The Mayor of Mumbai (Formerly Mayor of Bombay) is the first citizen of the Indian city of Mumbai (formerly Bombay). This person is the chief of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, but the role is largely ceremonial as the real powers are vested in the Municipal Commissioner.[citation needed] The Mayor also plays a functional role in deliberating over the discussions in the Corporation.[1] Snehal Ambekar of the Shiv Sena is the current Mayor of Mumbai.
