Ber Sarai is a small neighborhood located between Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and IIT Delhi in the South West district of Delhi, India. The farmlands of Ber Sarai village were acquired by the government at meager costs, without adequate compensation or muavaza (मुआवज़ा) to the villagers. The area is inhabited by Pawar (पवार) Jats.

Accessibility

The nearest road is an undivided and wide link between the Outer Ring Road and other areas of outer Delhi, such as Vasant Kunj. As this road forms a conduit, it sees heavy vehicular traffic in both directions. Ber Sarai is approximately 25 minutes by car from the Indira Gandhi International Airport.

Overview

The neighborhood comprises two distinct sections: Ber Sarai Village and Ber Sarai Delhi Development Authority (DDA) Flats. The village, which is comparatively much larger in area, is the home of wealthy Jats that own the land and also operate a few private buses on the roads of Delhi. The village shares a wall with the hostels of IIT Delhi and is, at present, a dense collection of houses mixed with shops. The Ber Sarai has a market, which is famous for both new and secondhand books.

Electorate

The Ber Sarai neighborhood is included within the "Outer Delhi" electoral constituency of Delhi. This constituency has been the battleground of two candidates over the years: Ramesh Kumar of the Congress (I), who replaced his brother Sajjan Kumar (a senior leader of congress party and ex Member of Parliament) and Sher Singh Dagar of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Dr. Yoganand Shastri of the Indian National Congress is the current MLA of this area.
