The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, also known as the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is the civic body that governs the city of Mumbai, Maharashtra and is India's richest municipal organization. The BMC's annual budget is more than that of some of the small states of India. Established under the Bombay Municipal Corporation Act 1888, it is responsible for the civic infrastructure and administration of the city and some suburbs of Mumbai. In 2014 Trishna Vishwasrao became the first female corporator to be leader of the Corporation's house.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation is headed by a Municipal commissioner, an IAS officer. The commissioner wields the executive power of the house. A quinquennial election is held to elect corporators to power. The corporators are responsible for overseeing that their constituencies have the basic civic infrastructure in place, and that there is no lacuna on the part of the authorities. The mayor is the head of the house, who is usually from the majority party. As of June 2008, all administrative business in the BMC is conducted in Marathi.
