Northeast’s First Smart Village

Gogoi: Protection Force Coming for People in the Border Areas
  • A remote nondescript, insurgency-ravaged village in Assam along Indo- Bhutan border has earned the distinction of being the area’s first smart village. Barsimaluguri, about 11 km from the Indo-Bhutan border, in Baksa district has been turned into a model smart village with 100 per cent toilets, solar power and pure drinking water.
  • The initiative was taken by a few individuals under the aegis of Nanda Talukdar Foundation (NTF).
