History

At the time of India's independence from the British Raj in 1947, only three states of Manipur, Tripura and Assam existed. The four new states were carved out in the later years. Nagaland achieved statehood in 1963, followed by Meghalaya in 1972. Mizoram became a Union Territory in 1972, and became a separate state, along with Arunachal Pradesh - in 1987.
