Nagpur: 3 Days delay after, NMC (Nagpur Municipal Corporation) on Friday submitted the delimitation of wards with the SEC (State Election Commission). And this time the first ward is also likely to start from Kempty Road in North Nagpur. But the last one will terminate at Wardha Road in Chinchbhuvan instead of the usual Shivgaon-Jaitala in south-west Nagpur.

In the 2017 municipal elections, the process started only in August 2016 and has been completed till the date of November 25, 2016.
The State Election Commission will also examine the draft. Subsequently, the State Election Commission will also announce the schedule for publication of the draft, The period for receiving objections and suggestions, shall also appoint an officer for each Municipal Corporation for hearing and finalize the delimitation of these wards.
Meanwhile, senior corporator Sunil Agrawal and many others also feel that if the State Election Commission would have greatly accelerated the process of finalizing the delimitation of wards and reservations. Then the State Election Commission can conduct elections on time.
Exact extent of the new wards
There will be up to 52 wards and all of them will be new because the government of this state has changed the 4-member ward system to 3. And the draft submitted by the civic body also includes the areas and boundaries of each of the wards.
Corporators, Political parties, and interested candidates will also come to know about the exact extent of the new wards only after the publication of the draft by the Nagpur Municipal Corporation.
There is also a round of speculation about the boundaries and areas in the new wards in the political corridors. Many are also circulating the pictures marked on the map.
