(1) A separate Metropolitan Planning Committee as required under Article 243 ZE of the Constitution was also set up under the AP Metropolitan Planning Committee Act of 2007. The composition of this Metropolitan Planning Committee as specified in the Act is a repetition of the stipulations contained in Article 243 ZE itself. The present position therefore is that the MPC Act 2007 is only an enabling Act. Additionally District Planning Committees have also been set up as required under Article 243ZD of the Constitution for the District of Ranga Reddy, Medak, Mehboobnagar and Nalgonda.
