April 2002 marked the beginning of the collaborative Global Positioning System (GPS) based Geodesy work in North East India to study the present-day deformation in the13; Arunachal Himalayas and the Shillong Plateau. Although C -MMACS had operated campaign mode stations in the Shillong Plateau (Shillong Peak and Tura) and at Guwahati earlier, this campaign marks the beginning of an extensive and concentrated effort in the region. Permanent GPS stations at Shillong (already operational) and at Tezpur, Guwahati, Mokukchung, Imphal and Aizwal (to be operational) supported by campaign mode stations should generate enough information to work out the present day deformation in North East India. This would give us an insight into the compressive deformation near the eastern syntaxis of the Himalayan Mountain belt and the formation of the Shillong Plateau. This will involve the setting up of six permanent GPS stations in NE India and several campaign mode stations that will be continuously monitored over the next several years to gain an insight into the above questions.
