The project is implemented by India International Convention & Exhibition Centre Limited, a 100% government-owned company under Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion, Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

With a population of nearly one million, Dwarka is said to be the largest residential suburb in Asia. It has a cluster of cooperative group housing societies which have become dens of crime and corruption.

Although Delhi Government is fully aware of corruption in housing societies, it has not taken any steps to weed out corruption and stop the increasing incidents of crime.
