Who We Are

We are an institution of Local Governance called “Urban Local Body” (ULB) . There are various categories of ULBs in Uttar Pradesh and we are classified as a “Nagar Palika ” type of ULB.

The elections for the governing body is conducted by the State Election Commission. Any person with more than 18 years is eligible to vote in the elections (certain restrictions do apply.

The governing body works within the constitutional framework and the acts made by the Uttar Pradesh Government.

The Executive Wing is headed by the Municipal Commissioner . The Municipal Commissioner is most often a state government officer belonging to the PCS (Provincial Civil Services) cadre and is treated as being on deputation from the state government to us (the ULB). He brings the administrative experience require to execute the day to day works and functioning of the ULB. He ia ably assisted by a team of officials belonging to the ULB with a longer tenure at the ULB.
