Lotha Students Union (LSU) has urged the state government to promptly initiate reforms in the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system, saying the existing system was currently being “carelessly” enforced with numerous loopholes that allowed illegal immigrants to take advantage of the “deficient system” and enter the state illegally.
A delegation of LSU on July 19, called on the state chief minister, Neiphiu Rio, and submitted a representation, in which the union urged the government to bring reforms in the existing ILP system with a vision to effectively regulate and monitor the influx of immigrants into Nagaland.
Besides this  LSU also suggested that the ILP regulation guidelines be standardized; enforce stricter procedures to detect suspected illegal immigrants; improve ease of ILP application and renewal for tourists and investors; streamline the ILP revenue collection process and maintain proper and accurate records through a secure online database system. Further, LSU also placed some policy recommendations for the government to consider. Among others, LSU recommended enacting fresh ILP guidelines for Nagaland, similar to guidelines for the enforcement of the Inner Line Regulation in Mizoram (2006). It also suggested improving the new ILP system with the latest open source technology to empower the administration and police to effectively regulate and monitor all immigration activity in the State and integrate it with Crime & Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) to enable the administration and police to check criminal record history of ILP applicants and guarantors.
The union also recommended a separate ILP/Immigration cell within the home department to effectively regulate and monitor all ILP related issues in the state.
Meanwhile, the LSU delegation discussed at length with the chief minister the need for creating mass awareness, skill and capacity building measures for youth, in the presence of deputy chief minister Y Patton, advisor Mmhonlumo Kikon, MLA and Advisor CM, Viketol Sakhrie.
