This book tries to analyse how the mass use of information technology (IT) can change the North East India into a progressive business destination. Taking stock of socio-economic condition of the north east region as well as the present IT scenario, it deals with the e-governance and the key role played by financial institutions like BANARD. It argues that information technology is now only an urban phenomenon, but it brings two uneven people together on equal level. The book will be useful for researchers, policy-makers and development workers.
