Dwarka Mor is located in southwest Delhi. The area is connected to the remaining parts of the city as a major ring road
passes through the neighbourhood which is a sub arterial road of the city. The proximity to the metro and airport make
this area accessible. Rapid urbanisation in this area has increased population much faster which encourages the de-
velopment of the unauthorised dense residential settlement. Good connectivity and affordable land prices encourage
people to reside here.
