Andheri, Jogeshwari and Khar

See also the document on the Northern Suburbs.

The development of Andheri and the adjoining regions was set into motion around 1915, when the Western Trunk Route, from Bandra was extended to Jogeshwari. Records from 1921 show that of the 4000 approved building plans in that year, a substantial number were in Andheri and Khar. By the 1930's the areas had been laid out in roughly the pattern seen today. Khar, Andheri and Jogeshwari were then administered by a Collector in charge of the "Suburban District". With the creation of Greater Bombay in 1945, the administration was merged with the rest of Bombay city.
