We preserve the ancient glory of Delhi while developing it into a planned city. DDA is ensuring that the Capital's unique historic character, its traditions and ethos does not get lost in the maze of modern development.

Its search and endeavour has been to help maintain hither to unknown. Delhi the land of 7 cities has about 1321 listed monuments and an umpteen number of buildings which speak volumes about its traditions and culture.

The work on the other two sites is already in progress and by the end of the year 15 more sites will be set up.

We propose to usher in the new millennium with flyovers all over the city which will decongest the city and provide it an effective circulation system.
