The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the allocation of 30 per cent of funds of the North-Eastern Council for new projects for focused development of deprived areas, neglected sections of society and emerging priority sectors.

The move will benefit marginalized and vulnerable groups of people in backward and neglected areas of the north-eastern States.
