No wonder why people are dying because of serious health issues like cancer and all, one can not do development by harming the nature, nature will be answering in other ways and that everyone would have to suffer.
#Superman on Apr 22, 2019 :
April 21st night the air was not capable for anyone to breathe as this odour was terrible and this will lead to certain disease condition in comming days.Urgent actions should be taken by the government to look after the industrial area near kharghar taloja. At lease some instant action can force them to treat these gases before leaving itbout
#Anonymous on Mar 22, 2019 :
air pollution increases day by day in kharghar area due to taloja MIDC Industries.major problem faces at night strong chemical odour causes to breathing problem which leads to one taking action against chemical industries urgent action required by authorities.
#Sridhar on Dec 23, 2018 :
Kalamboli Kharghar and Taloja nodes are facing serious health issues due to Taloja MIDC industrial pollutants. Major players like CIDCO MPCB are non responsive on such serious health issues. Rampant discharge of effluent chemicals in Kasardi river is adding to the problem. Pungent odour leads to respiratory complications and burning sensation of eyes. Its high time National green tribunal and Pollution control boards take stringent actions.
#Sushil kumar on Dec 13, 2018 :
The authorities are requested to combat the air pollution to satisfactory level. The people life has become hazardous due to very poor air quality. It is shame that most cities in India are highly polluted comparatively the world.
#Anonymous on Dec 05, 2018 :
Please move all factories from Kharghar n Kalamboli otherwise people will die soon
#Gargi on Nov 18, 2018 :

#Anonymous Kharghar Resident on Nov 03, 2018 :
There's a chemical stench in the air and we can't dry our clothes in open balconies at night. Constant burning of fields, or garbage and no regular garbage collection or segregation for recycling.
#Anonymous on Oct 31, 2018 :
Pollutants in navi Mumbai is chemical gases coming from the industry and people of navi Mumbai developing lung cancer after 2 to 3 years of exposure.
Hopeless helpless educated people.

#Anonymous on Jun 29, 2018 :
Due to this air pollution you will either die of lung cancer or tuberculosis. Stop air pollution.
#Rajendra on Apr 04, 2018 :
This Kharghar area sucks big time. It's so polluted, the air - you can't even breathe. What do we do? Who's gonna help us? These questions are really something which needs an answer.

Guys please respond n let's do something. Join this group -
#Joseph on Mar 27, 2018 :
Air pollution levels in Kharghar sectors 30-36 are still very bad. There is no improvement in the situation. Night time air is laden with dust that is black in colour. By morning one can see a sheet of black dust in the balconies and living rooms.

Urgent action required by authorities.

#JSD on Feb 28, 2018 :

#Anonymous on Feb 27, 2018 :
Yes navi mumbai airport work is buzzzing on by making so much bomb blast on ulwe hills on daily basis, these are extremely hazardous practices going on just because of few politicians has announced the 1st flight will take off in 2019.
#Anonymous on Feb 27, 2018 :
Air quality in navi mumbai is the most important issue and has to resolve as soon as possible and it's already too late to react on this issue but the air quality will kill the lives of so many if it is remained ignored..also ulwe navi mumbai air port work is going on superbly but it is affecting the health of voters and what if the firat plane will take off from the first runway of navi mumbai airport in 2019.. On the contradict voters will vote former government if the the airport work is taking the place on the thousands of graves
#Ritik on Feb 11, 2018 :
At night in vashi it is so polluted that only fog we can see on the roads at vashi apmc side all the pollution is coming from midc factories
#A on Feb 08, 2018 :
Fog is seen in the morning in Cbd and vashi areas
Air pollution suspected
#Paaras on Feb 08, 2018 :
In Kalamboli KL1, Navi Mumbai water supply at home is very polluted, it smells like gutter water so people keep their tap open for first 1hour or so until bad smell from water gets reduced.
In Kharghar, in the canal chemicals waste from factory is added during night time and it smells like a hell.

NMMC wants us to vote Navi Mumbai for #1 cleanest city. Isn't that a joke by corrupt Govt body.
It won't surprise us if BJP gives the award to Navi Mumbai for cleanest city.

