NEFTi (North East Forum for Technical Institutions) is the first of its kind initiative with an objective to work for co-ordination among all the private AICTE approved Technical Institutions of North East India. Other objectives of the organization include- improving the quality of technical education, stimulating the industrialization by providing world class technical manpower, providing a talent pool of budding engineers to prospective recruiters, publish scientific journals, organize inter-college competitions amongst the students of member organizations for betterment of students, provide guidance & coaching facility for higher education & research and much more.

NEFTi has successfully organized NEFTi 20-Twenty Cricket Tournament’, NEFTi Football Tournament and NEFTi Volleyball Tournament .

Higher & technical educational scenario of NE region have been drastically changing from last 5 years and although facilities of world class institutions are now available in North East itself, every year a large number of students from the region  fall in the trap of not only  fake institutions but also some approved institutions without required facilities because of  their  colorful advertisement and aggressive marketing . 

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) only statutory body of Govt of India that grants approval to the institutes to run  the courses in management studies(post graduate), engineering, pharmacy, architecture, hotel management and catering etc. provided the institute is  affiliated to any university.
