DLF Mall of India is an under-construction shopping mall in Sector 18, Noida, New Delhi NCR, India, and a mall by same name in Gurgaon, also a Delhi suburb. These malls are being developed by DLF Limited. The Noida mall covers a gross leasable area of 1,800,000-square-foot (167,200 m2), ahead of LuLu International Shopping Mall (160,000 square metres (1,700,000 sq ft)).[1] It would be the biggest mall in India when completed and when the gurgaon mall will be completed it would be surpassing all Dubai malls, making it biggest in Asia. The mall was expected to be operational by December 2014. It was supposed to open in 2009 to give Dubai its answer to Dubai Mall.

Planned and designed by Benoy, DLF Mall of India will have six customized shopping levels including international and Indian fashion, dedicated kids zone, entertainment, international cafes, food court and restaurants with a race track atrium.

To add to the Mall of India franchise, DLF plans to build Mall of India, Gurgaon, New Delhi NCR, whose capacity 4.5-million sq ft space is more than their mall in Noida. However, in November 2008, construction work at the mall, after initial digging, was put on hold due to overall fall in retail rentals.[2]
