An own goal from Souvik Chakraborty (3rd minute) opened the scoring for the hosts before Reinaldo Da Cruz Oliveira added a second at the stroke of half-time.
The visitors, who had better ball possession and scoring opportunities, failed to find the net with rival goalkeeper making a couple of good saves.
After being gifted with an early lead, the Zico coached side continued to make the right moves even though the ground was a bit slippery post some drizzle before the match.
The home team had another chance to increase the lead in the 12th minute, but Leonardo Moura low shot hit the post.
Delhi, who lost both their matches to the home team last season, seemed unperturbed by the early setback and regrouped to create chances. But they could not meet with much success with rival 'keeper Elinton Andrade making a couple of good saves.
