The story of Municipality

                When the British occupied south Asia they noticed that the cities were often dusty and no one took care of roads and public facilities. Once, many years ago, the cities of Asia were known for their cleanliness and good maintenance, but that tradition had died away with time.

                The British introduced the concept of municipal corporations, which formed the basis of modern cities in south Asia. In the region now constituting Pakistan, Karachi was the first city to develop a municipal commission through the encouragement of its commissioner Mr. Bartle E. Frere in the 1850’s. Later, the organization developed into a full-fledged corporation and many natives such as Jamshed Feroze Nusserwanji played an important role in providing modern facilities to their city.
