Municipalities in Nepal are cities and towns meeting minimum criteria set out by the government. These criteria include a certain population, infrastructure and revenues. Presently, there are 263 municipalities in Nepal, of which only 58 existed until 2014. 72 were established in May 2014, 61 in December 2014, 26 in September 2015 and another 46 in March 2017.[1][2]

There are three types of municipalities in Nepal, metropolitan city, sub-metropolitan city and municipality. In March 2017, after the report by the Local Level Restructuring Commission, the country was divided into 4 metropolitan cities, 13 sub-metropolitan cities, 246 municipalities and 481 rural municipalities.[3] Two sub-metropolitan cities, Biratnagar and Birgunj, were upgraded to metropolitan cities on June 1, 2017, taking the number to 6 metropolitan cities and 11 sub-metropolitan cities.Now there are 6 metropolis,11 sub-metropolis,276 municipal councils and 460 village councils declared as on Sep,2017 by Government of Nepal in a booklet named "A Brief Introduction to Village Councils & Municipal Councils in Nepal 2017".[4][5]

In terms of area, Pokhara is the largest metropolitan city, with an area of 464.28 km2, and Lalitpur is the smallest, with an area of 36.12 km2. Ghorahi is the largest sub-metropolitan city, with an area of 522.21 km2 and a population of 156,154.[6] and Sitganga is the largest municipality with an area of 610.43 square kilometres (235.69 sq mi)[7]
