NDMC - New Delhi Municipal Committee/ Council

The NDMC Delhi saw its first traces in the Imperial Delhi Committee that was established on 25th March 1913. Then came the Raisina Committee that introduced tax on buildings since 9th Sept 1925 to generate revenue for the functioning of the Committee. On 16th March 1927, the name New Delhi Municipal Committee or NDMC was officially designated to the committee. The supervisory powers on all services and civic activities in New Delhi including buildings, roads, sewers, medical and public health arrangements. Electricity and water supply were also made a part of NDMC service portfolio in 1932.


The NDMC - New Delhi Municipal Council regulates and superintends all matters pertaining to taxations, budgeting, revenue, accounts, contracts, audits, sanitation and public health, streets and public safety, etc. The overall governance of NCT of Delhi as determined by the Govt of Delhi is distributed among three local bodies:


  • MCD - Municipal Corporation of Delhi

  • NDMC - New Delhi Municipal Council

  • Cantonment Board


Nearly 94% of the total area of National Capital Territory comes under the jurisdiction of the MCD Delhi where the land is owned by DDA or MCD. Around 3% area belongs to NDMC Delhi with the ownership lying wholly with the Government of India.
