On Monday, Prestone Tynsong, the deputy chief minister of Meghalaya, inaugurated the Umling facilitation centre and set up several counters like pre-registration counter, registration counter, COVID-19 testing centre, infiltration centre, etc.
A total of Rs 2.70 crore was spent for setting up the facilitation centre, said Tynsong, and added that the residents of the state wouldn’t face any problem since it will be a hassle-free system.
Additionally, in the next few months, residents can expect facilitation centres to be set-up at Rattacherra in Jaintia Hills and Bajengdoba in Garo Hills.
The infiltration check point from Byrnihat will be shifted in this facilitation centre, the deputy minister said.
A lady from Assam on an official tour told EastMojo that it was a smooth process and didn’t face any problem. She appreciated the strict COVID-19 screening being carried out. Another resident of Shillong returning from Bangalore mentioned that the infrastructure was neat, but it was not clear was where the returnee had to go.
