The Meghalaya government has asked the three autonomous District Councils of the state to ensure that checking for labour and trading licenses is strictly done by the officials of the District Councils.

Meanwhile, the three District Councils were also given an update on the proposed amendments pertaining to the sixth schedule of the constitution and the Councils were informed that the matter is now pending with the Parliamentary Standing Committee.
