The 2011 India
India
census recorded a population of 814,655[2][3] in Mira-Bhyandar. Economic growth is led by the manufacturing sector. Bhayander
Bhayander
is divided into two parts by the Mumbai
Mumbai
suburban rail line - East and West. Mira Road
Mira Road
has seen development only in the East part, while the West part, on the other side of the railway line is covered with salt pans and mangroves. Mira Road
Mira Road
East is a predominantly residential area. Its calm, quiet surroundings and low pollution make it a desirable residential oasis. Bhayander
Bhayander
West was traditionally residential, and the East predominantly an industrial area in the field of steel utensils manufacturing. Recent population growth and a flurry of construction has blurred the boundaries between Bhayander
Bhayander
and neighbouring Mira Road on the East side of the rail tracks, turning it into a populous suburb. Government-owned Salt Pans and marshland in West Mira Road have restricted the southward spread of Bhayander. There is a lot of scope for development of this land as it has the potential to house a large industrial complex.[citation needed] Among minority languages, Gujarati is spoken by 18.13% of the population and Hindi
Hindi
by 33.90%.[4]
