Until the mid-1970s, the city of Pune mainly consisted of Central and Inner Pune City. Since then, Pune has seen rapid and continued growth in terms of population and area, and many erstwhile villages surrounding the city, such as Baner and Warje, have become suburbs.

The city of Pune can be divided into the following zones:

Inner Pune: consisting of Deccan Gymkhana, Erandwane and Shivajinagar in the west, Camp, Dhole-Patil Road, and Koregaon Park in the east, and Swargate, Parvati, Mukundnagar, Maharshinagar, Gultekdi, and Salisbury Park in the South. On the north, the inner city is bounded by the Mula-Mutha river.
  3. Outer Pune: including the newer developed areas of Khadki, Aundh and Ganeshkhind in the northwest, Kothrud and Paud Road in the west, Dattawadi, Sinhgad Road,Panmala, Vitthalwadi, Sahakarnagar and Dhankawadi in the southwest, Bibvewadi, Lullanagar, and Upper Kondhwa in the southeast, Ghorpadi, Fatimanagar, Wanowrie and Hadapsar South in the east, and Vishrantwadi in the north.
