Nagpur City
Establishment of Municipality In City

The municipality of Nagpur was first established in 1864 as a branch of the Districts administration. When  the first Municipal Act was passed in 1873 the committees was reconstituted with a majority odd member elected by the townspeople, and in 1883 the constitution was still further enfranchised. In 1884 it was found necessary to form a special sub-committee for the administration of the civil  station. This arrangement has been continued, the sub-committee having now practically independent powers. The municipal income, chiefly derived then as now from an octroi tax, was in 1865 only Rs. 1,26,000 and in 1882 Rs. 1,59,000. In recent years its growth has been repeatedly checked by visitations of plague and the disorganization of trade  which these always cause, so that the present net income is not much more than four lakhs and is barely sufficient for the  more pressing municipal needs. The taxation, however, is extremely light. Its net amount is only three lakhs, or about Rs. 2-4-0 head of population. Reduced to the lowest common multiple this represents the wages of an unskilled laborers for five days.
