 About Us

The present Municipal Administration and Water Supply Department came in to being in Secretariat in year 1916 in the name 'Local and Municipal Department' .  It comprised of Local, Municipal, Plague, Medical and Legislative Branches.

Our Objectives

Apart from planning the growth of the urban centres, Government have to seriously consider arresting the degradation of urban environment due to the increasing pressure of the population so that the urban areas do not degenerate into urban slums.

Provision of a clean urban environment and maintaining public health in the urban areas calls for an integrated approach in the provision of core civic services.
