Government of Nagaland notification No.AR-8/8/76 dated April 28, 1977 stated that in order to qualify as a non-Naga “indigenous inhabitant” of Nagaland, a person or his/her parents should have settled permanently in Nagaland prior to December 1, 1963. It also states that permanent settlement shall also include a person or his/her parents whose name has been entered in the electoral roll published on December 5, 1963. And the person or his/her parents should have acquired property and patta on it prior to December 1, 1963. The government has, however, observed that of late people coming to Nagaland much after December 1, 1963 in their zeal for quick results often ignore permanent indigenous inhabitants in the matter of running of their educational, religious and social institutions of their respective community, Dimapur deputy commissioner Maong Aier said in a notification Wednesday. Stating that this tendency was against the spirit of government notification, the DC said it was pertinent that in running and managing of such institutions the role of permanent indigenous cannot be ignored and their guidance a must at all level. Therefore, the government has urged and impressed upon all responsible to follow this suggestion rigidly for a better and harmonious functioning of their community. It has further reminded that advice and counsel of the Indigenous non-Naga inhabitants should be taken into account in all such matter.
