About VMC

Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) established in July 1950 under the Bombay Provincial Corporation Act, 1949, is responsible for the civic infrastructure and administration of the city of Vadodara. Vadodara Municipal Corporation has been formed with functions to improve the infrastructure of town.

As early as the year 183d, it was realized that municipal efforts were necessary within the city walls. It was decreed that the four main roads would be regularly watered through a newly established municipal agency. The expenses were to be covered by imposing a fee on shopkeepers. While this fee was initially collected for a brief period, the task of watering the roads persisted. The Baroda state government then took on the responsibility of funding the road watering expenses. Moreover, there was a recognition of the need to maintain and construct new roads. To finance these endeavors, it was decided to impose charges on specific imported and exported goods.
