Business MInutes

Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, North East India has witnessed a historic transformation, with security, peace, and development taking centre stage for the first time in decades. Over the last 9 years, there has been a significant improvement in the security situation. Compared to the year 2014, there is a reduction of 76% in extremist incidents in the year 2022. Similarly, the casualties of security personnel and civilians have come down by 90% and 97% respectively in 2022 as compared to 2014.

Several peace accords have also been signed in the last 9 years, as a result of which, most of the extremist groups have laid down their arms and became partners in the peace and development of the North East. From 2014 till now more than 8000 insurgents have surrendered. Thedisturbed areas under Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) have been completely withdrawn from Tripura (2015) and Meghalaya (2018) and significantly reduced in Nagaland, Assam and Manipur. From being on the margins of the India story, the Northeast is quickly becoming one of the country’s growth engines.
