Tarun Singh Chauhan who is the founder of brand consulting firm-TSC, had shared his ideas, strategies and importance of city branding. Municipal commissioner- Sanjay Katkar has directed all head of departments (HoD) to compile data of all civic properties and other related details of public places and submit them to city engineer- Deepak Khambit who has been appointed as the nodal officer for the “City Branding” project which will be implemented under the aegis of the newly established innovation cell.

Spread across an area of 79.4 sq.km the twin-city having Mumbai, Vasai-Virar and Thane as its neighbouring cities, is a blend of urban, rural, coastal and industrial areas.
