Bengaluru: The Karnataka government on Wednesday issued a notification increasing the number of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike wards from 198 to 243 with immediate effect.

The notification comes 20 days after the state assembly passed a bill for increasing the number of wards in the range of 225-250.

Due to the process for increasing the number of wards, the municipal elections were put on hold after the council’s five-year term was over.

In the absence of the elected body, the government has appointed senior IAS officer Gaurav Gupta as the administrator of the BBMP.
