In 1972, the North East Frontier Agency was named Arunachal Pradesh and granted Union Territory status. It took 15 more years before Arunachal Pradesh attained its statehood. Similarly, Mizoram got its name after Lushai Hills district was declared a union territory in 1972. Mizoram became a full-fledged federal state of Indian Union in 1986. The Mizoram Peace Accord was signed between the Mizo National Front and the Union Government on June 30, 1986 and after the accord, Mizoram attained statehood on February 20, 1987.
