Administration of Nashik
On the other hand there are a number of local administrative bodies that look into the day to day administrative needs of the city of Nashik. While the Nashik Municipal Corporation looks after the civil amenities (they mainly look into the expansion and maintenance and the collection of local body tax for the civil amenities) the administrative needs of the suburbs of Nashik are quiet often looked after by some panchayats.
Nashik Municipal CorporationIn the Nashik Municipal Corporation there are a total of 9 boards which have different jobs. They can be contacted through their website or over the phone. The division of the nashik municipal corporation are The commissioner, General Administration department, Encroachment department, Accounts department, Audit department, Health and medical department, Public work and Electrical department, Water supply and sewer departments and the town planning department. The main purpose all these different departments were carved out is to make the make the different sections of civil amenities more efficient and more capable to serve the people.
The Nashik Municipal Corporation has a number of divisional offices, these were set up so that people living in the suburbs of Nashik or at a slight distance from Nashik (these are areas that come under the purview of the Nashik Municipal Corporation) did not have to take the trouble of travelling all the way to Nashik to have their needs met. There are a total of 6 divisional offices namely at Satpur, CIDCO, Nashik (East), Nashik Road, Nashik (West) and Panchavati.
One interesting fact about the boundary of the Nashik administration is that there were almost no boundary changes of the taluka or district between 1901 and the year 1948. Only a few years after independence was the district again rearranged to make it more efficient and far more capable. Currently the district of Nashik covers a total area of 15,530 sq kms.
The town of Nashik, like any non metro city has a collector and there has been a long list of collectors of Nasik since the pre independence times. A total of 97 collects have held this prestigious post till date. The famous Sinhasta Kumbh Mela also comes under the purview of the Nasik district administration. This is a truly challenging feat for the administration as they have to not only manage the large amount of people coming in but also make sure they are safe and have all the basic human need.
