New Delhi, Dec 8 (PTI) At least 67 per cent of the 250 newly elected councillors in the MCD are crorepatis, according to an Association for Democratic Reforms report.

In 2017, when 270 wards of the then three municipal corporations had gone to the polls, 51 per cent of the 266 councillors analysed were crorepatis, it said.

Following delimitation of wards earlier this year, the number of seats in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) came down to 250.
