    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] Nagar palikas are also a form of local self-government, entrusted with some duties and responsibilities, as enshrined and guided upon by the Constitutional (74th Amendment) Act,1992. Nagar Palika or Municipality or Nagar Nigam is an urban local body that administers a city of population 100,000 or more. However, there are exceptions to that, as previously nagar palikas were constituted in urban centers with population over 20,000 so all the urban bodies which were previously classified as Nagar palika were reclassified as Nagar palika even if their population was under 100,000. The members of the Nagar palika are elected representatives for a term of five years.
