SFD Lite Report - Aya Nagar, India

Aya Nagar is situated on the Southwestern edge of Delhi. It is the last village of Delhi on the Mehrauli Gurgaon Road which connects South Delhi with the rapidly urbanizing city of Gurgaon in the adjoining state of Haryana. The settlement is bound by government campuses, the Aravali Hills and ravines formed by an ancient river course, now dry. It is one of the few villages in Delhi which has managed to retain the original village Johar (rain water harvesting pond) but now left neglected and used as a garbage dump.
