Move to resume unutilised Cantonment land


Share post:


The State Government has appealed to the Centre to transfer to the Civil administration all unutilised polts and land leased for commercial purposes within Shillong Cantonment and other Defence Holdings.

In an official note on the necessity to transfer some plots of Cantonment land to Shillong for civilian use, the State Government has pointed out that the Defence authorities have been willy nilly dragging its feet on some of the long pending demands of the State Government in this regard.

The note said: “The Shillong Cantonment is in an enviable positionbecause, with the heavy pressure on the land in the city, it has a large area lying unused. Some of the plots of land have been kept vacant for a number of years and are not likely to be needed for defence purposes in future.”

The State Government has demended release of the following plots: plot of land opposite Anjalee Cinema, plot of land of Anjalee Cinema, Garrison Ground, abandoned firing range at Kench’s Trace, Cantonment land north of Umshyrpi river, right of way of civilian through the Cantonment to the villagers of Umlyngka, Nongkseh and Lummawbah.
