Infrastructure[edit]

As such the local administration didn't do much for the development of Diyun Bazaar. The condition of infrastructure is worrisome. It Take almost 2 hours to reach Diyun from Namsai, India which is only 32 km. Another infrastructure parameter electricity, which though present but would be better without it. Since the last 20 years the capacity of the Diyun transformer was not changed or augmented. With the rapid increase in population of Diyun with the building of IRBN Headquarters, EAC office, BDO office along with the electrification of peripheral villages, The consumption of electricity has increased manifold. But the transformer was never augmented to carry the load. There is 5–10 hours of load shedding daily. The people of Diyun are Buddhists. They have been following Buddhism since a long time.
