prc r
Brig. I. S. SAMYAL

The Station Commander of the Army is the Ex-officio President of the Cantonment Board. At present Brig. I. S. SAMYAL, is the President of the Cantonment Board Ranikhet.


The Ranikhet Cantonment has come into existence in the year 1869.With the passage of time, the Cantonment has experienced considerable progress and development and as on today, it is a Class II Cantonment. The Cantonment Board Ranikhet has been catering to the civic amenities for the civil population residing within the Cantonment, which include Sanitation, water supply, Roads & Paths, drains, parks, street lighting, schools, Dispensary & libraries etc. In the recent past, the Cantt. Board has created several public utility projects, such as Ranijheel, Aashiyana public parks, Veena park, Major Sati Parks, community Hall, Himshila, the Cantt Board Guest House, etc.

Apart from the above, large scale beautification works, improvement of parks and gardens have been carried out. The Cantonment Board Ranikhet has been maintaining High Standard of services and also keeping the assets in a good condition with utmost tenacity. With the promulgation of RTI Act, 2005 and the thrust for e-governance, the Cantonment Board has initiated action for launching of Cantonment Board Web site, for a better interface between the Cantonment Board and the public. Therefore, it is indeed an honour for me to announce the launching of Cantonment Board Ranikhet web site and I hope this step will augur a new phase of governance in the history of Ranikhet Cantt. by bringing the public and the Cantonment Board much closer by way of increased efficiency, transparency and responsiveness.
