Locality Beautification and Enhancement Competition

Your neighbourhoods. Your ideas. Your creative decisions. Your art. Your vote. YOUR TOWN.

The Initiative

The Locality Beautification and Enhancement Competition was launched on 24th September 2021 by the Tourism Department of Meghalaya and the District Administration, East Khasi Hills. The Competition was created as a way to bring our neighbourhoods to express themselves and to bring about a transformation through community efforts and engagement. It aims to rejuvenate and beautify the urban localities of Meghalaya by releasing catalytical grants to community-level institutions to undertake beautification works that will enhance the tourism experience.

The Process

Interested localities in the Shillong region submitted proposals on how they want to give their neighbourhoods a facelift based on their on-the-ground requirements, creative inputs and resources. These proposals were screened and proposed activities were sanctioned based on a set of parameters. The total sanctioned amount to the 33 localities that submitted proposals is approximately Rs 2.19 Crores. Funds were allocated to the different localities based on the nature of the approved proposals, population, and size of the locality.
