Report of the working group on improvement and development of transport infrastructure in the North East for the National Transport Development Policy Committee (NTDPC)

It is for the first time that while formulating National Transport Policy, a separate attention has been paid to the transport needs of the North Eastern Region. The Working Group decided to look at the situation under three categories: Intra-Regional Need; Inter-Regional Need; and Trans Border Movement. The Working Group also examined the needs for various possible sectors viz. Road, Rail, Civil Aviation and Inland Water Transport to arrive at a holistic picture. The objective of the Transportation Development Strategy for the North Eastern Region is to promote and support the balanced and equitable economic development of the region.
