Abstract:
Muncipalization is a process that brings certain areas within the realm of urban local governance. Extending the municipal boundary of the city through bringing in adjacent areas, contributes to core-ing. Core-ing in the particular study has been referred specifically to the expansion of the core city area in a metropolitan region. The present study would like to bring into expansion of the municipal boundary of the city of Kolkata, which forms the core city within the Kolkata Metropolitan Area. Unlike other metropolitan cities of India, Kolkata has not showed much expansion in recent decades. The decision to extend the municipal limit was primarily triggered through the launch of metro railway project and consequential increase in real-estate development in the area. Municipalization could be considered as governmentality that enables the state to create and refurbish a space in coherence to its larger policies and development trajectory. In this case it facilitates to bring the focus back to the central city of the larger metropolitan area. The paper through review of events post and pre municipalizaion, review of census data for select basic services and group discussion of local residents would like to explore into the metropolitan governmentality of the state.
