Augurs on Nagaland Real Estate

Nagaland is a lively state situated in the northeastern part of India and borders the state of Assam to the west, Arunachal Pradesh to the north, Myanmar to the east, and Manipur to the south. The State has Dimapur, Kohima, Mokokchung, Tuensang, Wokha as its major cities and towns.This land of folklore, Nagaland has sought Central support for development of infrastructure in the state. In response, New Delhi has granted Rs. 2,600 crore for the execution of constructive activities in cities of Agartala and Kohima. The Nagaland government has been asked to submit a detailed project report for review by the Urban Development Ministry.

The Asian Development Bank has also come forward with a handsome investment of over USD 260 million for the development of the capital cities of five NE states including Nagaland. The project is likely to be over in the next six years and envisages bringing an array of infrastructure facilities including an excellent network of roads, water supply and drainage systems and slum area development.

Infrastructure bottleneck has been an outstanding problem of the state of Nagaland. However, urban development of Nagaland along with other Northeastern regions has been brought under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission programme which foresees improvement of basic urban infrastructure in these states as its major goal.

Nagaland is largely dependent on roads for transportation. A national highway runs from Dimapur to Kohima and then on to Imphal in Manipur. Another main road links Mokokchung with Amguri in Assam.

A short stretch of the Northeast Frontier Railway passing through Dimapur from Assam is the only rail link with the rest of India. Air service is accessible from Dimapur to Guwahati in Assam and to Calcutta in West Bengal. The rail network in the state is not very good but fine. The only airport in the state is Dimapur.

With the upcoming infrastructure policies for northeastern states, we can hope the best for Nagaland.
