Northern Region Development Council


Northern region, one of the largest regions in India constitutes 30.8 percent of country’s total area and 31 percent of the country’s population, contributing over 26 percent to the national GDP. This region has numerous unique strengths such as significant pool of highly skilled and unskilled labour, abundance of natural resources, vast land banks, growing infrastructure, continuous government support and many more.
