History of North-East

The northeastern states were established during the British Raj of the 19th and early 20th centuries when they became relatively isolated from traditional trading partners such as Bhutan and Myanmar.[11] Many of the peoples in present-day Mizoram, Meghalaya, and Nagaland converted to Christianity under the influence of British (Welsh) missionaries. After Indian Independence from British Rule in 1947, the Northeastern region of British India consisted of Assam and the princely states of Manipur and Tripura. Subsequently, Nagaland in 1963, Meghalaya in 1972, Arunachal Pradesh in 1975 (capital changed to Itanagar) (formed on 20 February 1987) and Mizoram in 1987 were formed out of the large territory of Assam.[13] Manipur and Tripura remained as Union Territories of India between 1956 until 1972, when they attained fully-fledged statehood. Sikkim was integrated as the eighth North Eastern Council state in 2002.
