View-Vikhroli railway station
Vikhroli is a suburb of Mumbai. It is a railway station by the same name on the Central Railway (main line). The station was built just before India's independence in 1947 to cater to the needs of the sprawling Godrej Complex in the vicinity. The railway line runs through the suburb dividing it into two major parts (named the 'West' and the 'East'), like many other areas in Mumbia.
Kannamwar Nagar on the eastern side of the railway station is known for buildings built by MHADA(Maharashtra Housing and Development Authority is an organisation established by the State Govt. of Maharashtra in 1977. Since then, it has been engaged primarily in constructing and selling housing to low and middle income groups in urban and semi-urban areas. It has constructed about 30,000 housing units in Mumbai).
