Thus, a network namely North East Social Security Network (NESSN) was formed with nine organizations to carry forward the process in Northeast. The State consultation is a part of this process.

The consultation aims at understanding detail about RSBY, understanding the implementation plan of the scheme at the state level and to discuss about the role of NGOs for its proper implementation.

The consultation will be attended by State Government' officials, NGOs, Social Organizations, Development and Research Institutes, academicians and media persons.
