Arunachal Pradesh’s government believes that the border areas’ development will benefit the state. The Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, with his government, has thus engaged themselves in developing the regions. They are working on increasing connectivity in the areas. The government is also facilitating improved agricultural practices in the border areas.

The Chief Minister, Pema Khandu, has informed the media that the initiative is impacting the state positively. The Chief Minister asserted that they are witnessing a positive trend in reverse migration. The politician believes the government’s border development initiative is responsible for the positive change. Notably, half of the state’s population lives in the border areas.


While visiting his village in the border area of Arunachal Pradesh, CM Khandu observed that the regions need help with several issues, like connectivity, weak resource base, mountainous terrain, and infrastructural bottlenecks. These issues force people to migrate to developed areas.

The government is, accordingly, making positive changes to address the issues. The government uses ‘Atmanirbhar’ schemes and ‘Mission Krishi Veer’ to increase the supply of fresh fruits and vegetables. The authorities will use these increased supplies for the armed forces.

Accordingly, the government has taken several initiatives to ensure the well-rounded development of the state’s border areas. The government has partnered with the private sector to use space technology and drones to develop border areas. The voluntary organizations also contacted the government to help build the border region.

Notably, Arunachal Pradesh has the longest international border in the country, totalling 1,863 km. Of this, the state’s boundary with Tibet stretches for 1,126 km. Accordingly, the border regions are an important area that needs adequate attention from the state’s authorities.

The central government of India is also assisting Arunachal Pradesh in their mandate. The Center has recently started the Vibrant Village Programme. The programme will cover 455 border villages of the state. It aims to bring interventions such as income-generating activities, connectivity and improving social infrastructure
