The North Eastern Council (NEC) has okayed building up  roads, measuring 615 km, which will be constructed under the North-East Road Sector Development Scheme (NERSDS),an official statement said in Shillong.

The North Eastern Council is the nodal agency for the economic and social development of the North Eastern region of India.

Construction of 67 km-long Mebo-Dholla road connecting Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, the 51 km-long road between Tening (Nagaland) and Lekie (Assam), upgrade of National Highway (NH) 202 and NH-150, and upgrade of NH-2 to Dikhu bridge via Longmisa in Nagaland will take place under this scheme, reported the Times of India.
