The Ministry, in an official statement, said that Ceasefire Agreements are in operation between the Government of India and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-NK (NSCN-NK), National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Reformation (NSCN/R) and National Socialist Council of Nagaland K-Khango (NSCN K-Khango).

"It was decided to extend the Ceasefire Agreements for a further period of one year with effect from April 28, 2022, to April 27, 2023, with NSCN-NK and NSCN-R and from April 18, 2022, to April 17, 2023, with NSCN K-Khango. These agreements were signed on April 19, 2022," said the statement.

The Ministry said that the initiative is fulfilling the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "insurgency free and prosperous North East" and is a significant boost to the Naga peace process, under the guidance of Union Minister of Home Affairs and Minister of Cooperation Amit Shah.
