Administration[edit]

Until the local government reforms of 2000, Lahore was part of the now-defunct Lahore Division. With the revival of commissioner system division, Lahore was restored.[citation needed]

Under the latest revision of Pakistan's administrative structure, promulgated in 2001,[1] Lahore was tagged as a City District and divided into nine towns.[2] Each town in turn consists of a group of union councils.[3]
