In 1997, the first four ward offices were set up in the PCMC. In 2012, then civic chief Dr Shikar Pardeshi created two more ward offices for decentralisation of work. In February 2017, during the last municipal elections, the four-member panel system was implemented. Accordingly, 32 election panels were formed and eight zonal offices were created for smooth functioning of administrative work.

These eight zonal offices came into existence from August 9, 2017. These offices were named  ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’, ‘E’, ‘F’, ‘G’ and ‘H’ for administrative convenience.
