Welcome to Forests & Environment Department, Government of Meghalaya

Welcome to the Meghalayan Age. We currently live in the Meghalayan Age. The past 4,200 years of earth’s geological history have been officially classified as Meghalayan Age. A stalagmite from the Mawmluh Cave of Meghalaya has provided chemical signature as evidence for the beginning of Meghalayan age.

Meghalaya, the Abode of clouds, located in the hills of Eastern Sub-Himalayas was carved out of Assam as autonomous State on 2nd April, 1970 and was declared as full-fledged State on 21st January, 1972. It is bounded on the Northern and Eastern sides by the State of Assam.  On South and Western side, it shares a 423 Kms long international boundary with Bangladesh.
