Administrative set-up of India

A nagar panchayat (Hindi: नगर पंचायत) is a form of an urban body in India comparable to a municipality.

An urban centre with more than 30,000 and less than 100,000 inhabitants is classified as a nagar panchayat.[1]

However, there are some exceptions. All the previous town area committees (urban centres with a total population of more than 5,000 and less than 20,000) are reclassified as nagar panchayat.

Nagar panchayat have a chairman with ward members. It consists of a minimum of ten elected ward members and three nominated members.
