Transforming the North-East: Tackling Backlogs in Basic Minimum Services and Infrastructural Needs


  • Planning Commission


The Prime Minister's economic package and offer of unconditional talks announced on the occasion of his visit to the Northeast last October has aroused great expectations in the Region. The consequent appointment of a Commission to recommend measures to make good Infrastructural and Basic Minimum Service Gaps and a Committee on stimulating Employment is seen as indicative of serious intent to bring the Northeast on par with the rest of the country within the next five to ten years in a process of poverty alleviation and infrastructural upgradation. [High Level Commission Reportto the Prime Minister]