NOTE: Water pollution is HIGH in Navi Mumbai not moderate.
#Ashish Korg on Jan 17, 2018 :
No politician ,no people's representative wants to take this issue up.why would anybody care unless the people in their own homes start dying of asthma ,cancer,heart disease as a gift of air pollution.
#Poonam on Nov 10, 2017 :
There was very nauseating smell day before yesterday and even today after 6 pm in Kharghar. We closed all our doors and windows and had to start AC to remove it. It came from Taloza. It is really a thing of concern. Does anyone has idea what steps can be taken to control the situation.
#Kavita on Nov 09, 2017 :
Air quality here is horrible. Why is the government not shutting down the chemical industries responsible for it. We just can't open the windows between 6pm and 7am.
#Anonymous on Nov 08, 2017 :
Klins are killing us....In kamothe making baking of bricks......I am having some ailment in my eyes due to pollution..
#Kumar on Oct 18, 2017 :
Today in kalamboli, air quality was very poor as usual But who cares. As usual blame is on people. Do not use own vehicle, don’t fire crackers.
#Poonam Goyal on Oct 08, 2017 :
I dont get it... Y ders no action taken against this steel yard waste which is murdering us daily... v cant breathe n v spend rs. 80 for drinking water....

#selvaa on Feb 20, 2017 :
what is meant by swatch Bharat and swatch Bharat tax when the people and their children are not able to breath fresh air. Clean India should not include only making toilets, but also should consider air and water pollution
#Santosh on Jan 31, 2017 :
Environment of Kharghar is killing many peoples due to chemical pollution, no body is united against it
#manikin patil on Jan 14, 2017 :
air pollution is toooooooo high in kamothe.. taloja..kharghar. .kalamboli. If you put a white cloth at night in gallery and you white cloth becomes black in morning and dangerous smell comes if you open windows after 6pm till morning 7am. These areas are dangerous to leave. Please don't buy property if you are concerned about your family health.
#Anonymous on Jan 04, 2017 :
Pls look at the air quality n pollution level measurment chart given at the bottom of the page in below link..
Today itself the level shown by d purifier was 400+
#Naqvi on Jan 04, 2017 :
@ shriharsh
You r staying at palm beach road.. might be there the air quality is better..
But here in Kalamboli, roadpali n kharghar area its just miserable.
It was difficult to stay a night with open window. We bought air purifier. Where the pollution level above 100 is considered hazardous.. the level of air pollution is between 350-450 during evng night n early mrng... extremely dangerous!!!
#Naqvi on Jan 04, 2017 :
We shifted here in amarante last month from andheri totally unaware of d situation from before.
These smell n pollution level has made life miserable.
Indeed we r giving slow poision to our kids by making them breathe such air.
Few ques..
How can authorities remain immune n dumb when ppl r complaining? U can see online complaints dating back to 6+ yrs
Why still no chk has been taken against d industries releasing such posionous gases?
Why r ppl not joining hands agaist such a big issue n not giving a proper fight back?
Why r most of d ppl just bearing in d name of bad smell n suffocation? Might be they r unaware of d actual seriousness of the issue..
#Anonymous on Dec 30, 2016 :
Maharashtra has destroyed a huge number of forests surrounding the Western Ghats.

Kerala and Karnataka have preserved the forests in Western Ghats and their coastal stretch is green and maintained very well.

This is the reason for Navi Mumbai's air being Very Highly Polluted.
#Anonymous on Dec 30, 2016 :
I am surprised that being a planned coastal city, Navi Mumbai's air is Very Highly Polluted.

Just imagine, when a planned city is so badly polluted, what could be the air quality of other Indian cities.

These are statistics from WHO and CPCB, and they are very accurate.
#Arjun on Nov 25, 2016 :
Air pollution in kamothe is very high even if u walk in home bare sole ur sole becomes black and it's purely black need to work on it and find the solutions if someone interested we together can do something....
#Laxminarayan Gupta on Nov 19, 2016 :
Excessive pollution in Koparkhiarne sector 11 Navi mumbai due to fumes from nearby factories in MIDC.After diwali it has increased heaviliy between 8pm to moorning 5 pm.It's unbearable and the pollution is choking us.please suggest what can be done.
#Pramod on Nov 14, 2016 :
Unbearable level of chemical pollutiion in Vashi on 13thNov 2016 Night. How is this being allowed. We are exposing our children and our family to slow poisoning
Should form an immediate petition to close all the rogue industries involved in this crime and also punish the errant goverment officials who are allowing this to happen
#Kumar on Nov 13, 2016 :
Very bad smell in kharghar, may be due to chemical gases.
#Uncommon on Nov 01, 2016 :
I agree with Pratik here, i think there are some notorious Industries who are bribing officials to let this smell kill people over a period of time. Residents of Roadpali specially are suffering the most. Open your windows in the morning hours around 5.30 Am and feel the toxic chemicals in your Nose..

we should make this rascals (officials and polluting industries officials ) Sit in front of this Smoke so that they choke..
#Pratik Yewale on Oct 21, 2016 :
Every night around 2 am,the smell starts coming and we are unable to breathe properly. The smell is so strong that the throat becomes sore. I stay at The spring in roadpali kalmaboli, it's near to taloja link road, at night the industries release all the toxic gasses coz of which we have to suffer a lot. I request to the authorities to do something of this coz it's effecting us a lot.

