The first Regional Centre of the Institute was established at Guwahati on 14th November, 1978 to cater to the regional requirements of research and training in the field of women and child development in the seven North Eastern States. Later on, the jurisdiction of Regional Centre Guwahati was expanded to include the states of Odisha, Sikkim and West Bengal. Thus, Regional Centre, Guwahati presently caters to training needs of ten States of Eastern India namely Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Orissa, Sikkim, Tripura and West Bengal. The Regional Centre is headed by a Regional Director. The Regional Director is assisted by the faculty members on all academic matters and the Assistant Administrative Officer and the Accounts Officer on matters relating to the administration and accounts respectively.
