City class[edit]

I rvt'ed the new edits which showed a city class for two reasons. First, as the Status of Indian cities list indicates, a city's status of A-1, A or B-1 indicates central government rental allowances to its employees in these cities (among other things). Since this template seems to deal with cities' population, I think the use of the term "city class" in this template and context is not only irrelevent but also gives casual readers a very wrong impression on the status of Indian cities. The second reason I rv'ed the edits was because some cities (notably Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad) are classified as A-1 for purposes of CCA (Compesatory City Allowance) and as A for purposes of HRA (House Rent Allowance), so just randomly grouping them as "A" cities makes little sense.

Thanks for the thoughtful editing. - P.K.Niyogi 23:20, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Police your template[edit]

Why did this contain Dhanbad, pop. 198,000? and more important: what else is wrong with it? Septentrionalis PMAnderson 06:51, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

I had developed the Template:Million plus cities in India based on data of Census Commission of India on the web. The back up was List of million-plus cities in India. Now Census Commission has removed that data. Many editors are editing the template/ related page without any reference data, and I am rather helpless in preventing it. Therefore, I felt that without proper reference the template is somewaht redundant. As such I removed some of the templates. If some one wants to maintain it, he is most welcome. - P.K.Niyogi (talk) 06:14, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
I have found a list of cities and villages with relevant details that were archived from the 2001 Census reports. Please browse through the contents and verify if the source is reliable. - CSumit talk 16:52, 12 February 2008 (UTC) [1]

Is the name correct?[edit]

Is the name of this template correct? I think it really means million plus UA of India. Data on City population would give different results.GDibyendu (talk) 19:36, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes. This is the list of million plus UAs. I suggest a name change of this article, and creation of another with million plus cities. Cheers, -- Rajith Mohan (Talk to me..) 03:59, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Change in the list[edit]

The list of cities in the template is corrected inorder to reflect the List of most populous cities in India.
The following cities are removed from the list:

The following cities are added to the list:

Now, the template is the correct listing of Million plus cities in India. Cheers, -- Rajith Mohan (Talk to me..) 11:53, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

UPDATE please and a little gk[edit]

This should really be the population of urban agglomeration and not cities.kolkata has an city pop. of 45 lakh but UA is 1.5 cr approx. we know and identify cities by urban agg. pop. and not city pop. big cities are always divided into smaller sections for proper administration.it does not mean that u would pluck individual parts through it. Hence kindly change this template in due course the name would also be changed.-- devx101 [TALK] 20:42, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

The source is simple List of million-plus agglomerations in India derived from population.de website-- devx101 [TALK] 20:45, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
