The winners will have only one year term as the elections for the 272 wards of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi will be held in early next year (2022). The bypolls may reflect the mood of the voters ahead of the 2022 elections.
From Ward No 08-E (Kalyanpuri), AAP fielded Dhirendra while BJP gave the ticket to Siyaram Kanojia and Congress to Dharampal Maurya. In Trilokpuri ward, Vijay Kumar contested from AAP, Om Prakash Gugarwal from the BJP and Bal Kishan from Congress. IN Chauhan Bangar, the AAP has fielded former MLA Haji Ishraq Khan, Chaudhary Zubair Ahmad contested from Congress and Nazir Ansari fought the polls on the BJP ticket.
All these three wards fell vacant after sitting AAP councillors elected to the Delhi assembly.

While the BJP fielded Surbhi Jaju from the seat, the AAP gave the ticket to Sunita Mishra and Congress to Mamta.
The Rohini-C ward witnessed a contest among former Bawana MLA Ramchandra (AAP), Rajesh Goyal (BJP) and Mewati Barwala (Congress).
