The municipal corporation that oversees Meerut City is called the Meerut Nagar Nigam (MNN), also known as the Meerut Municipal Corporation (MMC). It was constituted by the Uttar Pradesh Municipal Corporation Act of 1959 and is in charge of the city's administration and civic infrastructure. The Nagar Nigam is the urban local government established by the relevant state laws as specified by the 74th Constitutional Amendment Act of 1992.
By collecting property taxes and a fixed payment from the Finance Commission and the Government of Uttar Pradesh, MMC works to provide essential community services like healthcare, education, housing, and transportation. The town's residents pay taxes on water, housing, markets, entertainment, and vehicles and receive state government funding.
