CSDS is located on Rajpur Road in the Civil Lines area in North Delhi, close to the University of Delhi. You have to cross the Ridge from the University to get to Rajpur Road. Any bus that takes you to ‘Exchange Stores/ I.P. College/ Mall Road’ will also take you to places which are a short distance from Rajpur Road. If you take an auto rickshaw or taxi from South Delhi or any other part of the city, the best thing to say to the driver is: ‘Near Transport Authority, Underhill Road, Civil Lines, I.P. College’; most auto and taxi drivers know the Civil Lines ‘Authority’ well. CSDS is about two minutes away from this landmark.
The quickest and easiest way to get to CSDS is to take the Delhi Metro from Connaught Place (Rajiv Chowk) to Civil Lines, or change at Kashmiri Gate and take the metro to Civil Lines. Get off at Civil Lines, cross Shamnath Marg, get on to Underhill Road, walk (10 minutes) to the end of Underhill Road, where it meets Rajpur Road. Turn left, and you will see Number 29, Rajpur Road (on your left), which is where CSDS is housed.
