Dilsukhnagar is a commercial and residential neighborhood in Hyderabad, Telangana. One of the largest areas of the city, it is governed by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.[1]


Dilsukhnagar is named after Dilsukh Ram Pershad, a landlord who was the owner of the land of the neighborhood.[2] The name itself is an amalgamation of three Hindustani words – dil, meaning the heart; sukh, meaning calm or peace; and nagar, a common suffix for a place or a town.


What is today Dilsukhnagar was once agricultural land owned by local landlord Dilsukh Ram Pershad. The land was converted into a non-agricultural layout and subdivided into residential plots for sale.[3]

Once exclusively a residential suburb, strong economic growth has transformed Dilsukhnagar into a major commercial hub. Kothapet Fruit Market, one of the largest of its kind in the world, was moved to Dilsukhnagar from Jambagh in 1980.[4]


Dilsukhnagar was merged into the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation in 2007 after an order passed by the Government of Telangana. It is now a part of the Telangana State Assembly.[citation needed]



The suburb houses a Telangana State Road Transport Corporation bus depot.[5]

Multi-Modal Transport System station in Malakpet serves Dilsukhnagar.[6] It is well connected by Hyderabad Metro


The locality has been subject to terrorist attacks twice in its history. Both cases involved attacks using a time bomb. The first incident happened in 2002, allegedly planted by SIMI, an investigation of which is underway.[7] The second incident involving twin blasts occurred in 2013, killing 13 people while injuring 83 others.[8] Death toll enhanced to 17 in the ensuing days.[9] Members of Indian Mujahideen, a terrorist group, were eventually convicted for their role in the blasts.[10]
