In 1924 the Cantonments Act was enacted to introduce local self-government in the Cantonments which contained substantial civil population. The act was the first model municipal Act for the Cantonments, but in its implementation, decentralization and democratic norms were largely compromised because of the status of the citizen who occupied the property only as licensees of the Government. Recently in year 2006, the Cantonments Act 1924 was replaced by the Cantonments Act 2006 with a view to introduce greater decentralization and improve the financial base of Cantonment Board to make provisions for developmental activities and management of defence land and audit. Under the Cantonments Act 2006, Cantonments are divided into four categories based on the population criteria. Agra Cantonment falls under Category I (population above 50,000). Cantonment Boards are statutory bodies — a body corporate having perpetual succession and a common seal with power to acquire and hold property. Their other functions are, more or less, the same as those of municipal bodies.
