Regd HQ: Iswar Saran Ashram Campus, Allahabad-211004 August 28, 2007

Dr. Bhalchandra Mungekar (Member, Planning Commission) President

To All Vice-chancellor/Directors/Principals/Heads of Departments/ Members/Heads of Peoples Organisations Sub: Invitation From the President Dear Sir/Madam, I am happy to extend a very warm and cordial invitation to you and your colleagues to the 31 Session of the Indian Social Science Congress, which is scheduled to be held under the auspices of the SNDT Women's University, Mumbai jointly with Dr. Ambedkar Institute for Social and Economic Change during December 27-31, 2007 at Mumbai. `Peoples' Struggles and Movements for Equitable Society' has been chosen the Focal Theme for the Congress. 26 Intradisciplinary and 34 Multidisciplinary Thematic Research Committees shall be deliberating upon the theme. Besides, urgent contemporary issues such as global warming, and climatic change, paradigm of mal-development etc also shall be deliberated upon during the Congress. Can science help create an equitable society- a society free from economic, political, social and cultural inequalities; a society free from violation of human rights; a society free from violence and weapons of mass destruction; a society in perfect harmony with nature? This is a challenge to modern science and scientists. The Indian Academy of Social Sciences calls upon all our scientists to discover, develop and disseminate a new scientific knowledge for establishing an equitable society. The Indian Social Science Congress is open for research scientists and teachers from all branches of science. It is also open for policy makers, planners, academicians, intellectuals, social activists and for all who are deeply concerned with the Science of Nature-Man-Society. I would, therefore, request you to bring it to the notice of your colleagues and students of all Departments and disciplines and encourage them to participate in the deliberations of the XXXI Indian Social Science Congress. We shall be happy to welcome a large contingent of scholars and students from your organisation. Looking forward to a pleasant meeting, Yours sincerely, B. Mungekar President

XXXI INDIAN SOCIAL SCIENCE CONGRESS

01 PREAMBLE The Indian Academy of Social Sciences (ISSA) shall hold 31 session of the Indian Social Science Congress (ISSC) under the auspices of SNDT Women's University and Bhimarao Ambedkar Institute of Social And Economic Change between December 27 and 31, 2007 with a view to discovering, developing and disseminating science of NatureMan-Society in Indian conditions in particular, and world conditions in general, which is capable of creating a new democratic world where all men, women and children enjoy higher quality of material, social, cultural, spiritual and healthy life without fear of discrimination, oppression and exploitation while living in peace and harmony with Nature and Society.

st

02 THE INDIAN SOCIAL SCIENCE CONGRESS

Since science as an objective knowledge of living and non-living things, is social, Indian Social Science Congress strives to bring all branches of science together under its umbrella with a view to building science of Nature-Man-Society in Indian conditions in particular, and in world conditions in general. All branches of science ­ social, historical, philosophical, linguistics, juridical, physical, chemical, biological, mathematical, ecological, environmental, medical, health, agricultural, engineering, biotechnological, computer and information technological are represented through 26 Intradisciplinary and 34 Multidisciplinary Thematic Research Committees in it. Since there is no scientific literature in Indian languages even after 60 years of India's independence which has telling effect on the quality of science education and research in our country, the Indian Social Science Congress strives to produce scientific literature in forms of monographs, books and proceedings in all Indian languages. Building bridges between universities/colleges/institutes/laboratories and peoples and the society is another vital object of the ISSC.

First Indian Social science Congress was held in February 1976 at Allahabad. Since then it has been held every st year regularly. So far 30 sessions of it have been held in different parts of India and the 31 session is scheduled to be held in December 27-31, 2007 at Mumbai. Details of all the previous sessions are given on page 57. The University Grants Commission recognizes Indian Social Science Congress on par with Indian Science Congress. All the creative minds find Indian Social Science Congress as a most creative and stimulating national forum of science for creative and democratic interactions, exchanges, dialogues and discourses on all scientific issues of theoretical and methodological significance. Each session of ISSC has a focal theme and numerous other themes. A National Academic Planning Committee (NAPC) comprising the eminent scientists, social activists, policy planners, Vice-chancellors and Directors steers the formulation of details of the focal theme and academic programmes. A Task Force appraises and integrates the deliberations. Numerous pre-and-post ISSC local, regional and nationals symposia, seminars, colloquia are held throughout the year. Quite a large number of universities, colleges and institutes are actively involved in it. 03 FOCAL THEME Since the People of India are celebrating 2007 as the 150 years of their struggles and movements for freedom/independence since 1857, the Indian Academy of Social Sciences has resolved to focus the deliberations of the st 31 session of the Indian Social Science Congress on `Peoples' Struggles And Movements For Equitable Society'. A note on `Peoples' Struggles And Movements For Equitable Society' prepared by the National Academic Planning st Committee (NAPC) is given on page 10 for reference to all those who wish to write and participate in the 31 Indian Social science Congress. There shall be several plenaries, intradisciplinary, intradisciplinary and multidisciplinary, 4 http://sndt.digitaluniversity.ac

