Munirka's history dates back to the 15th century. The name Munirka is derived from Munir Khan, who was a mansabdar of the area. Its neighbourhood consists of the JNU campus on the south, Vasant Vihar on the North-West, RK Puram on northern side and IIT campus and Ber sarai on south-eastern front. The outer ring road forms the north to east boundary of the suburb. Munirka is one of the most rural areas in New Delhi. Inside Munirka streets are very narrow, typically 2.2-2.5m wide. The nearest metro station is Hauz Khas, though a new metro station is currently under construction near the flyover.
Munirka is divided primarily into four areas:
- DDA Flats Munirka
- Munirka Vihar
- Munirka Enclave
- Munirka Village
