The Act assimilated certain laws in force in the scheduled areas to the laws in force in the Khasi and Jaintia Hills district.

After the appointed day, the laws in force in the Khasi and Jaintia Hills district were to come into force in the areas mentioned in the Schedule. The purpose of this Act has now been fulfilled. Hence, the Central Government should repeal this Act. This Act has also been recommended for repeal by the PC Jain Commission Report (Appendix A-1).
