Dahisar is a railway station on the Western line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway network. Dahisar station is the last station in Mumbai (officially). The area around the station is heavily trafficked and congested.
With the construction of the railway line connecting Dahisar to the city of Mumbai in 1867, came the first lot of migrants, the people from Sindhudurg region of Konkan. These migrants established the first planned residential areas of Dahisar - Maratha Colony in Dahisar East and Mhatre Wadi in the West. The Railway authorities wanted to name the Railhead at Dahisar as Mount Poinsur, but the locals opposed this move and forced the authorities to name it as Dahisar.
