Municipal Corporation of Gwalior was established in the year of 1887 by regency council. This council administers the entire Gwalior Estate. The main purpose of forming such a municipal corporation was to provide the best services and basic amenities to citizens of Gwalior. The exact establishment date of GMC was 6th June, 1887. Soon after its creation, a certain Municipal Act was created. This Act was converted into Municipal Law in the year of 1911. After evolution of GMC, management, cleaning, and maintenance of Gwalior city was undertaken by the municipal body. During the early part of 20th century, three separate municipalities were established for different parts of Gwalior. However, all these municipalities work under one common roof presently.

The most significant achievement of Gwalior Municipal Corporation is Ranbesara Project. There are all total 9 Ranbesara being opened at different areas in Gwalior.

The newly opened 7 more Ranbesaras are located in the following areas: Bus stand campus, Vikland Market, Aamkho bus stand, community hall in Anand Nagar, community hall in Goal Phadiya, ward 26 - khatik mahaala, and zone office-Tansen nagar. However, these are temporary Ranbesaras.

In each of these Ranbesaras, Gwalior Municipal Corporation has provided with sufficient amount of beds, blanket, bed sheets, and drinking water facility. There is also electric connection with light and fan facility. The basic comforts and amenities are provided by the GMC for those who want to stay in these Ranbesaras for the time being.
