A nagar palika or nagar panchayat is a form of an urban political unit in India comparable to a municipality.
An urban centre with more than 30,000 and less than 100,000 inhabitants is classified as a nagar panchayat.
However, there are some exceptions. All the previous town area committees (urban centres with a total population of more than 5,000 and less than 20,000) are reclassified as nagar panchayat.
Nagar panchayats have a chairman with ward members. It consists of a minimum of ten elected ward members and three nominated members.
