Being at the periphery of postcolonial India’s industrial development, North East India (NEI) gained policy attention only during post-liberalization period. This paper explores the impact of the Industrial Policy in NEI, Data showed no remarkable achievement of industrial growth in the organized sector in the aftermath of such a policy. Thus, the region is in need to expand its industrial base, suitable to its topography and ecology. Given the intra-regional diversities and topographical vulnerability, the existing uniform Industrial Policy for NEI may not be able to meet the required demand. The paper therefore suggests a different policy perspective to address issues between Assam and rest of the states of NEI within a hillplain binary.