XXXI INDIAN SOCIAL SCIENCE CONGRESS

A NOTE ON PEOPLES' STRUGGLES AND MOVEMENTS FOR EQUITABLE SOCIETY

01 PREAMBLE Indian Academy of Social Sciences (ISSA) has resolved to devote the 31st session of Indian Social Science Congress (XXXI ISSC) on `Peoples' Struggles And Movements For Equitable Society' with a view to discovering, developing and disseminating a new scientific knowledge relevant to creating a new democratic global society free from hunger, poverty, literacy, unemployment and violence of any sort and where all men, women and children would be able to enjoy equally higher quality of life and live in tranquility and harmony with Nature and Society. 02 CONTEXT

The 30th Indian Social Science Congress held in December 27-31, 2006 at Algappa University, Karaikudi spent a considerable amount of time on discussing the nature of the contemporary world order, which has emerged in the recent years in the context of some of the most cherished values such as democracy, justice and equality.· At the end, a broad consensus on the following three issues, among others, emerged.

First, the already highly unequal societies are becoming even more unequal under the new global order. There are several ways in which this process is taking place. By and large, economic inequalities are increasing within nations as well as among them. In many instances, the greater economic inequalities are getting interwoven with other kinds of inequalities, particularly social inequalities of historical nature. Also, the character of some of these inequalities is getting transformed. In this context, it is important to note that although from a conceptual point of view there is a difference between inequality and inequity, they are at times closely connected. Quite often, it is the inequalities of one kind, like inequalities of opportunities, which give rise to inequalities of other kinds, like exclusions. The merging of the two notions of inequality and inequity takes place as a consequence of exclusions erroneously being perceived as actuated by some notion of deservingness rather than being correctly perceived as caused by the inequalities existing in a different domain. Second, the newly emerging socio-economic order is inimical to the existence of individual rights in any meaningful sense. This is evident in the case of economic and social rights; as it is difficult to see what meaning and significance can be attached to rights like the right to food, the right to education, and the right to health when the state has withdrawn or is in the process of withdrawing from most welfare activities relating to the realization of these rights. Even the civil and political rights are under assault the world over; partly because of so-called `war on terror', and partly because of the overwhelming dominance of market. It is also a moot point as to what meaning is to be ascribed to the collective right of self-determination under an international order where countries can be invaded and occupied at will. In this context, it is important to note that individual as well as the collective rights is necessary for the very existence of a democratic society. The same is true with respect to the goal of establishing an equitable society. In this context it is also important to highlight that the new socio-economic structures, dominated by free and global markets, as also by the multilateral treaties are intrinsically inconsistent with the democratic ideals of autonomy and decentralization.

Lastly, there was a consensus that in the present circumstances, only alternative to the regressive process of accentuation of inequalities is to create a countervailing power in the form of struggles and movements of the peoples. The significance of peoples' movements is manifold. The first and foremost, the very act of launching a movement indicates rejection of a situation which is found wanting in some crucial respects. The articulation of the reason for the rejection of a situation, if taken to its logical end, would inevitably result in affirmation of a social principle. Thus, regardless of the final outcome of a people's movement, `success' or `failure', it is likely to change, to some degree, the contours, and possibly, the framework of the social discourse, as for the participants in such movements and struggles, often the changes are rather radical. This seeks to affect one's

`Toward A New Global Society' was the focal theme of the 30th session of Indian Social Science Congress which was held from December 27 to 3, at Alagappa University, Karaikudi. 13 http://sndt.digitaluniversity.ac

Indian Social Science Congress

social consciousness which, in turn may have deep impact on one's ideas and actions in future. Therefore, even a short-lived people's movement may have powerful long-run implications. Seen in this perspective, a genuine people's movement is never a complete failure.

