The Local Government and Community Development Department (LGCD) has been assigned the responsibility to implement Punjab Local Government Act (PLGA) 2019 to achieve the stated objectives of the Government. Moreover, the LGCD Department has an over-seeing role to ensure that the local governments perform their functions within the provincial framework and adhere to the federal and provincial laws. The Local Government and Community Development Department (LGCD) was created to respond to the specific needs of the mega cities and largely urban districts of Punjab for good governance.
