IAF to Reactivate Airfield in Arunachal

Filed On: Nov 17, 2011 19:46 IST

Against the backdrop of Chinese military infrastructure build up along its borders, India will tomorrow activate an airfield in Vijaynagar in Arunachal Pradesh from where it will be able to operate its latest C-130J Hercules transport aircraft.

"The use of this airfield was discontinued in 2009 for carrying put repairs there. The airfield will be reactivated tomorrow by Arunachal Pradesh Governor General (retd) J J Singh," IAF officials said here.

After repairs, the airfield-- situated on the easternmost tip of the country located at the tri-junction of India, China and Myanmar, will be able to operate the C-130J Super Hercules aircraft along with the Antonov-32 cargo planes in the IAF inventory, they added.

The airfield is used for air maintenance and will help in mobilising troops and equipment at a faster pace in times of requirement.

This is the first ALG in the Northeast to be upgraded as part of India's efforts to match Chinese military infrastructure development activities. It is also upgrading ALGs in Pasighat, Mechuka, Walong, Tuting and Ziro as well as several helipads in Arunachal.

IAF has so far activated its ALGs in Ladakh including Nyoma, Daulat Beg Oldi and Fukche and is planning to convert Nyoma in to a full-fledged air base.

India is also planning to raise a new Mountain Strike Corps after raising two new mountain infantry divisions to increase man power in the Northeast.

Manipur to have 2 new Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya

To be set up in Ukhrul and Senapati districts, each of the JNV will have classes from VI to XII and a capacity for 560 students in the school
Submitted on 11/16/2011 - 10:52:59 AM


New Delhi: The Union Cabinet on Wednesday gave its approval for setting up of two new Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) in districts of Ukhrul and Senapati in Manipur.

These two JNVs will be made operational after getting possession of requisite land from the Government of Manipur for temporary operation.

Each of the JNV will have classes from VI to XII and a capacity for 560 students in the school. The total estimated expenditure on these two JNVs is Rs 72 crore during 12th and 13th plan period.

Ukhrul and Senapati districts already have a JNV each but the districts cannot be covered fully due to the difficult terrain of the area and the tribal demography.

The new schools will cater to the educational requirements of the children in the uncovered areas of these districts.

Thumbs up NE's largest power project to ease electricity woes

Agartala, Nov 21 (IANS): The electricity crisis in northeastern India is set to ease when the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation's (ONGC) first mega power project -- the largest in the region -- starts generating power by April next year.

"State-owned ONGC's 726-MW generating capacity first major power project in India will start producing electricity from April next year," a Tripura Power Department official told IANS.

The gas-based thermal power project will resolve the power crisis of Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Nagaland, Mizoram and Tripura states. It is being commissioned at southern Tripura's Palatana, 60 km from here.

"State-run National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has been working to extend the power transmission line from Palatana to the national power grid at Bongaigaon in western Assam," the official said. "From the national power grid at Bongaigaon, the electricity will be disseminated in Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Nagaland and Mizoram," he said.

"Subsequently, the project will be able to generate 1,000 MW of power if additional machineries are integrated with the operational turbines," he added.

Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar Saturday reviewed the progress of the works for commissioning of the Rs 9,000-crore power plant, for which Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had laid the foundation stone in 2005.

Expansion of FM Radio in NE



SILCHAR, Nov 21: FM Radio which has become popular and a craze among younger generations in metropolitan and other major cities for their spicy programmes and equally smart voices is yet to make inroad in north-east substantially.

Some FM channels – Radio Ooo Laa Laa, Big FM and Gup-Shup of the region-have caught the psyche of music lovers. Considering the reach and range of FM and its commercial potentiality, the ministry of information and broadcasting has plan to expand it in north-east. According to official sources, it has approved the policy guidelines on expansion which will provide incentives to private enterprises. One of the thrust areas of the policy, as spelt out by the ministry, is to promote private broadcasters in north-east region. The policy provides for special incentives to make the operators financially viable.

The private operators, according to the guidelines, will have to pay annual fee to the government of India which will be at reduced rate compared to the other states of the country. The permission period covers 15 years. The existing operators will benefit from the policy and enable them to compete with the new entrants in the field. Apart from that, Prasar Bharati infrastructure would be made available again at reduced rates to the private operators. The operators will also get the benefit above the national limit to bid for channels in the north-east. With such incentives, it is expected that private operators will venture into the FM Radio arena and make it as popular as satellite news and music channels.