As discussed above, while every genuine people's movement has transformative implications for both the social consciousness of the participants and the contours of social discourse, whether a movement would be able to bring about changes in the social institutions depends on a complex set of factors; the most important of them being the appropriateness of the immediate goals in relation to the existing institutional structure. Of course, this point is relevant mainly with respect to non-revolutionary movements carried out through peaceful parliamentary means. If one accepts the viewpoint that the present socio-economic order is inconsistent with the ideals of democracy, justice and equality, then the importance of the movements cannot be overemphasized. It is for this reason that it has been decided to have `Peoples' Struggles and Movements for Equitable Society' as the focal theme for the 31st Indian Social Science Congress. It is hoped that apart from analyzing the contemporary peoples' movements from the correct perspectives, the Congress would also help initiate a long-term study of the peoples' movements from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. 03 Peoples' Movements: Some Fundamental Conceptual Questions

To begin with, one has to address the question as to which movements can be classed as peoples' movements. It is obvious that not every movement can be called a people's movement. It would be ideal if one could identify a set of characteristics, which would define a people's movement. In any case, for correct analysis of movements, the following issues appear relevant.

(i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) Purpose of the movement Articulation of social principles during the course of the movement Organization of the movement Programmes and strategy of the movements/struggles. The impact of the movement on the society in terms of realization of its objectives.

The character of a movement is partly determined by its goals, and partly by the social principles underlying these goals, the commitment of the participants of the movement; and the state, by being the main repository of coercive power. The characteristics relating to the organizational aspects of movements are particularly likely to be affected by the way the state responds to movements. 04 OBJECTIVES The XXXI Indian Social Science Congress, therefore, proposes to deliberate upon the following issues: 1. To appraise the Peoples' current struggles and movements in India in particular, and in other parts of the world. 2. To determine democratic strengths and weaknesses of peoples' struggles and movements across the world 3. To identify the features of an ideal democratic society for the future as the targeted objective of the on-going Peoples' struggles and movements. 4. To determine the short-term and long-term concerns for equitable society as reflected in the on- going peoples' struggles and movements 5. To explore and develop theoretical insights and praxis of Peoples' struggles and movements for equitable society 05 SCOPE There is a very wide scope for scientific study of peoples' struggles and movements within and outside the country. All local, regional, national and international peoples' struggles and movements for the realization of various st goals could be studied for the realization of various goals prior to, during and after 31 Indian Social Science Congress. Since the historical and social processes play a vital role in peoples movements and struggles, the same need to b studied in depth. It is quite likely that contemporary people's struggles and movements may not be found strong enough to help create an equitable society. If this is the case, then how to make them strong and effective? This too needs be addressed.

06 THE PROPOSED STRUCTURE OF THE CONGRESS AND OTHER PROGRAMMES

It is proposed to discuss the focal theme in the Congress comprehensively. For this, the presentations, discussions and deliberations during the Congress are proposed to be organized under the following five categories:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Plenary Sessions Sessions of Intra-Disciplinary Research Committees Sessions of Multidisciplinary Thematic Research Committees Symposia/Seminars/Colloquia Public Lectures PLENARY SESSIONS

The Plenary sessions shall be mainly devoted to discussing the important economic, social, political and ecological issues in the context of the peoples' struggles and movements for an equitable society. It should, however, be noted that papers dealing with important economic, social, political and ecological issues, but not necessarily in the context of peoples' movements, would also be welcome.

XXXI Indian social Science Congress

A NOTE ON THE NATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON WOMEN'S STRUGGLES AND MOVEMENTS FOR GENDER-DISCRIMINATION-FREE EQUITABLE SOCIETY

