Dwarka is a sub city, located in the South West Delhi district of the National Capital Territory of Delhi. It is named after the legendary Dwaraka Kingdom. It is a short distance away from Gurgaon which is a major hub for large corporations in the country and about 10 Kms away from Indira Gandhi International Airport. With the opening up of the Airport Express Line, which has been built and being managed by Reliance Infrastructure Ltd, the travel time from the Dwarka Sector 21 Metro station to Airport is expected to be about 3 minutes and to New Delhi Railway Station 20 minutes.
Some parts of modern day Dwarka historically came under the colony of Pappan Kalan, which are now being developed under the 'Urban Expansion Projects' of the Delhi Development Authority. One of the largest residential areas in Asia, it is supposed to have a "Zero Tolerance" policy towards common misuses of land and the transgressions of any existing laws and regulations, such as encroachments, which are frequently thought to be flouted in other parts of Delhi. It is also frequently referred to as the "Model Township" and is also thought to be the most organized and cleanest of all parts of Delhi and nearby townships.
Dwarka, New Delhi also boasts of some the widest and most developed road network for any colony in Delhi and nearby townships. Dwarka is also known for its higher quality and much better maintained infrastructure like roads etc. which many believe sets it apart from nearby townships.
