India to Allocate Dwarka Land for 2nd Diplomatic Enclave in Delhi

Indian Cabinet has approved the transfer of 34.87 Hactares of land in Sector 24, Dwarka, New Delhi from Delhi Development Authority to Land and Development Office (L&DO) for the purpose of allocating it to the proposed Second Diplomatic Enclave in the national capital.

Currently, there is only one Diplomatic Enclave in Chanakyapuri, where land has been allotted to the Embassies soon after Independence and several embassies and foreign missions have been set up in nearby Shanti Niketan or Vasant vihar areas.

The Ministry of External Affairs has long been demanding for more land for allotment to Diplomatic Missions/ International Organizations for building their Chanceries/ Embassies in Delhi. For this DDA has earmarked 34.87 Ha land in Sector 24, Dwarka, which will be transferred to L&DO, said a statement.

This will provide land for Second Diplomatic Enclave in Dwarka near the International Airport in New Delhi, which will be easy to access for foreign missions in the capital.
