Cabinet Nod to Merger of Delhi’s 3 Civic Bodies, Unification Bill May Come Up in Parliament This Week

Delhi’s three municipal corporations — north, south and east — are likely to merged soon as Cabinet on Tuesday approved its unification bill. The bill is likely to be brought up in Parliament this week.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi was trifurcated in 2012 by the then Congress government led by Sheila Dikshit, in an attempt to make inroads into the civic bodies, which had become a BJP bastion, as well as to dilute the powers of a single powerful mayor in the city. The Delhi Municipal Act, 1957 was amended by the Parliament in 2012 to trifurcate the unified MCD.
