Shillong, Dec 21: Meghalaya is set to have more entry-exit points in the State by next year.

Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong informed that the government has finalized the land acquisition process for the setting up of the entry-exit points at Ratacherra in East Jaintia Hills district and Bajengdoba in North Garo Hills district.

“The next entry point or the facilitation centre that we are going to set up very soon one will be at Bajengdoba and another Ratacherra,” Tynsong said.

The land at Ratacherra belongs to the Jaintia Hills Autonomous District Council (JHADC) while the land in Bajengdoba belongs to the Sericulture department of the government.

“The lands have been handed over to the tourism department for starting the process of land development and construction of the prefab structures at these two locations,” he said.

“Hopefully by next year we will be able to set up similar entry point or facilitation centers in these two places,” he added.

According to him, the government has decided to prioritize important locations and ensure entry-exit points are immediately set up at the earliest.

The deputy chief minister further informed that the entry-exit point in Mendipathar railway station is under construction and would soon be completed.

“The next one is Mendipathar Railway station, I think in another two-three months we are going to inaugurated another one there, “ he said.

He said in the meantime, the government has also made functional the facilitation centre at the Umroi airport.

On the other hand, Tynsong also informed that the infiltration check-gate at Byrnihat will also be shifted to Umling very soon.

It may be mentioned here that the Umling entry point is one among the 18 entry-exit points proposed to be set up in the different districts of the state under the first phase of implementing the MRSSA.

Meanwhile, the pressure groups including KSU, RBYF, FKJGP and HNYF have lauded the state government’s effort to set up the entry-exit points and urged the need to aggressively pursue with the Centre for immediate implementation of the ILP in the state
