Being one of the oldest and earliest constituencies in the country, it has been represented from the very beginning, by most prominent political leaders such as Radha Raman of the Indian National Congress, Vijay Goel, Union Minister of the UPA regime, Kapil Sibal presently. Hence, the Chandni Chowk seat plays a nationally important role, so far as the political discourse in India is concerned.

Not only is the constituency very densely populated, but it also covers expansive regions spanning from Lahori Darwaza to Chowk Kotwali, covering Chandni Chowk and ending in Fatehpuri Masjid. Finding popular references in the times of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century, this parliamentary constituency which lies in the historically important Shahjahanabad area, has at present 10 assembly segments which make up the Chandni Chowk parliamentary seat.
