The Integration of North Eastern Region of India into the main stream governance was a humongous task that was faced by newly independent nation amidst the already surfacing socio-political challenges as a result of the collapse of the century old colonial rule. This necessitated the founding fathers not only to integrate and hold the nation together at one hand but also inculcate dissent to re-engage within the established belief of democracy and self-determination in the minds of the populace. Adhering to this belief the subsequent governments of free India further enabled the patience for policy of democratic interweaving through a series of measures in premediated or sometimes situational stages that can be attribute to 3D – Dialogue, Democracy and Development. The 3D policy of the Government of India is flexible inclusive policy which it uses to tackle and mitigate many of its domestic challenges and limitation. This paper will only deal with the implementation of this policy in regard to integrating seemingly believed to be completely contrasting ethnic way of living into the ambit of wider idea of democracy and institutional governance, something which was rendered to be impossible by the experts when India started its journey as Independent democratic nation.
