have floor plates ranging between 8,700 square feet and 12,300 square feet. Apart from these rooms, the bungalow also houses lounge areas, dressing rooms and servants’ quarters at different levels. It also has three basements, one of which is reserved for services and the other for parking. The top basement has a large lawn, a pool and a double-height multi-purpose room (the kind where formal and special events could be hosted).

    1. Godrej Family – Mehrangir Bungalow

    Another business tycoon family worth mentioning, in regards to expensive properties owned in Mumbai, are the Godrejs. This iconic bungalow was once home to the visionary scientist, and father of India’s nuclear program, Homi Bhabha. This bungalow was left in custody of the NCPA after Bhabha’s death and the organisation auctioned it back in 2014.


    It was bought by Smita Crishna-Godrej, sister of Jamshyd Godrej for a staggering ₹372 crores. The 17,550 sq-ft mansion near Kamala Nehru Park on Malabar Hill is called Mehrangir, because it’s a combination of names of Bhabha’s parents name, Mehrbai Jehangir. Two years after its purchase, this bungalow was reduced to rubble. It, however, remains unclear whether this plot will now be used for the Godrej’s private residences or will be turned into a sky scrapper.

    Trombay is a northeastern suburb in Mumbai , India, with Mankhurd  as the closest railway station on the Harbour Line  of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. Trombay was called Neat’s Tongue because of its shape. Once, it was an island nearly 5 km East of Mumbai and was about 8 km in length and 8 km in width. The island contains several ruins of Portuguese churches from the 1620s and 1630s. In 1928, the Great Indian Peninsular Railway opened the Trombay-Andheri line called the Salsette Trombay Railway or Central Salsette Tramway.

    Being in a secluded end of Mumbai, the Indian Navy set up a small base there mostly for administrative purposes. This was soon followed by the setting up of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, the single foremost research institution in India. This was followed by NTPC setting up a storage and administrative facility. In the 1960s, with industrialization picking up in India, many companies found Trombay to be an attractive place for setting up factories, especially due to the proximity to the sea. Burma-Shell was one such company, which was soon followed by BPCL and later FCI.

    In the 2000, the nationalization wave swept India, and Burma-Shell became part of BPCL. FCI was split and the Trombay complex became Rashtriya Chemicals & Fertilizers. All of a sudden, Trombay was thrust into the spotlight for being an industrial suburb which was a far cry from the actual reality. The non-industrial Trombay during this time remained as sparely populated as ever.

    Starting out as an industrial area, Trombay is still known more for its industries than a residential suburb but this is fast changing. Trombay has a cosmopolitan population that is dominated by Tamilians and Maharashtrians followed by Keralites, Punjabis, Sindhis and Gujaratis.
