    Originally, Gandhi conceived khadi as the best instrument for giving concrete expression to the Swadeshi’ spirit and for making effective the boycott of foreign goods in general and foreign cloths in particular. Khadi was also expected to provide an opportunity to India for cultivating self-discipline and self-sacrifice as a part of non-cooperation movement. For coordinated development of Khadi throughout the country, Gandhiji set up, the All India Khadi Board (AIKB) with branches in all provinces in December, 1923. This organization was an integral part of the Indian National Congress and worked under its control. Initially the first phase of khadi movement in India started in 1918 and ended in 1924. This paper is based on a study which encompasses the following objectives to ascertain the present scenario of KVI in North East States, to chart out the growth and development of KVI in Arunachal Pradesh, to find out the problems faced by the KV for its growth and development in Arunachal Pradesh and to search the solutions of these problems
