Correspondent IMPHAL, JAN 2 | Publish Date: 1/2/2020 12:16:33 PM IST

Inner Line Permit (ILP) system under Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873 has been introduced in the entire state of Manipur with effect from January 1, 2010 making it the fourth north-eastern state after Nagaland, Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh to come under the ILP regime. 

The guideline of the ILP, as per the gazette notification published on December 31, 2019, categorised ILP into four as special category permit, regular permit, temporary permit and labour permit.

The ILP would be issued for a period of three years subject to renewal. The Regular Permit will be issued by all deputy commissioners in their respective districts or any other agency authorized by the state government. 

As per an official source on January 1, the first day of the introduction of ILP system a total of 330 outsiders applied for ILP for visiting the state.

Of the 330 people, 63 of them applied on their arrival at the Imphal Airport, 62 at Mao Gate bordering Nagaland, 33 at Jiribam bordering Assam and five at Moreh, Manipur town at the Indo-Myanmar border, the official added.

Meanwhile, even as the Centre had fulfilled a long pending demand for introduction of Inner Line Permit System (ILPS) to protect the indigenous people of Manipur, the guideline framed by the state government disappointed Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS).

No provision to protect the interest of the indigenous people included in the guideline, JCILPS pointed out on Thursday and demanded review of the guideline at the earliest.

It is not the ILP we expected. It is simply to issue pass to outsiders visiting the state. Nothing to protect the indigenous people included in the guideline, JCILPS convenor YK Dhiren told reporters, at a press  conference here today.
