Manipur government will resume the implementation of Inner Line Permit System (ILP) with effect from July 21 at all the designated and police stations.

The ILP came into effect in Manipur from January 1, 2020, making it the fourth north-eastern state after Nagaland, Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh, to come under the ILP regime.

However, the state government suspended the issue of the permit with effect from March 18 as part of precautionary measures to check the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

A notification of the state home department said that the resumption of the issue of the permit was due to demand of the CSOs to deport non-Manipuris, particularly migrant workers who entered into the state during the suspension period.

While pressing the state government to deport them, the Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) alleged that as many as 23 migrant workers have entered the state recently.

The body also demanded booking of all persons involved in flouting norms to bring in the migrant workers into the state.

The resumption of issue of the permit was also amid rising cases of the pandemic in the state despite the lockdown to check spread of the disease.

With 14 new cases detected in the last 24 hours, the tally of COVID-19 infections in Manipur rose to 1952 on Monday, according to a report of the state health department.

Of the total cases, 605 were active cases and the recovery tally rose to 1320 after 85 persons were discharged on Monday.

The recovery rate stood at 68.57 percent, the report said and added that the recovery rate in Noney, Pherzawl and Tengnoupal have reached 100 per cent. Of the 14 new cases detected in the last 24 hours, nine were males and five females.
