Residential Area: The neighborhood is primarily a residential area, consisting of Sheikh Sarai-1 group housing and urbanized village of Savitri Nagar. Sheikh sarai is planned group housing having 550 dwelling units, properly planned and laid out by the DDA and architect Raj RewalOn the other hand, savitri nagar has grown into an unplanned high density residential area, having 3-4 storey buildingswhich in turn have flats on each floor built by private builders after the land rates increased during the 1990s. Green area: Sheikh sarari is interspersed with parks and has a properly developed DDA park on the periphery which also doubles up as a recreational space for the residents. Savitri Nagar has no such area.Its residents use the above mentioned park School: Apeejay school(nursery-12th std.) is big enough to accommodate children from the neighboring areas of sheikh sarai, savitri nagar and malviya nagar Dispensary: A small govt dispensary is there in the neighborhood as well as Madan mohan malviya district hospital(govt) is located just 1.5-2kms from the neighbouhood.

Market Area: The triveni commercial complex is located within the neighborhood though residents also got the nearest:malviya nagar market(1.5-2kms) for shopping. Other Commercial areas: Presence of garages and other retail shops, especially at one of the entry points of the neighborhood becomes a source of traffic nuisance.

Vehicular and Pedestrian Movement

The main roads running connecting various places in the neighborhood; sees heavy vehicular and pedestrian movement. Internal roads leading to the parking spaces

Roads: Sheikh Sarai-1 Well planned and defined road network. Encroachment on the roads by parked vehicles as parking needs of the residents has increased in the last 20 years. Also, this area sees more amount of vehicular traffic as sheikh sarai-1 has no boundary wall and entry-exit gates to the site, so vehicles going towards Malviya Nagar, Saket or towards Nehru Place go through the neighborhood to avoid traffic on the main roads.-gates should be installed at the main entry and exit points to restrict the vehicles criss0crossing the area. Clash of vehicular and pedestrian movement on the main roads due to absence of side walks. Open rain water drains along the road- should have been covered to avoid garbage been thrown into them which in turn clogs the drains. Internally, there are defined streets for pedestrian only movement

Savitri nagar Haphazard and unplanned road network inside the village Clash of vehicular and pedestrian movement on the main roads due to absence of side walks. The houses open right on the roads itself making it difficult for vehicles and a nightmare for pedestrians to move through the area. No rain water drainage system along the roads, which often gets flooded during the monsoons No defined streets for pedestrian movement, just narrow alleyways between the various houses. Other Infrastructure facilities: Sheikh Sarai-1 Has proper network of sanitary,water supply and electrical(overhead) lines ;sufficient for the residents and functioning well. Savitri Nagar Has been provided by sanitary,water supply and electrical lines,but again in an unplanned manner.The DJB water supply often erratic and quality of water is poor and so,is the electrical supply. The residents have to resort to invertors or generators for electricity.
