Abstract: Indian economy’s fastest growing global tag has much deeper stories that varies from resistance to second generation reforms to ‘make in India’ initiative and diluting its traditional position on primary commodities at the global negotiations to steady opening of the services sector to FDI . Huge regional disparities and deepening poverty continue to remain a challenge. How a widely discussed periphery – eight states of North East Region (NER) – endeavours to reposition itself in the larger development dynamics of India is an interesting story itself. The NER, an overwhelmingly hilly and agricultural, has most prolific natural resources, ethnic diversity and straddles five international borders.  A region with an acute infrastructure-connectivity deficit that remains outside the ‘growth pole’ posing serious development dislocation.
