Abstract: This paper examines the case of north eastern states of India in the framework of HIPC type of
debt relief measures and observed that the impact of debt servicing on the developmental
expenditure has been heterogeneous in the case of NE states and does not show any significant
dominancy over public spending for socio economic development rather the high interest burden
is the major obstacle to achieve debt sustainability. Further, high average cost of borrowing leads
to the high cost of debt servicing. Therefore, HIPC type of debt relief measure or a direct debt
relief measures may not be suitable for the Indian NE states but relief measures should be
directed in the direction of making the borrowing cheaper which will be helpful to augment the
developmental capital expenditure. It is recommended that policy measure can be under taken so
as to make the NE states able to get relived from high cost of borrowing and increasing
unsustainable debt burden.
