This means that the number of wards could be reduced to 250 from 272. The bill was passed by the Lok Sabha on March 30. The unified body could be dubbed the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and all the liabilities, employees, revenue sources of the SDMC, EDMC and NDMC will soon be transferred to the MCD.

Now that the MCD bill has received the President’s nod, the delimitation process is expected to begin shortly. Once the official notification is issued regarding the completion of the delimitation process, the 2022 MCD election will be scheduled.

The elections, which were supposed to be held in April, had been deferred due to the bill and had triggered a political row between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
