The Office of the Additional Director General (E) (North East Zone) had started its activities with a small contingent of officers and staff in a small building in Guwahati, since November 1999. As the Additional Director General (E) (North East Zone) Office was to play a catalytic role in the infrastructure development of broadcast stations in the North East, the need was felt to augment the Staff Strength and the Office infrastructure for the Zonal Office at Guwahati. This was done by posting a number of Officers and staff and hiring approximately 10000 sq.ft. for new office accommodation near Ganeshguri Flyover.The Zonal Office was declared to be fully functional w.e.f. 1.4.2003. The possession of the new Office building was taken on 1.4.2003.
