Dear Querist

Municipality areas are notified by concerned State Govt. vide publication in Gazette notifications and only thereafter, same are called notified municipalities. Those notifications also describe boundaries of such Municipalities.

Feel free to contact for further clarifications.

  • In India, a municipality or Nagar Palika is an urban local body that administers a city of population 100,000 or more. However, there are exceptions to that, as previously municipalities were constituted in urban centers with population over 20,000, so all the urban bodies which were previously classified as municipality were reclassified as municipality even if their population was under 100,000.
  • Under the Panchayati raj system, it interacts directly with the state government, though it is administratively part of the district it is located in. Generally, smaller district cities and bigger towns have a municipality.
  • Municipalities are also a form of local self-government entrusted with some duties and responsibilities, as enshrined in the Constitutional (74th Amendment) Act,1992.

Municipality for a city, town, or other district possessing corporate existence and usually its own local government.
