Evaluation of Wah Cantt

Wah was declared as Cantonment in the year 1949. It included mainly POF Estate Areas and some private areas. In the year 1951 the Cantonment limits were extended thereby including villages such as Losar Sharfoo, Budho, Sukho Mehsian and Gudwal. The limits were later on further extended upto Margalla Hills in 1964 which  included  some areas now forming part of  Taxila Cantonment  and Taxila Municipal committee. These areas were subsequently  excluded from the limits of Wah Cantt in 1976.
