Commissioner's Message

Dr. Ranbir Singh, IAS

Dear Delhiites,

 East Delhi Municipal Corporation which consists of whole of Trans Yamuna area of Delhi, comprises of 64 Municipal Wards/16 Assembly Constituencies. It has an area of 105.98 sq. kms. with a population of over 40 lakh. Thus, almost 25% of Delhi population resides in 1/8 of Delhi total area. The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has 90 approved colonies, 253 unauthorised regularized colonies, 245 unauthorised colonies in process of regularization, 23 urbanised villages, 43 rural villages and 19 resettlement colonies under its jurisdiction. This brings in challenges in municipal administration to provide essential civic services, in such diversified localities, most of which have come up in an unplanned and unorganized manner.

In order to meet the expectations of residents of National Capital, the EDMC despite tight financial position is continuously striving to provide civic services to the residents of East Delhi at the levels which are demanded by them. Latest available technologies are being used to bring in transparency and accountability in the functioning of the Corporation.

EDMC seeks cooperation from the public and the Government to partner in achieving its desired goals.

With hope of cooperation from all the stakeholders, EDMC aspires to be one of the best local body in providing services to all the residents of East Delhi. 

Dr. Ranbir Singh, IAS
