The Vasant Kunj residential colony came into existence after the acquisition of neighbourhood farm lands. It was a project that was exclusively undertaken by the Indian Government. The then Prime Minister Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru gave consent for the construction of this project in the late 1960’s. Neighbouring villages like Masoodpur, Munirka, Kishangarh and Mahipalpur soon became a part of the project. Though the consent was given in the 60's, it took two decades for the construction work to actually start. Delhi Development Authority (DDA) started with the colony project in the late 1980’s. The colony was segregated into 5 different segments namely A, B, C, D and E, where every individual segment was further divided into various sections namely 1, 2, 3,4,5,6 and 7 for administration purposes.

While the division that falls under the sector A was named in alphabetical order as A, B and C, the rest of the divisions in Vasant Kunj were named after numeric values.
