Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in first week of July 2015 extended the ‘disturbed area’ status of Nagaland for one more year. The ‘disturbed status’ area became effective from 30 June 2015 and will be in effect until 30 June 2016.

The Home Ministry in its notification said that the government is of the opinion that the entire state is in such a "disturbed" and "dangerous" condition that the use of armed forces in aid of civil power is necessary.

Complete Nagaland was declared as a disturbed area for a period of one year in exercise of the powers conferred to Union Government by Section 3 of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act 1958.

The decision came almost a month after NSCN-(Khaplang), the dominant Naga rebel group, attacked an army convoy in Manipur’s Chandel district and killed 18 soldiers.

Since 2005, the Nagaland government by citing the falling levels of insurgency-related incidents or deaths has been seeking removal of the 'disturbed' area tag from the state.
