It has been a constant endeavour on the side of the Cantonment Board to make the Cantonment a better place to live in. The Board has taken up several ventures that have made a commendable difference to the quality of life of the residents. Due to efforts made by the Board, the Cantonment now boasts of clean, tree lined roads, decent water supply position, good street lighting and hygienic environment.

But one issue that was not addressed was the dissemination of information regarding the working of the cantonment administration. Though an effort was made a couple of years ago by drafting a citizen’s charter, it was felt by many that more information should be forthcoming and in a way which enables people to access the information easily. A website was the solution to this.

And thus this website came into being. It incorporates in itself all the information that is required by the citizens to interact with the Board. The development of this site is an ongoing process and the residents are requested to make full use of the site and offer their valued suggestions for further improvements to the site. We firmly believe that there is always room for improvement.
