Administrative divisions of Bangalore

Greater Bangalore, the metropolitan area consisting of the metropolis of Bangalore and its neighbouring regions, is divided into 198 wards for administrative purposes. The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP, Greater Bangalore Municipal Corporation) is in charge of the civic administration of the city. It was formed in 2007 by merging 100 wards of the erstwhile Bangalore Mahanagara Palike, with seven neighbouring City Municipal Councils, one Town Municipal Council and 110 villages around Bangalore. The number of wards increased to 198 in 2009.[1][2] The BBMP is run by a city council composed of 250 members, including 198 corporators representing each of the wards of the city and 52 other elected representatives, consisting of members of Parliament and the state legislature. Elections to the council are held once every five years, with results being decided by popular vote. Members contesting elections to the council usually represent one or more of the state's political parties. A mayor and deputy mayor are also elected from among the elected members of the council.[3]

The two major offices in the city administration are those of the Mayor of Bangalore and the BBMP Commissioner. The office of the Mayor combines a functional role of chairing the Corporation meeting, as well as a ceremonial role associated with being the First Citizen of the city. Per the amended Municipal Corporation Act of 1888, a Deputy Mayor is appointed by the Mayor. The tenure of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor is two and a half years. The Municipal Commissioner, a key figure in the local self-government, is the executive head of the municipal corporation. He is the final administrative authority for the local self-government of Bangalore.

Zones

The BBMP is divided into 8 zones, for the ease of administration.[4] Every zone has a Joint Commissioner, who is answerable to the BBMP commissioner. The zones are:

  1. Yelahanka
  2. Dasarahalli
  3. Bommanahalli
  4. South
  5. Mahadevapura
  6. East zone
  7. Rajarajeshwarinagar
  8. West zone
