Edit below overview about Badapokharan

OverView of Badapokharan

       The name Badapokharan is joint/ combined name derived from the two small villages- Bahad and Pokhran  situated between Chinchani  town (Southern side) and Dahanu town (Northern side) during British period. There were cluster of other smaller villages viz. Abram, Dhumket, Gungwada, Tadiyale and Dhakati Dahanu (the fishermens' village on the southern side of Dahanu creek) around  Bahad and Pokhran villages  and all these 7 villages together had one group gram panchayat which was named as 'Badapokharan'. The occupation of villagers from Bahad and Pokhran was farming and the occupants were stable and hence the Office of the Gram panchayat Badapokhran was situated at Bahad village as the said village is situated on the main road connecting Dahanu (Taluka place) and another town Chinchani. As against the above, the occupation of  most of the  villagers living in the Abram, Dhumket, Gungwada, Tadiyale and Dhakati Dahanu was fishing and most of the villages used to migrate to Dhakati Dahanu after the monsoon as Dhakti Dahanu is the famous fishing centre and harbour from unknown period.
       Over a period the seven small villages have grown up and now all the 7 villages have separate Gram panchayats (since 2002).  However the name 'Badapokharan' is now referred to the village Bahad and the Grampanchayat for the village Bahad  is still referred to as the
Grampanchayat Badapokharan .
       The original  7 villages of Badapokhran had mixed population as given below:
        Village Name                          castes of the occupants
         1) Bahad                                Bhandaris, Brahmins and Kumbhar
         2) Pokhran                            Kunabis  Brahmins and Harijans
         3) Abram                               Mitnas
         4) Dhumket                           Mitnas
         5) Gungwada                        Mangelas and Baris
         6) Tadiyale                            Baris
         7) Dhakati Dahanu              Mangelas and Baris
   It is not known as from which place the above communities had migrated to the above villages, but it appears that the Bhandaris, Mitnas and Baris have migrated from Gujarat and the Mangelas and the Kunabis may have migrated from the interior of  the state.
