Mayor of Mumbai

The Mayor of Mumbai is the first citizen of the Indian city of Mumbai. He is the chief of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, but his role is largely ceremonial as the real powers are vested in the Municipal Commissioner. He is elected through a popular vote in a quinquennial election. The elections are held in all wards in the city to elect corporators. The party that wins the maximum number of seats holds an internal vote to decide on the mayor.

On February 18, 2005, Datta Dalvi was elected Mayor of Mumbai.
