Thane is one of the suburbs that are also coming up. But compared to others is it well equipped in terms of planning, development and infrastructure?

    Thane is a mini city on its own. Kalyan and dombivali may develop like Thane suburbs. The east west fusion where hirco has got land on ghodbunder road (not hiranandani estates, but beyong parsvnath) is also exciting. The whole patch is being encroached by byukder and they will soon reach mira road.

    I agree to it wadia, Thane is a mini city on its own and has seen a lot of change in the past few years. Now with demand for real estate, Thane has been one of the hot spots for residential purposes.

  • Thane is overrated and way too expensive

    Thane used to be a good city to live in few years back but no longer is because

    1. Commuting from all the commercial locations in Mumbai to Thane is a nightmare.

    2. Except for the Thane Belapur road (which is very narrow at kalwa and is used mostly by trucks), you want to go anywhere, you need to pay huge toll!

    3. Thane has grown too fast and has many problems including not having its own dumping ground. Hence a city that was once awarded for being cleanest is one of the dirtiest (Do not fall for the image you get on the highway passing through Thane)

    4. Most projects in Thane are on GB road or far off places which take a long time to reach

    5. Most projects in Thane are huge complexes where the carpet area to charged area is very low. Amenities are used to attract buyers but these are not sufficient for the number of buildings in the complex and hence there are major problems of maintenance and fights among residents.

    6. There is water problem even in most reputed complexes of THane on GB road

    7. Many projects are next to open nullahs and not fit for residing (surely not after paying the huge price) - these include Vasant Lawns, Lodha Luxuria, Tarangan etc.

    Now you are likely to say but this is true about many other places in Mumbai (except the commute perhaps). Yes, it is probably true but it is useful to know the reality and then make an informed choice instead of falling for the marketing gimmics of builders.
