The KDMC has decided the fate of 27 villages within it's jurisdiction. While nine out of them will continue to stay within the limits of the Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) the other 18 villages will have a separate municipal (civic) council.

The other nine namely Aajdegaon, Sagaon, Nandivli, Panchanand, Dharivli, Sandap, Usarghar, Katai, Bhopar, Deselepada will stay with KDMC as they have witnessed rapid urbanisation for the last five to ten years.
