About Nagaland Statehood Day

Nagaland Formation Day is marked annually on 1 December. In 1957 leaders of Nagaland and the Government of India came to an agreement to create a separate region of the Naga Hills. To grant statehood to Nagaland, ‘ The State of Nagaland Act’ was enacted by the Parliament in 1962. On 1 December 1963, the region was recognised as a separate state, with Kohima being declared as the capital of Nagaland. This day is celebrated by remembering the struggle and sacrifice of Naga leaders who contributed to the formation of Nagaland as the 16th state of India.
