Urban living in metropolitan cities of India is getting difficult day by day. It is difficult because the growth of population in cities is at a faster pace than the development of the cities. To avoid this situation underground or subsurface facilities have been created in developed countries. Japan has used underground facilities to a great extent in view of less land space available. The paper discusses some aspects of developing underground facilities in Delhi, the capital city of India, and the possibility of a road traffic by-pass tunnel. It is necessary that a master plan is prepared for underground space development in Delhi for its sustainable growth. Creation of an underground space city shall be the dream of all rock engineers and scientists of India for good of the mankind.
