Pilibhit Nagar Palika Parishad has 52 wards at present under its charge and it has 52 elected representatives known as Ward members. As of 2007, the Nagar Palika Parishad covers an area of 68.76km per square.

With various tourist spots in the vicinity, Pilibhit is slowly turning out to be a major tourist attraction in Uttar Pradesh and the most important factor is that the Uttar Pradesh Government is also keen in this matter.

The court deals with criminal jurisdiction and civil jurisdiction of the district. The maintenance of law and order is partly the responsibility of this division of the district. The District Magistrate is responsible for the overall administration of Pilibhit City and does direct reporting to the office of Home Ministry of Uttar Pradesh.
