About Nagar Nigam Ayodhya

Ayodhya Nagar Nigam was established on 7 January, 1978 by separating it from Nagar Nigam Faizabad. It was then known as Nagar Nigam Parishad Ayodhya and started providing its services to the citizens of Ayodhya.

Later, in May 2017, through an order issued by the Government of Uttar Pradesh, the Ayodhya Nagar Nigam was again merged with Nagar Nigam Faizabad, after which the complete working of Nagar Nigam Ayodhya and Faizabad came under Nagar Nigam Ayodhya.

At present, Ayodhya Nagar Nigam (Municipal Corporation) is the governing body of the city of Ayodhya and former Faizabad. The name of the district was changed to Ayodhya in November 2018. The municipal corporation consists of democratically-elected members, headed by a Mayor and administers the city's infrastructure and public services.

The urban local bodies in Uttar Pradesh are governed by two important legislations, viz. UP Municipal Corporations Adhiniyam, 1959 and UP Municipalities Act 1916. These two acts specify the governance framework, spatial jurisdiction and the functional domain of the urban local bodies.

Who Govern Us

Being an institution of Local Government we have a distinct difference between the two wings-

  • Legislature and
  • Executive

Our Legislature is a governing Body. This Governing Body which is elected by the citizens living within the geographical area of ours. The geographical area has been carved out into – electoral wards. Each ward elects a representative to be sent to the Governing Body. The other members of the Governing Body are:

The election for the governing body is conducted by the State Election Commission. Any person with more than 18 years is eligible to vote in the elections (certain restrictions do apply. For details please contact the State Election Commission which has its office at Faizabad , Uttar Pradesh).

The governing body works within the constitutional framework and the acts made by the Uttar Pradesh Government.
