Nizamabad Municipal Corporation, the third largest civic body in the State, will go for its elections with a total number of 3,06,544 voters, which includes 1,57,468 females.

The final lists of voters relating to the NMC and Bodhan, Armoor and newly formed Bheemgal municipal councils in the district were released on Saturday.

The number of divisions allotted to different categories was released on Saturday. Of the 60 divisions in NMC, 12 are reserved for BC General, as many for BC women; 16 for OC general; 14 for OC unreserved; five for SCs; and one for STs.

The 32nd division with 5,847 voters is the largest while the third division is the smallest (4,226 voters).

There are 11,900 voters for 12 wards in the newly-constituted Bheemgal municipal council.

Of them, 6,275 are females. Among the women, BCs are 5,091 and given their population, it is likely to be reserved for BC women.

The Armoor voter list has not been released as some discrepancies cropped up.
