^ This information is outdated. The new local government act was passed in 2015, and removed towns as a unit of administration. Lahore now has 274 Union Councils (each union council has 6 wards), divided into 9 zones, each of which has a deputy mayor. Zones have no administrative authority per se. The zones fit into 5 revenue jurisdictions - 5 tehsils (City, Saddar, Raiwind, Model Town, and Cantonment), each of which is headed by an Asst Commissioner. Additionally, there are two cantonment boards (Lahore and Walton), which have 8 elected members each, representing single member wards.

Every 5 years they come up with some other new nonsense. Do you have a link where I can read all this? I'm also updating Lahore City District wikipedia page, so this could help.

I can't find any information online which clearly names every UC, ward etc.

Probably best to wait until the end of the year until a new government comes in and they redo everything again.

Didn't know things had changed! Towns were the urban equivalent of Tehsil/Taluka.

Anyway, not sure if this list is complete, I got this from The Urban Unit Lahore a while back:

Lahore Administrative Boundaries

Yes, I used this map earlier when updating Lahore City District wiki page. I don't get why they changed it. Makes no sense.

I've done some digging around, and I've gotten the idea. Local Governments come under the jurisdiction of every province...so each province has its own set up, but they generally work the same.

So far I've studied KP and Punjab's set up. They are a little different in naming, but it's essentially the same.

The first level of local government below the province is DISTRICT. Divisions are still used only for demographic purposes, but they have no governing power. All districts of Punjab fall under one of these categories:

- a Metropolitan area (governed by a Metropolitan Corporation)
- a Municipality (governed by a Municipal Corporation/Council)
- a District (governed by a District Council)

Metropolitan areas > Lahore district, governed by the Lahore Metropolitan Corporation.

Municipalities > Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Gujranwala, Sahiwal, Multan, Sialkot, Bahawalpur districts governed by Municipal Corporations

Districts > Attock, Jhelum, Chakwal, Bhakkar, Khushab, Jhang, Chiniot, Toba Tek Singh, Hafizabad, Mandi Bahauiddin, Gujrat, Narowal, Kasur, Sheikhupura, Nankana Sahib, Pakpattan, Vehari, Lodhran, Khanewal, Dera Ghazi Khan, Rajanpur, Layyah, Muzzafargarh, Bahawalnagar, Rahim Yar Khan

The second level of local government are tehsils. In metropolitan areas (Lahore district) tehsils exist, but have no power. Most power has been transferred over to the union councils. Tehsils still exist in the municipalities and basic districts under TMC (Tehsil Municipal Committee).

The third level of local government are union councils. In metropolitan areas, apparently union councils are further divided into wards, but I haven't read anything to confirm this. It might just be for demographic purposes, and doesn't really hold any governing power.


I'll be starting two new wiki pages for "Local government in Punjab" and "Local government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa".

In KP's case...all the districts function as normal districts, except Peshawar which is regarded as a "City District". The same divisions apply thereafter...Tehsils > Union Councils. But under KP Local Government Act, 2013 they have split the power of the Union Council depending upon it's urbanity.

A predominantly urban Union Council is governed by a Neighbourhood (Mohalla) Council.
A predominantly rural Union Council is governed by a Village (Keley) Council.

Bless me...I've found it. https://lgcd.punjab.gov.pk/system/files/MCLZones.pdf

Lahore District is now referred to as a "Metropolitan area". It's the only district in Punjab which is referred to that and is governed by a Metropolitan Corporation rather than a District Council.

Lahore is now divided into 9 zones (formally towns). Each zone has a "deputy mayor" with the mayor presiding over all of them.

Each zone is further subdivided into Union Councils.
Each union council comprises of 6 wards.

I've already starting making the changes.

Beyond Lahore District, every district is governed by a DISTRICT COUNCIL. The exception lies in those districts which have a cluster of urban union councils...these are amalgamated together to form a "Municipality" and depending upon the size (population), these are governed by Municipal Corporations or Municipal Committees.

For example in Faisalabad (City) and Faisalabad (District) are two separate entities now. Faisalabad's urban Union Councils now form the Faisalabad Municipal Corporation which are directly govern the Municipal Corporation, not the District Council.

The rest of Faisalabad District's union councils are rural and are governed directly from the District Council.

Tehsils have all but been eliminated. They still exist for demographic purposes but hold now power.
