With the expansion of Delhi towards west with Rohini and south with Dwarka, Inderpuri now actually falls right in the heart of Delhi.

One of the best parts about this locality is that its very accessible and in the city heart but is still very pollution free and relatively cooler throughout the year because it is surrounded by 3 large green tracts namely 1) Delhi cantonment 2) Pusa institute and 3) Delhi ridge on third side.
