History[edit]

In 1942, The Godrej family brought plots in Vikhroli. Sir Phirojsha Godrej brought entire village in order to set up industrial township.[1][unreliable source?]

The station was built to serve the Godrej Industries Complex which houses several Godrej factories and IT companies like Accenture, Atos, Capgemini, WNS etc.[2][failed verification]

The old Godrej railway siding were crucial links that helped in setting up democracy in India by helping to conduct first general election.[1][unreliable source?][clarification needed]
