Pant Nagar forms the north part of Ghatkopar East, Mumbai. Most of the area was mangroves and marsh land, and was reclaimed - sometimes officially, but more often by mafia types. It is now a middle class residential and commercial area. Pant Nagar neighbours with small colonial groups, like Naidu Colony, Samata Colony and Housing Board association buildings. The Thane end of Ghatkopar Station East opens in Pant Nagar. One can go to Pant Nagar through the Patel Chowk (a minute away from the Station), near a small market. The market is situated near a tabela (buffalo and cow stable). Many of the buildings are being re-developed into fancy Steel and Glass structures. The structures in Pant Nagar are of the old industrial workers dwellings, inspired by similar mass housing structures in the erstwhile Soviet Union. There are mainly two type of structures. The older ones are 2 wings of 3 floors, with 5 residencies on each wing consisting of 1 Room, 1 kitchen and a Toilet/Bathroom. The stair way in the center of the building serves both wings and leads to a common passage way for entry. The newer ones are 2 wings of 4 floors, with 4 residencies on each wing, with everything else nearly identical to the older buildings.
