Cities are more extensive than towns and are more densely populated. They generally cover a more widespread area than towns because towns are smaller. As cities advance, they may from time to time merge with, or incorporate surrounding areas.
The center power mainly rests in the cities and not in the towns; therefore, corporate bodies rule the cities. Cities tend to have proper sanitation, drinking water, and better infrastructure, which includes well-paved roads. Municipalities do not have as many people; therefore, they are not as well planned or built for traffic.