The Indian Academy of Social Science, is organizing the XXXI Indian Social Science Congress on People's Struggles and Movements for Equitable Society under the auspices of SNDT Women's University and Bhimrao Ambedkar Institute For Social And Economic Change between 27 and 31 December 2007 at Mumbai. The aim of the conference is to interrogate and disseminate knowledge needed to build a new democratic society, on the ideals of equity, peace and social justice. Within this broad framework of the conference, the Research Centre for Women's Studies, SNDT Women's University, Mumbai, will be organizing a three-day symposium on Women's Struggles and Movement for Equitable Society. The idea is to provide Women's Studies scholars and activists a forum to reflect upon women's struggles for gender justice and an equitable society. It begins by documenting the history of the Indian women's movement and also examining its linkages with the broader struggles for an equitable society. As an exercise in stocktaking, the aims of the symposium are as follows: 1. To document the historical growth and development of the Indian women's movement, since the preIndependence era. 2. To critically examine the challenges faced by the Indian women's movement in the past three decades to measure its strengths and failures. 3. To understand the theoretical and ideological basis of the feminist political actions. 4. To examine the changing context (in terms of ideology, state policies and global politics) in which feminist political actions have been enacted. 5. To understand the implications of these processes of socio-political change for the politics of the movement. 6. To introspect and examine the implications of "NGO-ization" of women's groups. 7. To devise strategies to counter the current challenges and to examine the possibilities of establishing linkages with the broader peoples' movements involving peasants, artisans, working people etc.. BACKGROUND Rooted in the social reform and nationalist movements of the 19 and the early 20 centuries, the Indian women's movement has a long history. The emergent voices from within the women's movement were often subsumed within the broader questions of the freedom movement and yet there were times when it was possible to hear protests against the prevailing gender inequalities. After Independence, these distinctive feminist voices became muted on the assumption that the Constitutional guarantees of gender equality would protect women's interests. The failure of the development policies in the post-independence era led to protest movements by various categories of pressure groups including the peasants, the tribal communities, the urban working classes and students. Women also participated in these various civil rights movements led by the left parties as well as sarvodaya groups. Soon realizing the need to establish their own distinct organizations, women moved out to establish separate autonomous spaces for themselves.

Indian Social Science Congress

These autonomous feminist groups have since the 1970s addressed questions of women's subordination under patriarchal systems across national, geopolitical and historical boundaries. The emerging feminist voices, because of their different ideological and theoretical underpinnings, developed in multiple and different directions. Despite differences, these voices had broadly located women's subordination in the prevailing production, reproduction and sexual relationships. Further in response to the lived realities of women's lives, feminist political action sought to ensure better legal protections for women and stringent implementation of law while dealing with gender specific crimes of rape, domestic violence and dowry-deaths; it also aimed at enabling women to access the existing goods and services in society. The political confrontations of the women's movement aimed at making the state more accountable for the welfare of women. As evident in the landmark Towards Equality (1974) report from India, it also articulated a critique of the ongoing development process, which marginalized women. By the 1980s feminist theorizing became more complex as a response to the prevailing socio-political and economic upheavals. Feminist theorizing increasingly critiqued the prevailing masculine ideology; it pointed to the interconnections between women's subordination and the destruction of the environment. These ideas infused the various environmental, peace and anti-nuke movements across the world. The rich variety of feminist thought during this period percolated into art, culture, religion and literature. Feminism was increasingly resonating through multiple voices. Women of colour and from developing countries were pointing to the ways in which race, class and gender were intersecting in complex ways to modify their lives. During this decade the politics of the women's movement aimed at dismantling state patriarchy by addressing poverty and development issues from the standpoint of women. Based on a conscious attempt to articulate the multiple voices of women, feminist politics critiqued the notions of dominance encoded in the construction of masculinities, which was responsible for the destruction of the environment, and armed conflicts across the world. In its confrontations in India, feminists noticed the inconsistencies in the responses of the state to the issues raised. They found that the state was quick to enact stringent amendments to the existing laws against rape and dowry deaths and legislate against amniocentesis; yet it also succumbed to political expediency and vacillated about justice for women in the Shah Bano (1985) and the Roop Kanwar Sati (1987) incidents. Contrasting with these inconsistencies were some conscious measures by the state to address gender issues in its development policies. This tilt is evident in its development policy statements (such as the Shramshakti Report of the National Commission on Self Employed Women (1987), the Challenge of Education (1985) revised and updated as a National Policy on Education (1991) and The National Policy on Health (1983); it is also evident in the attempts made to address women's grievances by setting up the National/State Commissions for Women, the All Women Police Stations and Family Counselling Cells. These developments signaled to the women's movement the importance of participation in electoral politics and in the ongoing development processes. The 1990s have brought radical challenges: Women's issues were increasingly articulated in international conferences, such as the Vienna Congress on Human Rights (1994) and the Fourth World Conference for Women at Beijing (1995) and feminist theorizing acquired a degree of acceptance in the academia. Influenced by post-modern discourses, feminist theories began to dismantle notions of power/powerless, sexuality and the notions of fixed gender identities. It was also a period, when free market economies were deified and the political basis for a welfare state undermined. The decade witnessed the increased importance of IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the World Bank in determining national policies. At the outset, the various Structural Adjustment Programmes and the new trade regimes of GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade) weakened state authority and regulatory powers in the name of free trade. The subsequent founding of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in January 1995 to replace the GATT dismantles state monopolies in key sectors such as telecommunication, railways, natural resources, investments in all direct industries and services. The instrument to achieve this is the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI). As a result, nation states are becoming answerable to multinational corporate interests rather than to their citizens. Along with other progressive groups, feminists are drawn to protests against these trends, which erode wages for the majority of workers, expand temporary/piece work, displace farmers/tribals by agribusiness, timber and power sectors, undermine existing labour laws and environmental regulations. For apart from the economic costs of development borne by poor women, these trends are lending credence to religious, racial and ethnic fundamentalist movements round the world. The rise of global conservatism is because of the economic and cultural insecurities of the people. Fundamentalist movements are identifying the decline in traditional values as at the heart of the problem. Drawing on these traditional values (which clearly relegate women to the home), these movements detract attentions from the failures of the present economic processes. Additionally, the state/international policies are also explaining their failures by resurrecting the bogie of the "population bomb" which targets women from poor developing countries in the various population control programmes.

