Municipal Corporation Chandigarh

The civic administration of Chandigarh is under the control of Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh (MCC). MCC was established in 1994 for handling many key areas of civic amenities for the citizens of Chandigarh. The various functions of MCC include water supply, sewage, storm drainage, roads & parking, development of parks & open spaces, street lights, fire fighting and above all the sanitation services. One of the most important features of Municipal Corporation’s working can be said to be its accessibility to citizens directly as well as through the Councilor – both elected as well as nominated.

The corporation is headed by a Mayor who is assisted by a Deputy Mayor and other elected members of the MCC. The mayor is responsible for the overall functioning of the MCC and has tenure of five-years. The real executive power of the UT is vested on the Municipal Commissioner, an IAS officer.
