Kolhapur Municipal Corporation is the apex representative body of the City. Being connected with day to day life of citizens, the Corporation constantly strives for providing all types of facilities and services to them. Along with essential services like Sanitation, Water Supply, Roads and Fire Fighting, the Corporation provides facilities like libraries, playgrounds and public parks. Realizing the felt need of citizens to access information and services on the internet, we have developed this new website.

We all know that the world is progressing fast. Today anybody can be contacted any where in the world through the internet. The City of Kolhapur belonging to Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj has achieved overall progress in many fields like Art, Sports, Education, Science, Industry, Commerce, Research, Social work and Politics. The website attempts to provide a glimpse of the same. An attempt has been made to record all major historical and geographical information and noteworthy events in the website. The website provides a rapid overview of the progress of the Corporation since its inception to the present state. The website contains information about various departments of the Corporation.

The Corporation is constantly working for health and well being of its citizens and in lieu of that citizens pay various taxes. Information about these taxes including tax rates, necessary application forms and their details is given on the website in a simple and easily understandable language for the common man. Also importantly, the Development Plan of city has been made available on the website, which can be very useful for land use planning to the citizens. The website provides facility for online payment of taxes. The citizen charter, Annual Budget, Information about the city and other important information have been captured in it.

The website has been designed both in Marathi and English for ease of use. I will do my level best to improve the service delivery standards to the citizens of Kolhapur.I will try to bring more transparency and accountability in the system through e-governance. As the Municipal Commissioner, I would like to assure the citizens of Kolhapur that we would constantly endeavor to achieve the goal of improving services provided by the Corporation to its citizens and to ensure that the website is helpful as a step towards achievement of that goal.

With my best wishes...!
