The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai,[3] also known as Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), is the governing civic body of Mumbai, the capital city of Maharashtra. It is India's richest municipal corporation.[4][5] The BMC's annual budget exceeds that of some of the smaller states of India. Established under the Bombay Municipal Corporation Act 1888,[6] it is responsible for the civic infrastructure and administration of the city and some suburbs of Mumbai. In 2014, Trushna Vishwasrao became the first female corporator to be leader of the Corporation's house.[7]

Administration[edit] The BMC is headed by a Municipal Commissioner, who is an IAS officer. The commissioner wields the executive power of the house. A quinquennial election is held to elect corporators to power. The corporators are responsible for overseeing that their constituencies have the basic civic infrastructure in place and that there is no failure of duty on the part of the authorities. The Mayor is the head of the house, who is usually from the majority party. As of June 2008, all administrative business in the BMC is conducted in Marathi.[8]

BMC is one of the richest municipal corporations in Asia.[9] Corporation elections[edit]
