Posted On: 24 JUL 2023 2:35PM by PIB Delhi

In order to bring uniformity in municipal laws governing civil areas of Cantonments and adjoining State Municipal areas, it has been decided to consider to excise civil areas of certain Cantonments and merge them with neighbouring State municipalities. Accordingly, broad modalities for proposed excision of civil areas in 58 Cantonments have been shared with concerned State Governments for their comments. List of these Cantonments state-wise is as follows:

One Cantonment namely, KhasYol has already been de-notified w.e.f. 27.04.2023.

The excision of civil areas and their merger with State Municipalities involves active consultation and concurrence of the concerned State Governments. Therefore, it is not feasible to provide any time-frame for its implementation.  

Various representations have been received from public and elected representatives, and also from few State Governments requesting for excision of civil areas from Cantonments.

There is no bar on implementation of State Government schemes by concerned State Governments in Cantonment areas. All State Governments are already extending benefit of various schemes to the residents in Cantonments.

This information was given by Raksha Rajya Mantri Shri Ajay Bhatt in a written reply to Shri Jaggesh in Rajya Sabha today.
