The tradition of community Durga pujas in the Capital gathered momentum when the capital of the British Raj shifted from Kolkata to Delhi in 1911 and employees of various government offices moved en masse to the city with their families.

A little before that, Bengalis who had settled around Kashmere Gate gave birth to the eponymous Durga Puja that turns 100 this year.
