Vrindavan, 2017.07.26 (VT): A recent proposal to upgrade Barsana from a Town Council (Nagar Panchayat) to a Municipality (Nagar Palika) is making an impact. The State Government has ordered the District Magistrate to expedite the process.
Of the three Nagar Palikas in Mathura District, only one – Kosi Kalan – remains after Mathura and Vrindavan were merged to form the Mathura-Vrindavan Nagar Nigam For this reason Barsana will likely become a Nagar Palika soon.
The proposal to upgrade Barsana to a Nagar Palika was made by Dairy Development Minister Lakshminarayan Chaudhry in February of this year. He followed up with another letter this month, and this time the State Government and the City Development Department responded immediately.
To meet the population requirements of a Nagar Palika, the city limits of Barsana will likely be expanded to include a number of nearby villages.
