The government of Nagaland formed the department of Nagaland State Transport (NST) with the aim to offer utility services to the residents of the state rather than to gain monetary benefits. The objective of the department is to provide economical, adequate, and efficient transports services to the people of Nagaland. The Nagaland State Transport was formed in the year 1965 to provide the services to the people who had no other way to commute from one place to another in the landlocked state whose most of the terrain is hilly and inaccessible. The role of NST has been creditable in improving the socio-economic condition of the people of the State. NST has also provided opportunity for the people to move from one place to another.  In the absence of any other means of transportation, the role of NST has been commendable.
