DIMAPUR, MAY 11 (NPN) | Publish Date: 5/11/2019 11:50:12 AM IST

Joint Committee on Prevention of Illegal Immigrants (JCPI) has invited all 16 tribe hohos, mass-based organizations, and CSO leaders to a meeting called by the committee on May 18, 2019 at Tourist Lodge hotel, Dimapur at 11 am. 

In a press note, JCPI convenor, K Ghokheto Chophy, and secretary, Tia Longchar, said the meeting has been being convened for further discussion on ILP/BEFR and CAB. They recalled that JCPI was formed by tribe hohos, CSOs and mass-based organizations on August 8, 2018. 

The committee stated that it carried out the job diligently as mandated by the tribe leaders and responsible organizations for the past almost one year. 

However, JCPI stated that in the intervening period many issues, some contentious, have arisen for which renewed discussion was necessary. Besides, the committee said it would present its progress report to the gathering of leaders. 

In this regard, the committee has requested that the presidents and the general secretaries of the organizations make it convenient to attend in person. 

It may be mentioned that the JPCI has been vocal in its demand urging the government to extend BEFR 1873 to the entire state and especially Dimapur district. 

It said so long as Dimapur was out of the purview of Inner Line Permit (ILP), it will continue to remain as feeder district of illegal immigrants to interior areas.

JCPI had insisted that ILP should differentiate between tourist, transit passenger and manual or skilled labour. The ILP should also be for limited period and those ILP holders should be allowed to do business in the state.

JPCI had also asked the government to create a separate cell or a separate department under home department to competently deal with strict enforcement of BEFRA and Foreigners Act 1946 on a daily basis.

JCPI also insisted that ILP should differentiate between tourist, transit passenger and manual or skilled labour. The ILP should also be for limited period and those ILP holders should be allowed to do business in the state.
