Mumbai City

The sprawling metropolitan, by the Arabian Sea also known as the commercial capital of India is dream city for those who aspire to be at the acme of entrepreneurship.

It won’t be exaggeration to term Mumbai as the most happening city of India. Housing the top industrial houses of India from Ambanis to Tatas, the IIT Mumbai can be rightly termed as the cradle of the entrepreneurs in the City of Enterprises.

By virtue of coastal location the local weather is marine type. Warm through out the year with temperatures remaining between 200 to 400 C for most part of the year. Agony of the monsoon clouds, due to their failed attempts to scale the Western Ghats, leads to heavy showers and uncommon cloud bursts.
