Statistics reveal that there are 362 villages in Delhi, out of which 135 are classified as urban villages, and 227 are classified as rural villages.
In 1963, the MCD passed a notification which did not make it mandatory for building sanction plans to be passed for the urban Lal Dora lands too.
Though the term Lal Dora applies to both Rural & Urban villages, the thin dividing line has vanished over the period of time, and prime areas of Delhi today (though still classified as Lal Dora) operate commercial & high end residential areas.
Villages like Basant Gaon, Munirka, Khirki, Yusuf sarai, Katwaria sarai, Mahipalpur, Chhatarpur, Sant Nagar, Rangpuri, Kanjhawla, Najafgarh, Lado sarai, Mehrauli, Shahpur Jatt etc.
have all been absorbed into the developed limits of Delhi, and they form part of the elite areas.
It is that part of the land which was supposed to have been an extension of the village habitation, wherein the villagers used to have their support systems, livestock etc.
In the olden days, these areas were marked by the land revenue department by tying a Red Thread (Lal Dora in Hindi language) around it, to make a boundary and to distinguish it from the agricultural land.

The most organized I have found so far in reference to state-mandatory education requirements. It was one of the most value-added on-line courses I have ever taken.
