When Mumbai's real estate prices began escalating during 1970s, the middle-class started moving to suburbs like Virar and Vasai. In this time Mira Road was mainly an agricultural area. In addition, being part of a Gram Panchayat, it did not really spur builders to consider large-scale development in the area. As a result, no one moved into Mira Road, within a few years however, a corporation was established and townships began developing which acted as a stimuls for progress.

By 1980, builders had started buying agricultural land and developing townships. With the Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation lending a helping hand to provide basic facilities, the population and has increased substantially over in the decade 2000-2010. The town is in close proximity to the Western Express Highway. These factors have been instrumental in the town's development into an important residential area.
