In the state of Assam, due to the ongoing insurgency, the Unified Headquarters Mechanism was established in the early 90’s wherein, the Strategy Group functions under the Chief Secretary and the Operational Group is headed by the Tezpur based GOC Gajraj Corps. While strategic issues are deliberated upon in the former, the latter is responsible for formulating and streamlining the conduct of CI/CT Operations at the operational and tactical level. The smooth and efficient functioning of both these groups has resulted in overall improvement and stabilization of the CI/CT situation in the state of Assam.
