An awareness programme-cum-workshop on environmentally sound management of e-waste by Meghalaya State Pollution Control Board, in collaboration with M/s Hulladek Reycling Private Limited, will be held at 10:30 am on Tuesday at Shillong Club.
After combined groups from Rongjeng in East Garo Hills opposed the proposed set-up of a bonded warehouse and a wine store near a school in the area, the DC has assured that the former would be shifted to a new location. The assurance from the DC came following a meeting held between the district administration, Excise officials and the opposing groups along with the UCPF on Thursday.


The District Sports Officer, Ri-Bhoi, has informed that the Office of the Medical and Health Officer in collaboration with the District Sports Officer, Ri-Bhoi District, will organise a ‘Run for a Tobacco-Free Meghalaya’ at 6 am on May 31, as part of the World No-Tobacco Day, 2024.
