Mumbai City & Mumbai Suburban
Mumbai (मुंबई), formerly known as Bombay is the capital of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the most populous city in India, and the second most populous city in the world, with a population of approximately 14 million. Briefing the historical significance of Mumbai it is known that the name "Mumbai" is derived from Mumba or Maha Amba - the name of Koli goddess Mumbadevi. In 1661, King Charles II received 'Bombay' as dowry which was later undertaken by East India Company in 1668.
Mumbai is segmented into two district regions - Mumbai Suburban district and Mumbai city district. The entire Suburban area comes under Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and remaining areas are take care by Defence, Mumbai Port Trust, Atomic Energy Commission and Borivali National Park.
Mumbai is built on what was once an archipelago of seven islands: Bombay Island, Parel, Mazagaon, Mahim, Colaba, Worli, and Old Woman's Island (also known as Little Colaba).
Mumbai has been a traditional stronghold and birthplace of the Indian National Congress, also known as the Congress Party. The first session of the Indian National Congress was held in Bombay from 28–31 December 1885. The city played host to the Indian National Congress six times during its first 50 years, and became a strong base for the Indian independence movement during the 20th century.
The 1960s saw the rise of regionalist politics in Bombay, with the formation of the Shiv Sena on 19 June 1966, out of a feeling of resentment about the relative marginalisation of the native Marathi people in Bombay. The party headed a campaign to expel South Indian and North Indian migrants by force. The Congress had dominated the politics of Bombay from independence until the early 1980s, when the Shiv Sena won the 1985 Bombay municipal corporation elections.