"We will promote package tours from Kolkata to all the northeastern states. But Meghalaya will be our top priority," said Rachhpal Singh, the tourism minister of West Bengal, who was here recently to attend the 2nd inter-state regional conference of tourism ministers of eastern and northeastern states. Stating that the new government was promoting tourism on a "war footing", Singh said the sector was the priority area.

Three North-east States could get own High courts soon

Agartala, Nov 27: Tripura, Manipur and Meghalaya could soon get their own high courts that would help in quicker disposal of cases, save litigants time and money, and fulfil a long-standing demand of these states.

All the eight North-eastern states, excluding Sikkim, come under the jurisdiction of the Gauhati High Court situated in Assam. It has benches in several northeastern states. Sikkim has a separate high court.

“All necessary infrastructure for the establishment of separate high courts is ready in three northeastern states — Tripura, Manipur and Meghalaya,” a Tripura law department official said, not wishing to be identified as he was not authorised to make the announcement.

The central government needs to amend the North-eastern Areas (Reorganisation) Act, 1971, to set up separate high courts in the three states.

“The union Ministry of Law and Justice, on persuasion from the three state governments, had finalised the draft amendment of the act,” the official said on condition of anonymity.

Thumbs up SBI opens Bank on Wheels in Meghalaya

Shillong, Nov. 28: The State Bank of India today launched Bank on Wheels, a campaign to reach out to people in the rural hinterland in Meghalaya who are outside of the banking network.

But the SBI is not alone in this endeavour. It has teamed up with the Meghalaya Rural Development Society (MRDS) which will motivate villagers to open bank accounts.

The Bank on Wheels is a van to be operated by SBI and MRDS officials. The officials will be moving from one village to another to help villagers not only to open accounts, but also to inculcate in them financial literacy.

“The van will cover around five villages in a week, and it is anticipated that all 39 unbaked villages in Meghalaya would be covered soon,” A. Krishna Kumar, SBI managing director, Mumbai, said, while launching the Bank on Wheels.

While stating that opening of accounts by the villagers would be hassle-free, Kumar said, “We will only be asking for a certificate from the village headman for identification of a prospective account holder.”

Kumar said at present, around 50 per cent of the country’s population is outside the banking network.

“We are striving towards inculcation of financial literacy and awareness about banking habits among the rural populace,” the SBI official said.

Kumar also said in Meghalaya, the SBI has been asked to create banking facilities in 662 unbanked villages by March next year.


Till date, he said, the bank has managed to cover 496 villages and the remaining would be covered through initiatives like the Bank on Wheels.

The SBI managing director said the bank, with the help of MRDS, would extend loans to villagers with the intention of doing away with moneylenders.

India exploring new waterways with Bangladesh

State-owned RITES will conduct the survey for the new waterways between India's Tripura state and Bangladesh to facilitate movement of goods
Submitted on 11/29/2011 - 10:49:47 AM
By Sujit Chakraborty

Agartala: India will soon conduct a survey for new waterways with Bangladesh, a move that would facilitate the movement of goods between the two countries.

State-owned RITES (Rail India Technical and Economic Services) will conduct the survey for the new waterways between India's Tripura state and Bangladesh, a top official said.

The waterways would be rivers that would have navigation facilities for smooth movement of vessels.

"RITES had earlier this year conducted a preliminary feasibility study to make new waterways between Tripura's Gomti and Howrah rivers and Bangladesh's Meghna and Titas rivers," Tripura Transport Department Secretary Kishore Ambuly said.

"Now RITES would conduct an in-depth study for the purpose and submit a detailed project report (DPR) to the Tripura government," he said.

India and Bangladesh share 2,979 km of land border and 1,116 km of riverine boundary. The two neighbours share 54 rivers, including eight rivers flowing from Tripura.

Hi Guys !

I'm from France but I'm very interested by all stuffs concerning north-eastern India. This thread may not be the appropriate one to ask this question but don't you think that strengthening the ties between India and Myanmar (which is currently seeking for new political partners) would be a great opportunity to open up the north-eastern Indian states ?