Karma will hit back to these people who are doing all this and to the people who are not doing anything about it. Just sitting on chairs and taking bribes.
#Anonymous on Apr 20, 2016 :
It is very difficult to stay in kalamboli Taloja kamothe Khandwa colony khandeshwar Kharghar due to the air and water pollution
At night various chemicals are exposed in to air and near by mangroves and is very difficult to breathe also for the people staying in this areas
Please help us in this situation
#Monika Agwani on Mar 20, 2016 :
The air in Nawade (Near taloja), these days every night there is a terrible smell and feels heavy to breathe, apparently due to the factory emissions from Taloja. I haven't encountered that kind of air quality over a wide area anywhere in Navi Mumbai

its terrible to breathe and its unbearable ..requesting the authorities to pls take necessary action against the taloja midc industries...which releases such poisons gas eeeryday which speards so badly..and the effects last really long.

The air in Kharghar, especially in the winter nights has a terrible smell and feels heavy to breathe, apparently due to the factory emissions from Taloja. I haven't encountered that kind of air quality over a wide area anywhere in Mumbai.

There are pockets of water around sector 27 which are being polluted and squatters around here have turned vacant plots into garbage dumps.

Although there is a pretty large number of parks. They are not very well maintained. A little clean up and maintenance is required from the civic body to sort out those problems.

Water seems ok. Planning to get it tested.

It's still more open and well planned and greener than all of Mumbai.
#Hemant on Jan 08, 2016 :
Kalamboli is dangerously polluted. Administration must do something about it. Air here is hazardous. It stinks with unbearable industry odor.
#Gaurav on Dec 30, 2015 :
High air pollution in kharghar due to release of dangerous gasses from industries in taloja..those who staying at palm beach road think whole navi mumbai is like that. Please dont generalise as in your area pollution might not be there but situation is not same in every part of navi mumbai.
#shriharsh on Dec 06, 2015 :
I am living in Navi Mumbai since 2006 and know almost all parts of the city.

I am surprised to see some comments about pollution, air and quality of living in Navi Mumbai, but I would say it's very misleading. The quality of Water, Air, Pollution is very very good and Navi Mumbai recently ranked number 2 in Smart Cities. Pl have a look about Navi Mumbai thru Google Images and you will see, Navi Mumbai is better than many cities. What few people are referring pollution is due to the dust as there are many constructions going on and dust keeps travelling due to the wind speed. I live near Palm Beach Road, and we see the Palm Beach and Sea beyond this. So we never faced issues like that but some comments above are really misleading. Also in some survey, 5 years back, it was told Chembur pollution condition is very dangerous and you loose 10 years of life, if continued for 50-60 years in the city. But that too is improving. Also in Chembur, because of RCF, some coal dust and other hazardous emissions in the air were set to settle in Vashi Creek, but for some technical error, it was settling in Navi Mumbai near Vashi and Sanpada but the situation is rectified long back.

Mostly Navi Mumbai is a very planned city compulsorily segregated in sectors and then assigning gardens and important recreational facilities sector-wise. Also the city is developed in a planned phase and then you see very quality infrastructure, wide roads, always richly lighted, spacious parking options, very good and big gardens and parks, various malls numbering to 35, I guess. The city mayor is very conscious and recently we had a questionnaire sent thru all the students to their guardians for suggestions to make the city more beautiful and to improve on smart city call. There are very less crime rates and the city boasts to be maximum safe with number of quality and rich people living therein. What some people refer may be some older parts of the city, which didn't catch up with the later developments but still the same is not very discouraging.

Who ever is stepping in this city, I would say will never repent in comparison with other cities or even with Mumbai to some extent as far traffic, noise, busy day to day life is concerned.
#Meenakshi on Nov 30, 2015 :
Living in sanpada high dust pollution people use their hard money to live there and getting pollution and in country disscussion on intoleren e not on quality of people and what step can be taken
#Anonymous on Oct 28, 2015 :
air quality indicators for Navi Mumbai seem to be exaggerated...purity and cleanliness numbers are misleading
