Palghar is one such area that is near to Mumbai and provides inexpensive accommodation. It was designated as a district in 2014 and was then incorporated into the Mumbai Metropolitan Area (MMR). Palghar city, the district headquarters and the region’s largest metropolis, has piqued the interest of the most investors. However, as the city’s costs rose, numerous other neighbourhoods, like Manor, Boisar, and Dahanu in Palghar, rose to prominence as a result of developing infrastructure, industrial growth, and historical tradition.