Paradoxically, the 1990s also saw the enactment of the 73 and 74 Constitutional Amendments aimed at the progressive devolution of political powers to local communities. Through these enactments, more than one million women for the first time in history enjoyed political power within local communities. And yet, despite the success of these st experiments, the women's movement has not been able to muster enough support to ensure that passage of the 81 or th the 84 Amendments through which women could represent their interests as a "critical mass" in the Parliament and state legislatures. Nonetheless, even if women were to get sufficient representation in electoral politics, the situation would not be easy. Given the ways in which caste, class and gender identities intersect, the question would remain as to how to make women elected representatives accountable to the women's movement. In other words, who should speaks for whom? This situation is made more complex with the political reality of fragile coalitions, the rise of regional and OBC/Dalit assertiveness in party politics. Grappling with these diverse factors, feminist politics is in a state of flux; past strategies aimed at the state have proved less effective. Confronted with an increasingly unresponsive state, which no longer maintains the fiction of social commitment, it needs to develop new political strategies and theories. We need to understand how the system works--not just the impact of liberalization, privatization and globalization policies--but also the processes of decision making which results in the sudden privatization of certain key sectors. This understanding of policy-making processes and implementation will enable us to intervene/mitigate and, if necessary, alter the negative trends in development. It is not enough to theorize on alternative people-centered development paradigms, but rather to pragmatically examine the current processes to devise workable strategies. This would require that instead of merely looking at the impact of economic reforms on women and documenting reduction in social sector, expenditure or employment, feminist politics must grapple with institutional changes that have occurred and the new reformulations within them. This would require that we re-examine our beliefs, our theories and to develop conceptual clarity on strategies what will energize people's collective power. A moot question would be whether the feminist agenda of gender justice would be best achieved by aligning with other oppressed groups, or by maintaining a distinct identity? This would also mean a critical assessment of feminist politics and theory in the past three decades, to understand the gains and shortfalls. This introspection would also require a fresh assessment of the state policies that have had negative implications for women. So far documentation on the feminist movement has revolved around its history and the key issues it took up. In this seminar, we propose to chart the underlying premises of feminist action to assess their implications in the light of the present political reality. To realize this we also need to understand some of the major instruments and institutional changes proposed as well as already installed. Some of the sub themes that we propose to examine in the symposium are as follows:

