After the joint committee on prevention of illegal immigrants (JCPI) submitted a representation to the chief secretary, the state government has formed a committee headed by commissioner and secretary to the chief minister, Abhishek Singh.

JCPI through its media cell informed that on August 18, 2018 when it submitted a representation to the chief secretary and a meeting was held, whereupon a committee was immediately formed during the discussion. The meeting was also attended by home commissioner, special secretary home, and the director general of police along with additional DGP.

JCPI expressed hope that the committee headed by a senior bureaucrat would fully satisfy the demand of the Naga public.

According to JCPI, the newly formed committee has been asked to submit an interim report within 15 days on comprehensive action plan and mechanisms to streamline ILP, to effectively curb illegal immigrants and to bring out a strong policy to safeguard the rights and security of indigenous inhabitants Nagaland as a consequence of the ongoing NRC drive in Assam.

JCPI said it has strongly urged the formation of ILP monitoring cell and Foreigners Tribunal to deal with the influx. At the meeting, JCPI members also requested the committee to visit RTAs and the Municipal Councils/town committees in the districts with regard to random issuance of driving licenses and trade licenses to suspected illegal immigrants. 

JCPI suggested that as an experimental measure, the issuance of ILP in Dimapur should be handled by the police Commissionerate Office rather than the office of the DC. JCPI also raised the issue of non-indigenous people serving as GBs, particularly suspected illegal immigrants in Dimapur area.

Earlier, JCPI had urged the state government to create a separate cell or a separate department under home department to competently deal with strict enforcement of BEFR Act of 1873 and Foreigners Act 1946 on a daily basis.
