In a written reply in Lok Sabha today, he said that the State-wise details of total projects underway under NLCPR scheme and those delayed by more than three years and less than three years but more than one year are enclosed at Annexure - I. Details of development projects underway at present with central assistance through the North Eastern Council and those delayed by more than three years and less than three years but more than one year are enclosed at Annexure - II.
