The city of Delhi is multi-linguistic and multi-colored with people from all parts of India. Delhi is bordered by Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. Hence the lifestyle and language of Delhi is greatly influenced by these states. Citizens of Delhi are referred as ‘Delhites’. They are highly advanced and greatly receptive to novel customs but very considerate about their traditional culture. People from various culture, color, creed and caste can survive here with complete accord and peace. This says a lot about ‘Unity in Diversity’ among Delhites. Tremendous growth in infrastructure, new platforms for employment and business have attracted people from different parts of India to move towards Delhi for a better lifestyle. Currently, Delhi is over populated by people from neighboring states like Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal and Bihar.

The population in Delhi has increased several manifolds in last few years. According to statistical data, population in Delhi has increased 40% in the last decade and present population is approximately 14 million. In spite of this fact, 60% of the population in Delhi is born in other states.  This population explosion in Delhi had paved a way for nearby states like Uttar Pradesh and Haryana to take an opportunity of this condition and draw inroads to improve their region. This is clearly visible from the improvements observed in Faridabad, Noida and Gurgaon. These regions have reduced the tension of Delhi by inhabiting the logarithmic international demand of outsourcing and business in city. The high end facility within NCR resulted in easy transport between NCR and Delhi.
