The Northeast India region has witnessed an 80 percent decline in insurgency-related incidents since 2014 when the Narendra Modi-led government came to power at the Centre.

According to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), around 6,000 insurgents from different groups have surrendered in these years.

In fact, the years 2019 and 2020 witnessed the lowest number of insurgency incidents and casualties of civilians and security forces during the last two decades.

According to MHA data, a total of 824 insurgency-related incidents had taken place in the region in 2014, while the number of incidents have reduced to 574 in 2015, 484 in 2016, 308 in 2017, 252 in 2018, 223 in 2019, 163 in 2020.

A total of 209 insurgency-related incidents had taken place in 2021 and it came down to 158 in 2022. From 2014 to 2022, a total of 587 extremists got killed in counter-insurgency operations while 10,107 extremists were arrested by security forces and 128 security personnel have lost their lives during the period.

The MHA data stated that during the period security forces recovered 4,662 numbers of weapons from the extremists. After taking tough steps taken against the insurgent groups by the Modi government, there has been a significant improvement in the security situation of the Northeast.

A new scheme, ‘The Prime Minister’s Development Initiative for the North-East’ (PM-DevINE), was announced in the Union Budget 2022-23 with an initial allocation of 1,500 crore rupees.
