Jakarta is a Province of Indonesia. not a city[edit]

See Provinces of Indonesia, Jakarta is one of 34 provinces of Indonesia. In Indonesia, province is the highest tier of the local government or level I region, while city or regency is on level II region. (Jakarta is not a city)

A city has a mayor, A province headed by a governor; Jakarta headed by a governor. (Jakarta is a province)

Jakarta has five cities and a regency. (Is a city has five mayors and a regent?)

In Fact, Jakarta in real sense is "Province of Jakarta", not "Jakarta City". It is a common misconception to call Jakarta as the largest city, when the truth is Jakarta is one of provinces in Indonesia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NouVa (talkcontribs) 17:26, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

It sounds like Jakarta mirrors New York, London, and many other major cities that have sub-divisions.
Also, if Jakarta is not a city, what is the capital city of Indonesia? —C.Fred (talk) 17:46, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
As I know, New York is a state (level I region) in United States equal with Jakarta is a province (level I region) in Indonesia, while "New York City" is a city (level II region) located in the state of New York.
Are you sure Jakarta mirrors London? In fact, London is a city (read the article) located in the county of Greater London (level I region).
As comparison=
Country _________ = Indonesia____________________________ - United States_______ - England
First tier region ___ = Jakarta (province)____________________ - New York (state)_____ - Greater London (county)
Second tier region _ = Central Jakarta (administrative city)_____ - New York City (city)_______ - London (city)
For your information, In some countries, capital area is not always a city, For example: capital of Japan is Tokyo (Tokyo is often referred to as a city, but is officially known and governed as a "metropolitan Prefecture"), most people acknowledge capital city of Belgium is Brussels (de facto), although it is actually a Regions of Belgium while City of Brussels (de jure) is the real capital of Belgium. Therefore, the capital of Indonesia is a Province (There is no capital city in Indonesia) = NouVa (talk) 13:37, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
You're mixing the definition of "city" as a urban/geographical term and "city" as a political administration. Jakarta is still a city by urban/geographical definition. Singapore is a country, but it's still a city. Berlin is a state, but it it's still a city. FYI, Jakarta's governor office is called "Balai Kota" or city hall [1], not province hall lol.

Jakarta is not a Special Capital Region[edit]

Jakarta is a province, official name is Special Capital Region of Jakarta. Other region such as Aceh, Special Region of Yogyakarta, Papua, and West Papua is also a province, not Special Region. Hddty. (talk) 03:48, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Largest Megacity by 2030[edit]

If Jakarta's population grows to 35.6m by 2030 as estimated in source 11, and Tokyo's population falls by the 2 million estimated in source 11, Jakarta still will not have over taken Tokyo. Yet the article states: "Jakarta is predicted to reach 35.6 million people by 2030 to become the world's biggest megacity." I'm a little confused as to where this comes from. ```` — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rtbittaker (talkcontribs) 16:30, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

I think someone's overlooking the greater metropolitan area of Shanghai, China. (talk) 22:30, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
