Moti Bagh is a residential locality with posh neighbourhoods located in South Delhi. The residential locality with lot of planted trees and parks was developed in the 1970s, is divided into South Moti Bagh and North Moti Bagh.Moti Bagh is official residence to senior civil servants, members and Chairman of the Railway Board, other employees serving in the Government of India and several officers of the Indian Armed Forces.New Moti Bagh locality is also close by.HistoryMoti Bagh was established by Arakpur Mochi, Situated on the fringes of Chanakyapuri, the colony has derived its name from a bagh (garden) and the area's name which was Arakpur Bagh Mochi. Maulavi Zafar Hasan's Monuments of Delhi published in 1919 describes Moti Bagh as: "The Bagh is an extensive enclosures surrounded by a masonry wall with a bastion at each of the four corners and a big gateway towards east. in the centre of the enclosure there is a tank about 120 sq. feet with a circular bastion, which has a pavilion of three compartments on its northern bank. it was originally a bagh built by one Ramdas entitled Mochi and it is after his title that the garden is known". at the turn of the century the area came to be known as Mochi Bagh rather than the Arakpur Bagh Mochi. The name remained on paper. after the 1970s, the process of land acquisition for government accommodation began. "once completed, the name Mochi Bagh sounded a tad too crass for a high-end government accommodation. so, the babudom quietly changed it to 'Moti Bagh'," says RV Smith, a prominent historian. "Till late 1960s, it was all agricultural land and a few houses. the people who were well off left the area to buy kothis elsewhere," said Ashok Tanwer, resident of Fatehpur Beri. Ironically, what remains of Arakpur Bagh Mochi is an unauthorised cluster awaiting regularisation.
