The existing Prabhag System during coming Municipal corporation elections will be retained. The prabhag will have three representatives. The prabhag system will be implemented in all Municipal Corporations and Councils, where elections are due. Mumbai Municipal Corporation, however has been isolated from this decision.
The decision was taken by State Government in it Caninet meeting on Wednesday.
The decision has been taken even when the State Election Commission had earlier announced scrapping of prabhag system. It had also directed the Municipal Commissioners to plan the ward-wise demarcation.
The decision of the State Government has surprised the political circles.
