Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) in Karnataka is India’s fourth largest Municipal Corporation in India. Recently, the Siddaramaiah-led Karnataka government has also issued an order giving new responsibilities to 6 IAS officers in BBMP.

Now, it is the first time in history that IAS officers are heading the BBMP zones. For the first time, the government has made IAS officers responsible for managing the BBMP’s eight zones. Until now, the zones were headed by joint commissioners, who were KAS (Karnataka Administrative Services) officers.

Deputy CM of Karnataka, Mr. D K Shivakumar, held a meeting with all eight zonal commissioners and urged them to take leadership and ensure smooth coordination between different departments within the BBMP and outside.

According to officials, the government plans to cut down the number of senior IAS officers working in the BBMP head office and focus on strengthening zonal offices that are closer to citizens.
