New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC)
The history of its establishment goes back to 1911, when the then Imperial Government decided to shift capital of India from the then Calcutta (now called as Kolkata) to Delhi.
Earlier it was called Raisina Municipal Committee, but later in 1932 it was changed into New Delhi Muncipal Committee (NDMC). The major initiative of this committee has been making Delhi free from Nallas by introducing underground sewer system in whole of its area
The NDMC was under the control of an administrator till an Act was passed in May 1994, after it was superseded in February 1980. On May 1994 the Punjab Municipal Act 1911 was replaced and the committee was named as New Delhi Municipal Council.
