Addressing the Needs of Children in North Eastern Region

To facilitate the States in the North Eastern Region in addressing the needs of children, special dispensation has been provided in Government schemes for these States, and the ratio for funding by the Centre and States has been kept at 90:10 as opposed to 50:50 or 75:25 for other States as in the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) and the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) Scheme. 

This was stated by the Minister for Women and Child Development, Smt. Krishna Tirath, in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
