Thane is a city in itself, rather than a suburb of Mumbai

The four-day exhibition of properties at Thane, organized by Maharashtra Chamber of Housing Industry, Thane unit, got off to a great start on April 28, 2007, taking advantage of the long weekend, with Maharashtra Day on May 1. The venue was packed with exhibitors as well as customers thronging the stalls, in search of the best bargain in both properties as well as financing products.
Such events provide a platform for developers to become active contributors to the city development. Developers give the public better homes, layouts and other landmarks so the government should view developer's problems sympathetically. It is only with the teamwork displayed by the state government, the municipal offices along with NGOs, environmental groups working with the developers that a city can become self-sustaining.

With regard to infrastructure, facilities, connectivity- the best of everything is available in Thane. Also the social oriented work that are taking place here including the new police station of the Thane Police.

Generally builders are area specific and real estate is largely an unorganised sector. Now the picture is dominated by professionals, with expansion to other cities being the norm.

However Thane's water, road and drainage systems need an uplift. Also more public parks are needed.

The customer gets a better deal at such events, so the importance of having such events regularly has grown.

As Thane was a competitively priced product, it prospered.
