This paper has two basic objectives: (1) to analyse the structure of the Small Scale Industries (SSis) of North-Eastern states of India, (2) to review the current status of SSIs in rural areas in comparison with urban areas. The empirical analysis concludes that the numbers of SSIs are inadequate in this region which is reflexive of overall underdevelopment in terms of industrialization. The most of the states are passing through the preliminary state of industrialization.
