The city is the seat of the Government of Tripura. The Agartala Municipal Corporation, established on 1 April 1949, is responsible for the civic infrastructure and administration of the city. It was upgraded to corporation from municipality in 2007 with 23 wards and 72 election booths (polling stations). Agartala lies on National Highway 8 (NH-8) between Kolkata and Guwahati; it has a branch line railway link to Lumding in Assam state that connects it with other parts of India by rail as well as an airport that operates flights to Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai among others. Agartala's climate falls under "Bengal monsoon" classification . Like most cities located near subtropical regions such as Bangladesh or southern China its weather exhibits high variation over short distances resulting in hot summers followed by equally chilly winters but dry during both seasons unlike nearby humid cities like Guwahati or Shillong which experience wet summers followed by very rainy monsoon season due to their proximity towards Bay Of Bengal .
