Agricultural Policy

Arunachal Pradesh is slowly developing its economy with the objective of improving the quality of life of its people. The task ahead are up hill, the resources available are plenty but the ways and means to achieve the objective through gainful utilization of the resources are not well defined.

Technology has been relegated to the back resulting in stagnation of growth. However, the state has gained much over the years, it is now necessary to consolidate the gains in order to make it sustainable and add new dimension during the comong years, so as to increase household income generation.


Industrial Policy of Arunachal Pradesh 2008

Arunachal Pradesh, the largest in area amongst the Northeastern States of India, is endowed with plenty of natural resources, which need to be converted into goods and services for the development of the State and its people. At present, the industrial growth in the State is dismal and at a nascent stage despite enormous potential for industrial growth.


Disaster Management Policy

The state of Arunachal Pradesh ('the State') is very prone to various types of natural and manmade disasters and is especially vulnerable to earthquakes as it is located in Seismic Zone V. The Government of Arunachal Pradesh ('GoAP') recognizes the need for a proactive, comprehensive and sustained approach to disaster management to reduce the detrimental effects of disasters on the overall socio-economic development of the state. GoAP believes that a policy that articulates its vision and strategy for disaster management in the state is required. In this context the Arunachal Pradesh Disaster Management Authority (APDMA), with a view to provide guidelines to the various entities involved in disaster management in the state to discharge their functions more effectively, has formulated the Arunachal Pradesh Disaster Management Policy ('APDMP' or 'the Policy').



Hydro Power Policy - 2008

Arunachal Pradesh is the land of mountains, forests and rivers inhabited by tribal people and the mountainous topography of the state presents an ideal condition for the development of hydro-electric projects. There are five major river basins in the state namely Kameng River Basin, Subansiri River Basin, Siang River Basin, Dibang River Basin and Lohit River Basin. All the major rivers of the State flow in the North-easterly direction and finally drain into the Brahmaputra River. There are many tributaries and distributaries of the said major rivers which also offer suitable sites for the development of hydro-electric power projects.



Public Private Partnership (PPP)

The future development of the country hinges on the development of its infrastructure and efficient delivery of its services. The Planning Commission, Government of India estimates that around US$320 billion (14, 50,000 Cr. INR) is likely to be invested in the infrastructure sector over the 11th Plan. A large part of this investment is to come from the private sector with Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode as one of the preferred routes. The PPP approach is best suited for the infrastructure sector as it supplements scarce public resources, creates a more competitive environment and helps to improve efficiencies and reduce costs. To achieve this goal, Government of Arunachal Pradesh has come out with the Arunachal Pradesh Public Private Partnership Policy-2011.
