The primary delimitation order has been issued considering the 2011 census, according to which the total population of Gandhinagar is 2.02 lakhs. Accordingly, out of the total 32 seats, five seats have been reserved for Scheduled Caste candidates and two seats for Scheduled Tribe candidates.

The GMC elections will have 50 per cent reservation for women and so, there will be four members in each ward. It is to be noted that the multi-member ward system has been challenged before Supreme Court and the matter stands pending there.

Issuing the primary delimitation notification, the SEC has also invited objections from concerned people within 10 days.

The final notification will be issued after considering the objections and deliberations with political parties.
