During partition of British India, millions of people were displaced from their homes. Partition changed the social and economic structure of the city. Delhi witnessed an increase in its population. After Indian independence, many Muslims fearing for the loss of their lives fled to Pakistan. Their homes were taken up by the Sikh and the Hindu refugees who came from the newly created state of Pakistan. Many people who were not able to find homes lived in the refugee camps. Nearly five lakhs people were added to the population of Delhi. Most of the migrants were from Punjab who hoped to build new homes. During this time, colonies like Tilak Nagar and Lajpat Nagar sprang up. Partition also changed economic structure of the city. While Muslims who migrated to Pakistan were artisans, small traders and labourers, new population which moved into the city were landlords, teachers, lawyers, traders and small shopkeepers.

These people forced by the circumstances took up work as hawkers, vendors, carpenters and ironsmiths. This also marked a change in the culture of the city. The Urdu based culture was overshadowed by changes in food, dress and language.
