The importance of local governing institution has been a key in accelerating development and promoting democracy in Myanmar. Such administration of local government institutions may require decentralization in the lower levels such as in the second and third tiers. Myanmar has local administration institutions rather than local government institutions because in some institutions representatives are appointed while others are partially elected by the local people. This paper aims to study the existing administration institutions in Myanmar and their functions, thereby learning about municipal administration, especially of the Yangon City Development Committee. But it does not cover the whole context of the public administration mechanism driven by the General Administration Department at all levels and public service operation carried out some by municipal administration at all regions and states as well. The study will finally recommendation for strengthening the existing institutions.
