Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority

KMDA was established in 1970 under a presidential ordinance and later sanctified under the KMDA Act of 1972. Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority is a statutory authority functioning under the administrative control of the Urban Development Department of the Government of West Bengal. 

The board consists of 11 member committee that includes both elected peoples’ representatives and nominated bureaucrats. The Hon’ble minister-in-charge of Urban Development in the Govt. of West Bengal is the ex-officio Chairman of the Board of KMDA.

To look after the proper administration and day to day management activities, a senior IAS Officer is appointed by the department as a Chief Executive Officer. The administrative functions are primarily organized under Secretary, who is also an IAS officer, through a number of functional units. 

The technical functions of planning and project formulation and execution are performed by eleven directorates or sectors in KMDA – each usually headed by an officer in the rank of Director/Chief Engineer. 

All the heads of directorates report to CEO directly or via some officer of the rank in between such as Director General or Secretary or Special Secretary.
