Safdarjung Enclave, developed by the Delhi Lease and Finance later DLF Limited after acquiring the farm lands from Humayunpur Village in the early 1960s under then Prime Minister Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru is located just south of the Ring Road and north of the Hauz Khas Deer Park. South of Hauz Khas village is Safdarjung Development Area (SDA), built in the 1960s as an extension towards south. Both colonies are primarily residential.

Safdarjung Enclave built after Partition did not include land grants for refugees from what is now Pakistan.

The airstrip next to Safdarjung's Tomb that occupies the area between it and Safdarjung Enclave, formerly Delhi's main airport, is now known as Safdarjung Airport and is the home of the Delhi Flying Club. Many official flights for the Central and State government also leave and arrive here rather than at Delhi's main airports Palam & Indira Gandhi International.
