A relatively new city, Navi or “new” Mumbai was developed as a twin city for the commercial capital of India, Mumbai in 1972. It has since become one of the finest and largest well-planned townships of the world. For a developing country, the city perfectly demonstrates urbanisation in India. Navi Mumbai has now become a geographical part of Mumbai itself. Mumbai prides itself in the label of the “city that never sleeps”. Mumbai is the home of the country’s Hindi film industry, “Bollywood”, some of Asia’s biggest slums and the largest tropical forest in an urban zone, and provides a unique blend of uptown savviness and rural splendour.
The DY Patil Stadium is an excellently-maintained stadium and one that has remarkably been consistent in maintaining its standards.
