The cantonments will be demolished and turned into “special military stations,” according to reports in The Times of India and Hindustan Times. 62 cantonments across the nation will be transformed into military hubs, and the Indian Army will have “full control” over them, according to press reports from yesterday.
The Times of India quoted an official saying that, “The process will be faster in cantonments where demarcation between civil and military areas is easy. Others will take time.”
“To be sure, not all cantonments are likely to become military stations as the army and civilian pockets are intertwined and that may not permit a segregation,” the report added.
