The results released by the Registrar General of India indicate Delhi is the second largest populated city in the India. But, in terms of urban agglomeration or spread as an extended city -- that comprises built-up area of central and any suburbs or linked continuous urban areas -- the Delhi National Capital Region for the first time has overtaken Mumbai.
The NCR, which included Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida and Ghaziabad, has a total population of over 2.17 crore, while the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (Thane, Navi Mumbai, Vasai-Virar, Bhiwandi and Panvel) has a population of 2.07 crore.
