DLF Mall of India is a shopping mall situated in Sector 18, Noida, 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 sq ft (167,200 m2), and when the Gurgaon mall will be completed it would be surpassing all largest malls, making it the biggest in Asia. Earlier the mall was expected to be operational by December 2014 to give Dubai its answer to Dubai Mall. Eventually, the mall opened for public in February 2016.

Planned and designed by Benoy, DLF Mall of India has 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 planned to build a Mall of India in city of Gurgaon, which would have a capacity space in excess of 4,500,000 sq ft (418,100 m2) than their mall in Noida. However, in November 2008, construction work at the mall, after initial land lease and digging, was put on hold due to overall fall in retail rentals.[1] Thus it's current status is held in a stalled state.
