By M4G Bureau - November 24, 2022
Elections to be conducted on Dec 4
As Delhi gears up for the 250-ward Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections on December 4, the Bhartiya Janata Party is running a campaign on the scope of providing the people with an amnesty on property tax dues for the last 12 years including the penalty for non-payment.
The results of the MCD elections to be held in 70 constituencies across 11 districts will be declared on December 7.
There were three civic bodies in Delhi -- East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC), North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) and South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC). The Central government in May 2022 unified the three corporations into one known as the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD). As per the official data, the total number of MCD wards in Delhi was reduced from 272 to 250 after a notification from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