SNDT WOMEN'S UNIVERSITY

The S.N.D.T. Women's University was founded by Bharat Ratna Maharshi Dhondo Karve, the bold social reformer who dedicated his life to the advance of Indian women. In 1896 he established an ashram at Hingne, near Pune for widows and other helpless women. Despite opposition and with very meager resources he started a simple programme of schooling for the ashram inmates because he firmly believed that it was only through education that they could be made self-reliant and free. Slowly but steadily the Maharshi's ashram school grew into a well accepted institution in Pune. Young girls from educated families came to study, encouraged by the success, his aspirations stretched. He dreamt of establishing a University and launched it with five students. Empowerment of women, through education, has been the single-minded mission of this University ever since its establishment. With socio-cultural changes and technological advances , the goals and objectives of the University are being continuously reinterpreted to make them relevant to the needs of women and in the context of prevailing needs of the society. The mission of the University is "Empowerment of Women through Education". An Enlightened Woman is a Source of Infinite Strength is the motto of SNDT Women's University. The turning point came when Sir Vithaldas Thackersey, an eminent industrialist of Mumbai, also deeply committed to the cause of women's education stepped forward with donation of Rs. 15 lakhs. The University was named Shrimati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey Women's University (SNDT) in memory of his mother. In 1936 the University established a campus at Mumbai. As the University grew at its campuses at Pune and Mumbai, its philosophy and its distinctive purpose took firm shape as relevant today as they were at the outset to create an atmosphere where girls can blossom into confident, self-reliant, responsible individuals, who can be a source of strength to their families and their communities. Guided by this philosophy the University has developed many special features which make it distinctive and unique. It caters exclusively to women and offers courses which are important and relevant to them. It pioneered the concept of Distance Education seven decades ago by allowing from the outset, students to study privately at home, in the days when the idea of girls attending college was not generally acceptable. Today, it has one of the country's most reputed programmes in Distance Education. It offers instruction in four media. English, Gujarati, Hindi and Marathi. In fact from its very inception when most Indian Universities were teaching exclusively in English, SNDT started teaching in Marathi and Gujarati. In 1951 the University acquired statutory recognition. This recognition came alongwith the rare privilege of jurisdiction across the country. The University has three campuses - one in Pune, and two in Mumbai (Churchgate and Juhu). In addition to 32 University Departments and 11 constituent colleges located in the three campuses, today, the University has 210 colleges in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh,

45

Assam and Harayana. During the current year we are planning to introduce Bachelor of Fashion Design, Interior Design, B.Sc. (Clinical Laboratory Science), and diploma in Acturial Sciences. Our territory will be extended to Rajasthan and Goa also. We hope that during this current academic year 30 more colleges will be added to the privilege of our University.

How to Reach Conference Venue ?

SNDT Women's University has two campuses ­ 1, Nathibai Thackersey Road, Churchgate railway station and Juhu campus at Juhu Tara Road, Santacruz (W) In Mumbai. The Juhu campus is the venue for the XXXI Indian Socal Science Congress. It is 2 Kilometer from Santacruz (West) Railway station) and 2.5 Kilometer From Santacruz Airport. Those traveling by train are well advised to come out west side of the Santacruz railway station. Mumbai is the gateway to India from the west. Being the commercial capital of the country, Mumbai has all infrastructures for domestic and international travel.

By Air

Mumbai's Santacruz Domestic Airport is 25 km from the city and 2.5 Km from the Juhu Campus of SNDT Women's University. On arrival at the Santa Cruz airport the baggage retrieval area is skirted by counters for various services such as hotel reservations. Taxis are available from a policed queue outside the terminal. The Sahara International Airport, renamed as Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport, is 5km further from the domestic terminal. There are regular shuttle buses between the two terminals. At a height of 26 feet above mean sea level, Mumbai airport serves as one of India's major international airports. It operates round the clock, and currently handles upto 35 landings and takeoffs per hour. Hotel bookings and pre-paid taxis are available at the terminal. Domestic and international airlines connect Mumbai with all parts of the country and the world.

By Rail

Mumbai is connected to almost every city and town of the country by rail. Long distance express trains operate from Mumbai to every state capital. Central Railways handles services to the east and south, and a few trains to the north. Western Railways has services to the north from Churchgate and Central stations. Bookings are to be made in advance to avoid the last minute rush, as trains are the most used mode of transport. The extensive system of suburban electric train network is most sought after transport means in bombay for city trvel.

By Road

Mumbai is well connected to all major towns and cities of the country with a network of national and state highways. Mumbai has one of the best public bus systems of any major Indian city. Mumbai has a huge fleet of metered black-and-yellow taxis as well.
