Abstract: A Cantonment �â� �¢can be defined as a City for Military establishment with all the urban and civic amenities necessary for comfortable living of troops, their families and necessary training area. 1. The pattern of planning in the cantonments is uniform and as old as the cantonments themselv'es. The location of cantonme-nts is decided by the Goverment taking into consideration politi-cal and strategic aspects for the defence of the country. The cantonment, in addition, provides for supporting civilian populat-ion in civil areas including Sadar Bazar, other recreational facili-ties and public utilities, which is under the administrative control of cantonment boards. It could be seen from the hierarchy of old Military cantonments th.t the British set up these stations segregated from the civil developments/Towns, with physical barriers like Railway lines, Rivers, canals, hills etc. which. could well define the boundaries of the cantonment . The areas occupied by the cantonment were much more, i:e. two to three times, the actual requirement. In case of cantonments located in hilly terrain, the area occupied was more than the cantonments located in plains, dt to certain other factors like borrowed planning standards, more percentage of unbuildable/broken land, more land required for road communication system etc.
