Based on the mayor of the city administration, the election of the vice-president of the Cantt board can take place in the coming days. Necessary changes have been initiated in this regard. If all goes well, the election of the vice-president instead of the board member is made by the residents of the canton. In fact, in 2012 the Defense Ministry set up the Basu Committee to review the extensive reforms in the neighborhood, the rights of the Vice President and members. The committee submitted its report to the Ministry of Defense long ago. In the recommendations, the committee said that the election of the vice-president of the canton should take place directly like the mayor. So far, the cantonal vice-president has been elected by the elected members by voting among themselves. In this way there were allegations of the horse trade in the election of the vice president. The committee also advocated expanding the powers of the vice-president and elected members.

Apart from that, under the Cantt Act 2020, the Ministry of Defense had solicited objections and suggestions from the population of the Cantt area. Apart from the seven board members, it mentioned keeping the eighth post of Vice President. But now the discussion is that only the vice chairman of the board can be elected by the public. It is said that the Cantonment Bill will be introduced in the monsoon session of Parliament. In this case, the vice-president is elected directly by the people instead of the board members through a vote. Amit Kumar Baburao, the Executive Director of the Cantonal Council, says nothing can be said about this yet. This decision is made by Delhi itself.
