This innovative strategy is a departure from the Armed Forces Special Powers Act and addresses the problem of insurgency through positive means of partnership of the government on one hand and with the related government agencies on the other.

In order to restore normalcy in the region, the state has adopted counter-insurgency measures that includes a strategy of agreements and negotiations rather than fighting directly against the insurgent groups. The signing of the Ceasefire Agreement or the Suspension of Operations between the State, the Center and the insurgent outfit indicates positive developments such as the groups will not engage in violent armed conflict or in any illegal activities. Institutional mechanisms have been developed to initiate a dialogue process during conflict between the parties such as the Church in Nagaland. A Joint Monitoring Group comprising representatives of the Government of India, State Government, Security Forces and the concerned outfits also periodically review the implementation of the code of conduct. The Ministry of Home Affairs, State Government, paramilitary forces and the willing insurgent group plays a pivotal role for the success of the Ceasefire Agreement or the Suspension of Operations.
