About Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC)

The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) is the governing body responsible for the administration and management of the city of Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta), which is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. KMC is one of the oldest municipal corporations in India and plays a crucial role in providing various civic services and urban governance functions to the residents of Kolkata.

Established in 1876, the KMC is responsible for a wide range of functions including urban planning, waste management, water supply, sewage and sanitation, road maintenance, public health, and more. It operates under the jurisdiction of the West Bengal Municipal Act and is headed by a Mayor who is elected by the members of the municipal corporation.

Kolkata is a major metropolitan city with a rich cultural heritage and a high population density. The KMC’s responsibilities encompass the challenges and demands of managing a bustling urban environment. Over the years, the corporation has faced various urban development issues such as infrastructure development, waste management, traffic congestion, environmental concerns, and more.

The KMC is responsible for collecting property taxes, issuing trade licenses, maintaining public amenities like parks and markets, and overseeing development projects within its jurisdiction. It collaborates with state and central government agencies to address the various needs of the city’s residents and to implement policies and initiatives for urban improvement.

It’s worth noting that developments and changes might have occurred since my last knowledge update in September 2021. Therefore, for the most current and accurate information about the Kolkata Municipal Corporation, I recommend checking official government sources or recent news articles.
