As the contemporary world is heading towards a global-village, free-market system and international cooperation, border regions are seen not as constraints but as new opportunities. However, as things stand today, it is difficult to foresee India’s enhanced economic ties with eastern neighbor China. Consequently, border areas of Arunachal Pradesh have suffered considerably. There enveloped a thick cloud of poverty, illiteracy, lack of basic amenities of life in the border areas. This is further aggravated when by a simultaneous all-round development across the borders by the Chinese government. The paper provides valuable new insights into the present nature and extent of the problems of border areas in the Arunachal borderlands.
