Greater Kailash is an affluent, upmarket and exclusive area of South Delhi, consisting of several residential colonies and multiple markets with modern retail outlets and designer wear stores. Among the most trendy shops in India, Greater Kailash boasts of housing a large number of these. There are also several night clubs, bars, pubs and restaurants serving various varieties of food.

Geographically Greater Kailash (often referred as GK) has been divided into two zones, Greater Kailash Part I and Greater Kailash Part II. Greater Kailash is home to Bureaucrats, Businessmen and noted Politicians in Delhi.

Greater Kailash Part I is home to one of the busiest markets in New Delhi, called the M-Block market, which has a wide range of products and brands, alongside a very popular eating destination. Some of the stores and eating joints include Pizza hut, CCD, Barista, Gelato Vittrio, Esprit, Puma, Sisley, United colors of Benetton, Mascot Studio, Gorgy, Prince pan and Lords. Greater Kailash Part I is plagued by problems of bad traffic, and often, there is a very huge traffic jam in the market.

Greater Kailash Part I was developed by the DLF in early 1970s. Its development was followed by the development of Greater Kailash Part 2 which has easy accessibility to Outer Ring Road of New Delhi
