I am being offered a job at Mumbai at the company's Vikhroli facility. I am currently at Pune and will have to relocate. I was at Mumbai for about 4 months in 2004 (used to stay at Thane and commute to Patni's facility at Vashi, at the station complex) but that would hardly have given me any insights in to Mumbai life. I would appreciate some inputs from Mumbaikar Ranchers on the following:
1) Which is the best place to live with familiy nearby Vikhroli (I would love to have the one-way commute < 45 minutes)? I would need a good 2BHK accomodation in a decent society (of course, affordability is also a factor).
2) What is the range of rent/deposit for a 2BHK & 1BHK accommodation?
2) Please also suggest good CBSE Schools nearby this locality (for my Son for Class -2)?
I am resident of Thane and was working with one of the companies in Vikroli. I used to travel by my own vehicle from Thane to Vikroli and never faced any traffic issues b'coz the travelling is mainly on eatern express highway which doesn't have traffic issues.
You can try for Bhandup location which will be near to vikroli and at affordable price. There are many residential complexes have came up in Bhandup. Else you can also try for Thane somewhere near to check naka...There are one residential complex in Thane W near Mulund checknaka called "Kashish Park", there you can get a flat on rent at reasonable price. Otherwise in thane west normally you will get a 2BHK flat on rent in range of 15K-20K with 10 months advance deposit. You may get a flat at cheaper rent, if you try for Ghodbunder road.
Thanks. I used to live at Vasant Vihar at Thane and am familiar with the Godhbunder road area. What is the approximate commute time/distance from this area to Vikhroli? Any idea about Powai, Mulund areas, I heard they are also nearby Vikhroli.

I used to work in Powai and used to travel from Dadar to Powai by Vikroli or Kanjurmarg. There is big problem of traffic from Powai to Gandhinagar ( which is between Vikroli and Kanjurmarg). There is one more small road to go to Hiranandani powai from Vikroli which goes from cafe coffee day near Accenture. But traffic problem is more or less same near Kailash Complex on this road.
I would suggest search in Bhandup, Mulund or Thane you will get in affordable rate.
