What is a municipality?  Information about the functions, powers and responsibilities of the municipality.

As part of the decentralization of power, the 7th and 8th amendments to the constitution have established local self-governing bodies such as villages, talukas, district panchayats as well as municipalities and corporations.

  There is a constitutional provision to divide the power and give power to autonomous bodies at the local level so that the people do not have to go to the upper office for small work.

  Municipalities and panchayats are there to provide maximum services to the people but as citizens we are being treated unfairly because we do not know the laws.

'EDUSAFAR' Whatsapp group works to spread legal awareness in which we will try to know about the municipality today.
