Presently the demography of Shahpur Jat is made up mostly of Jats. Brahmins, Baniya and Valmiki are also residents of the village. In 1965, the land was acquired by Central Government to construct Asiad Village. Increasingly people from other places in India are moving into the urban village and also foreigners are attracted by the low rents, parking space, lifestyle, monuments and green belt.
Shahpur Jat is a very old village featuring traditional havelis and the remains of the historical capital city Siri Fort, such as the stretches of the thick city walls, all surrounded by 20th century apartment and office buildings. The area is currently[when?] undergoing urban greening and rejuvenation, partially due to the activities of local NGOs.
Due to the exceptionally low rents in the area, and its proximity to the premier institutes like Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IITD) and National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Shahpur Jat has attracted many startups and boutiques like KleverKid, Avanti, Holidify, Eckovation, Consure Medical, and Elucidata.
