India is a wonderful country of great diversity, from the exotic scenic beauty of great Himalayas with eternal snow capped mountains in the north to the luxuriant coconut groves of the Malabar Coast in the South; from the desolate loneliness of the deserts and dotted with beautiful palaces in Rajasthan in the west to the rich cultivated thickly populated Gangetic plains in the east.
It has more than 7600 km long beautiful coastline, which attracts tourists round the year. India has a civilization which is more than 5000 years old. The glories of the past stand side-by-side with wonders of modern science and engineering. India has a great and stirring past. There is indication that her future will be even greater.

NAVI MUMBAI: THE HOST CITY
Navi Mumbai is a planned township of Mumbai on the west coast of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It was developed in 1971 as a new urban township of Mumbai by Government Of Maharashtra with the assistance of CIDCO.
Navi Mumbai, located in the eastern trans harbour of Mumbai, Maharashtra, is one of the world's largest planned townships. Since independence, the decision to build a new city on the mainland across the harbour was for a specific purpose: to decongest Mumbai, an island city whose physical expansion had a limit.
Navi Mumbai has been ranked third among 476 cities surveyed for cleanliness levels as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
