A brief history of Navi Mumbai:

Around the late 1960s, a civil Engineer Adi Kanga and some of his friends realized that Mumbai will soon be overpopulated being the financial capital of the country. They realized that it will be a difficult task to match up the infrastructure to the influx of population and came up with the concept of building a new city and named it New Bombay or Navi Mumbai.
