|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
A core objective of the 11th Five-Year Plan (2007-2012) of the Government is reducing regional disparities. Investments in infrastructure and services in the North Eastern Region (NER), one of India's less-developed regions, are priority. The 10th and 11th plans highlight the vital role of capital cities in NER's socioeconomic transformation. Given the difficult access to and remoteness of NER, the capital cities perform a function of a much higher order than other cities of similar size in India. With the opening up of trade with neighboring countries and the emergence of transport corridors in the region, these cities are expected to play an even greater strategic role in NER's economy as commercial and business hubs besides being administrative centers. Investments in urban infrastructure and services will be the key to unleashing the potential of these cities to catalyze the growth of NER.
The 11th plan also stresses the importance of improving the quality of governance and service delivery systems, to pace NER's development. NERCCDIP, as well as the sector road maps from which it is derived, is guided by this policy framework. Its aim is to contribute to the Government's goal of bringing the NER up to par with developed regions of India. The Program links capital investments to reforms for sustainable impact. It targets the capital cities that will spearhead the development of NER linking India to the neighboring states.
