The Government will set up a North East Cultural Centre here to promote rich and diverse culture and heritage of the region.
The Centre will be set up jointly by the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DONER) and the Culture Ministry.
DONER Minister B K Handique said the Centre will be established within the complex of Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) at Dwarka in West Delhi.
“This is one of the outcomes of discussions Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had with a delegation of students from the North East in December 2009,” Mr. Handique said.
He said the NECC will be a permanent platform in the national capital for cultural exchange not only among the people of the North East living in Delhi but also with those from other parts of the country.
