NECTAR is conceived as a collaborative centre of excellence to resolve the last
mile problem in the delivery, induction, management, use and extension of
technology applications which serve public good and promote social and
economic development of the North Eastern region in the broadest possible
terms. The overall operational aim is to infuse, build and sustain a culture of
gainful applications of technology at the ground level among users and to fill
the void that persists at present in reaching to people, communities and end
users technology applications that remain unavailable to them. The focus and
emphasis of technology induction and extension is clearly on applications that
serve public good; that create livelihoods and employment, particularly among
the poor and disadvantaged communities; that promote equitable economic
growth; improve productivity in all areas; promote efficient and effective use of
local and natural resources; contribute to safety and a cleaner environment and
are socially desirable.

NECTAR has supported various bamboo board
manufacturing units. However due to absence
of marketing & advertisement and high cost
(compared to plywood etc.), these units are
getting enormous competition from the existing
plywood market. To address the problem of
marketing, NECTAR has taken an initiative to
support the supported units in terms of marketing
their various available products in major markets
in India. To start with it NECTAR has initiated
The marketing in Delhi NCR,
NECTAR has been trying to get various bamboo
processing units to take up furniture making
which offers substantial value addition. Various
options with bamboo mat board, with veneer,
bamboo timber (from Mizoram and Tripura)
and varied looks, especially distressed, have
been developed. The items manufactured are
chest of drawers, coffee table, centre table,
bench, side table, sofa, dining chair, stray chairs
etc. NECTAR has also participated in High Point
market exhibition and displayed the developed
furniture. Good response was received.
India has a rich tradition of using natural dyes.
In the north eastern states, natural dyes are still
used for domestic as well as commercial purpose
NECTAR, in association with Meghalaya
Government, is conducting a study for
preservation of locally available natural
dye yielding plant varieties. The objective is
to use scientific management practices for mass
production of these plant species which are on
verge of extinction.
Agarbatti industry offers sustainable potential
for rural enterprise. Domination of big market
players in this industry is leaving majority of the
small stick manufacturers with insufficient
margins. NECTAR is attempting to empower
these stick manufacturers. They are being
trained for taking up rolling and perfuming
facilities for producing quality product at
marginal price leading to higher value addition.
This is one industry which has substantial
employment potential especially the rural
North Eastern Region is endowed with a varied topography and agro-climatic
conditions which offer vast potential for agriculture, horticulture and forestry.
Out of spices available in North east states, ginger and turmeric are the major
contributors. Ginger produced in NER has high oil and oleoresin content, making
it one of the best in quality.
