The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, also known as Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), (formerly the Bombay Municipal Corporation till 1996) is the governing civic body of Mumbai, the capital city of Maharashtra. It is India's richest municipal corporation. The BMC's annual budget exceeds that of some of India's smaller states. It was established under the Bombay Municipal Corporation Act 1888. BMC is responsible for the civic infrastructure and administration of the city and some suburbs. In 2014, Trushna Vishwasrao became the first female corporator to serve as its leader.
BMC is headed by an IAS officer who serves as Municipal Commissioner, wielding executive power. A quinquennial election is held to elect corporators, who are responsible for basic civic infrastructure and enforcing duty. The Mayor, usually from the majority party, serves as head of the house. As of June 2008, all administrative business in the BMC is conducted in Marathi.
