Nashik Administration

Nashik is one of the largest and most economically viable and clean cities in India. It is located in Central Maharashtra and is a hub for citrus fruit cultivation and export. Another sector that has had a steady growth from this area is the wine making and exporting sector. The city is home to some of the warmest and kind people one will find anywhere. The administration of the city is handled by the Government of Maharashtra, which is elected by the people every 4 years and the civil amenities, is looked after by the Nashik civil body which is also elected by the people every 4 years. The article will delve deeper into how the entire administrative setup of the Nashik administration works.

Administration of Nashik

Administration of NashikThe laws that govern the land of Nashik are established by the government body based at Mumbai, Maharashtra (the issue relating to the sate list) while some issue are governed by the central government situated at New Delhi (these include matters on the concurrent list, as stated in the constitution). The head of the administration of Nashik is the chief minister of Maharashtra which is currently Mr. Prithvi Raj Chawan while the figurative head is the governor of Maharashtra.

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 Corporation

In 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.
