History[edit]

Formerly known as Majlis Daerah Batu Pahat Barat (MDBPB) (Batu Pahat Barat District Council). This agency was granted municipal status in 2001. At that time the total population within its jurisdiction was 350,000 and in 2007 is estimated to be well over 450,000 making it as the 12th largest city in Malaysia in terms of population in year 2008. In 2006, Bandar Penggaram,Batu Pahat surpassed Muar town to become the second largest city in Johor state.

As of 2008, the government does not have any plans to upgrade Bandar Penggaram,Batu Pahat to a city status (Majlis Bandaraya) yet, although the development of Batu Pahat has surpassed Alor Star and Kuala Terengganu, which have both already achieved city status.
