Municipal Commissioner is the de facto executive head of government of a municipal corporation, the form of government which is granted to a city of over one million in population. While a mayor is elected to serve as the titular head of state of a municipal corporation, a municipal commissioner is appointed by the state government from the Indian Administrative Service and mostly from Provincial Civil Service to head the administrative staff of the Municipal Corporation, implement the decisions of the Corporation and prepare its annual budget. In cities other than New Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Bangalore junior officials from the IAS as well as the State Civil Service are appointed.
