I think that this should be either "There is a lot of people in Delhi" or "There are lots of people in Delhi"

Translation sounds fine to me as a mother tongue english speaker. 'There is a lot of people' sounds wrong to me, but maybe it's a regional thing?

Sometimes the correct English sounds wrong but I don't know if I am using the correct English. I was just throwing it out there. Anyway it accepts "There are many people in Delhi" so I am happy with that.

I feel that 'There are many people in Delhi' is equally correct.

Almost 19 million in fact

I was always surprised the Indian government didn't push changing Delhi to Dilli more like they did Bombay to Mumbai, Calcutta to Kolkata, Banaras to Varanasi, etc.

What about "Delhi has a lot of people" as a correct translation?
