The Metropolitan Region Planning Authority (MRPA) was responsible for the formulation and implementation of a Metropolitan Region Scheme, to administer and carry out this Scheme, to advise the Minister on matters related to it, and review and make recommendations for possible changes.
The Authority was abolished in 1985 and its operational functions passed to the Metropolitan Planing Council. Policy functions previously carried out by the Authority were passed to the State Planning Commission.
