Ghatkopar is a suburb of Mumbai. It is also the name of a railway station on the Mumbai suburban railway on the Central Railway line.
By 1916, Ghatkopar had developed sufficiently that a municipal council for Ghatkopar-Kirol was set up. The administration was in charge of a Collector with the "Suburban District". In 1945 Ghatkopar was absorbed into Greater Bombay.
This middle class suburb consists of predominantly residential and retail establishments. Within Ghatkopar are multiple areas, such as Ghatkopar (West), the area of Ghatkopar west of the railway line, Ghatkopar (East) - the area of Ghatkopar east of the railway line, Garodia Nagar - a large development developed by (and on land owned by) the Garodia family, Pant Nagar, Rajawadi.

The major college in Ghatkopar is the Somaiya family of colleges (Arts, Science, Management, Engineering and Medicine). In addition, the suburb is served by atleast three Muncipal schools.
Ghatkopar is in the N ward of Mumbai (previously referred to as Bombay) muncipality. There is a large Gujarati speaking population in Ghatkopar and the suburb is often referred to as mini-Gujarat.
