Why Mall Roads

Why Mall Roads

I admit I did not know the full form of the MALL Road till today .
I wonder how many of you are aware of it .

Why Mall Roads …

What does Mall stand for, since we have MALL Roads in all the Cantonments …..

MALL ROAD was a division between married accommodation and living lines….

so on one side there used to be Units’ living lines along with Unit Admin areas and
on the other side it used to be married accommodation for British Officers and troops…

dotted with Bungalows and Messes on the Eastern side..

and lines on the Western side……

Also Indian troops were never allowed to cross the Mall Road.

MALL ROAD stands for:-

​Married Accommodation and Living Line Road.
