Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) has appealed to the state government to make known to the indigenous people of the state the draft copy of Registration of Indigenous Inhabitant of Nagaland (RIIN) before it becomes an Act. In a representation to the state chief minister, the NTC president Toniho Yepthomi and general secretary Nribemo Ngullie also affirmed that there should not be any alternation of cut-off year and date other than Dec 1, 1963 for effective date of both BEFR Act 1873/ILP and RIIN for ascertaining Indigenous Inhabitant of Nagaland throughout the territorial jurisdiction of the State.

Pointing out that Nagaland became a state out of 16 Point Agreement with effect from Dec 1, 1963, the NTC stated that for the purpose of identifying Indigenous Inhabitant of Nagaland, there was already laid down cut-off year maintaining Dec 1, 1963 vide State government Notification dated Kohima April 28, 1977. 

Stating that BEFR Act 1873/ILP and RIIN were synonymous, NTC has, therefore, asserted that there cannot be a different date and time of its implementation.
