The Mayor of Srinagar is the first citizen of the Indian city of Srinagar. He is the chief of the 74-member Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC). He is elected through a popular vote in a quinquennial election. The elections are held in all 74 wards in the city to elect corporators. The party that wins the maximum number of seats holds an internal vote to decide on the mayor.

On 6 November 2018, Junaid Azim Mattu became the Mayor of Srinagar, after getting 40 corporator votes, as a candidate of Jammu and Kashmir People's Conference. [1]

The mayor of Srinagar holds a status equal to a Minister of State as of 20 August 2019.[2]
