Patel Nagar is a sub district of West Delhi and known as a commercial cum residential complex. It is divided into different colonies by the names of Baljeet Nagar, East Patel Nagar, New Patel Nagar, New Ranjeet Nagar, Prem Nagar, Ranjeet Nagar, South Patel Nagar and West Patel Nagar. It lies close to neighbouring areas like New Rajendra Nagar, Old Rajendra Nagar, Prasad Nagar, Pusa Road, Rajendra Place and Shadipur.
Patel Nagar is mainly inhabited by Punjabi and Hindu families, however, also homes residents of varied cultural backgrounds and religion, all living harmoniously. Through the years, this area has seen rapid development and today homes numerous Markets, Shopping Complexes, Coaching Institutions, Commercial Complexes and Multiplexes with modern infrastructure and decor.
Recent urbanisation and development has made Patel Nagar very crowded and this effect is also seen in some residential areas that are very clustered and so close to each other that you can even see right into the adjacent house; hence, to avoid this, many houses are seen covered with thick curtains and Blinds. Most houses are built in apartment style and owned by individual families with very congested parking areas due to lack of space, however, some parts of this region also homes spacious houses and apartments which is a complete contrast compared to the overall size of this region.
East Patel Nagar mainly homes world class eating outlets, Cafés and Restaurants that include Baithak, Bikanervala, Gyan`s, Hydrabadi Biryani House, Madras Café, Naivedyam, Patel Nagar Restaurant, Rice Bowl and the famous Subway.
