Cantonment Board

A Cantonment Board is a local government body in India that is responsible for the administration of a cantonment, which is a military or paramilitary camp or area. Cantonment Boards are responsible for providing a range of services to the residents of cantonments, including water supply, waste management, public health, and education.

Cantonment Boards are established and governed by the Cantonments Act of 2006, which sets out their powers, functions, and responsibilities. The Act also provides for the composition and election of the members of a Cantonment Board, as well as the procedures for the administration and management of a cantonment.

Cantonment Boards play an important role in the administration and development of cantonments in India, and they work closely with the military or paramilitary organizations that are based in the cantonments to ensure that the needs of the residents are met.
