EPDP colony was constructed for displaced people in the 1960s, renamed as Chittaranjan Park after the 1990s, consists of more than 14 blocks.According to the 'Chittaranjan Park Site Specific Design Study' published by the Delhi Urban Art Commission, the land in the Southern area of New Delhi was assigned to a large group of government officers in the 1960s, who came from East Pakistan (former East Bengal) after the partition in 1947. It is now known as Chittaranjan Park. In the 1960s, the land was named as ‘East Pakistan Displaced Persons Colony’ or EPDP Colony. The original layout had 2000 plots, divided into eleven blocks A-K. In the 1990s, 714 displaced families accommodated in the Chittranjan Park, which resulted in the construction of new blocks called M, N, O, K-1, K-2 (Refer Page No.7).

A thesis available on Shodhganga website reveals that EPDPA Group Housing Society began construction of permanent houses in the area known as EPDP Colony in 1969, and as Chittaranjan Park since the 1970s (Refer Page No.7).

The Deccan Herald article states that initially during the 1960s there were 11 blocks in the Chittaranjan Park named A to K (11 Blocks ) and that blocks M, N, O, K-1, K-2, Pocket 40 (referred to as Navapalli), Pocket 52 (referred to as Dakhinpalli) and Pocket-K were added later.
