And there is a piece of good news for all the travellers to the region, Under the International Udaan Scheme- Guwahati, a major town in the North- Eastern States will soon be connected with Kathmandu, Dhaka, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Yangon, and Malaysia.
The Authorities have already released INR 10.9 Cr and bidding to select the operators has also been done. The Government has also committed INR 100 Cr to the Centre for the viability gap funding.
