Manmad is one of the cities in Nasik district in the state of Maharashtra state in India. It is the third largest city in Nasik district, with a population of approximately 2,00,000. It geographically lies within Nandgaon Tehsil in Nashik District. Though it is bigger in area as well as in population compared to most of the Tehsils in the district, it does not have a Tehsil office.

Manmad houses the largest grain storage warehouses of Asia which are administered by Food Corporation of India, and also the offices of petroleum companies like Bharat Petroleum, Hindustan Petroleum and Indian Oil. This is predominantly Railway town. All development in the city took place around railway activity. The city also has a popular Sikh Gurudwara.
