Indian army’s Fire and Fury Corps constructed three Community Centers in Merak, Chushul and Koyul villages in Changthang area near LAC with China and handed them over to the locals.

To commemorate its completion and handing over of these Community Centers, a ceremony was organised at Merak, Chushul and Koyul on 30 and 31 October.

Brigade Commander, Chushul Brigade and Commandant ladakh Scouts Regimental Center interacted with the locals and handed over the community centers. The village headmen expressed appreciation on fulfillment of their long standing demand to GOC, Fire and Fury Corps.

These villages are located in far flung areas and lack facilities such as community halls, for organizing social and cultural functions. This is a step ahead by the Indian Army to make the life of villagers comfortable and at the same time foster deeper cooperation and confidence amongst the villagers of the Border Areas.
