Transfer of information is considered as a basic requisite for determining the future activities of economic and social development of a region. Particularly the grass root level administration needs such facilities. The predominantly rural nature of northeast emphasizes the need to bring about a sustainable development of the rural areas and its people, in order to cope up with other developed parts of India. However, despite the best efforts, rural areas have not been able to keep pace with its urban counterpart. In order to abolish these developmental imbalances and to give due priority to development in rural areas, efforts are going on in Northeast also. This Paper highlights the efforts of some leading E-Governance institutions in promoting rural development in the Northeast region (Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura) and tried to find out an overall view, challenges and remedies concerned in this regard.
