Northeast India is the eastern-most region of India connected to East India via a narrow corridor squeezed between Bhutan and Bangladesh. It comprises the contiguous Seven Sister States (Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura), plus the Himalayan state of Sikkim. These states are grouped under the MDONER ministry of the Government of India. Except for the Goalpara region of Assam, the rest were late entrants to the British India, the Brahmaputra valley area of Assam became a part of British India in 1824, and the hill regions were incorporated even later. Sikkim was annexed to the Indian union through a referendum in 1975 and was recognized as part of Northeast India in the 1990s. The northeastern region (NER) of India is generally considered to be a backward enclave of a progressing economy and one of the most challenging regions of the country in terms of huge potentials to growth opportunities. The NE comprises of eight north-eastern states of India and these states are officially under the umbrella of North Eastern Council (NEC), constituted in 1971 as the acting agency for the development of the eight states and also by the Central Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) and the North Eastern Development Finance Corporation Ltd (NEDFi)[1].

The Siliguri Corridor in West Bengal, with a width of 21 to 40 kilometres (13 to 25 mi), connects the North Eastern region with the main part of India. The region shares more than 4,500 kilometres (2,800 mi) of international border (about 90 per cent of its entire border area) with China (southern Tibet) in the north, Myanmar in the east, Bangladesh in the southwest, and Bhutan to the northwest.

The states are officially recognised under the North Eastern Council (NEC), constituted in 1971 as the acting agency for the development of the eight states.
