Arunachal Pradesh is one of the 28 states of India. Located in northeast India, Arunachal Pradesh borders the states of Assam and Nagaland to the south, and shares international borders with Bhutan in the west, Myanmar in the east and the People's Republic of China in the north. Itanagar is the capital of the state. China claims most of the state as part of Tibet and calls the disputed area South Tibet.

Arunachal Pradesh also known as the "land of the dawn-lit mountains". Literally it means the "land of the rising sun" in reference to its position as the easternmost state of India. It is also known as the "Orchid State of India" or the "Paradise of the Botanists". Geographically, it is the largest among the North-east Indian states commonly known as the Seven Sister States. As in other parts of Northeast India, the people native to the state trace their origins from the Tibeto-Burman and Mongoloid race. A large number of migrants from various other parts of India and foreign lands have and have been affecting the state's population.

No reliable population count of the migrant population exists, and the percentage estimating the total actual population accordingly vary. Arunachal Pradesh has the highest number of regional languages among Indian states. Enriched with diverse culture and traditions.
