INTRODUCTION


1.       A need was felt to raise a new Project to give the much needed impetus to the development of roads and infrastructure in Arunachal Pradesh.  Accordingly Project Brahmank commenced its raising at Ranaghat, East Siang Dirstict, Arunachal Pradesh on 29 Jun 2011. Raising of Project Brahmank was completed by end of Nov 2011 and Project became fully functional wef 03 Dec 2011.


2.       The name of the Project is derived from its location at the bank of River Brahmaputra which is a known as River Siang in this part of the country. The Project acquired its symbol from the State Animal of Arunachal Pradesh ‘Mithun’ (BosFrontails) the commonly found animal in the wild and semi-domestic form. This animal has religious significance and intimate relation with socio-cultural life of the people. Traditionally, the Mithun is a unit of wealth.


3.       The Area of Responsibility of the Project was carved out of the AOR of Project Arunank and Project Udayak. At present, Area of responsibility of Project Brahmank is spread over in four districts of Arunachal Pradesh i.e. East Siang, Upper Siang and Lower Dibang District and one District of Assam i.e. Dhemaji district. The road sector of the Project commencing from Akajan to Dhemaji district of Assam extends to Along-Tato-Mechuka-Yarlung, Tato-Manigong-Tadadege in West Siang District and Along-Ditte-Dime-Migging-Tuting-Bona-Gelling in Upper Siang District of Arunachal Pradesh and Jonai-Ranaghat-Dambuk-Bomjir in East Siang and Lower Dibang District of Arunachal Pradesh.
