The Inner Line Permit (ILP) system
The Inner Line Permit system is a permit that regulates travel to certain areas of India, including Sikkim, Nagaland, and Manipur. The Sikkim government has recently announced that its ILP committee will meet officials from Nagaland and Manipur to discuss the implementation of the permit system in their states.
The Inner Line Permit system was first introduced by the British in the 19th century to regulate entry into certain areas of India. It requires visitors to obtain a permit before entering designated areas. The system was initially introduced to protect tribal communities and their culture, and it is still in use today in some parts of the country.
In recent years, there has been a growing demand for the implementation of the ILP system in other states, including Nagaland and Manipur. The Sikkim government has been actively promoting the system and has now decided to hold discussions with officials from these states to explore the possibility of implementing the ILP system.
ILP committee Discussions
The ILP committee from Sikkim will meet officials from Nagaland and Manipur to discuss the implementation of the permit system. The meeting is expected to address issues such as the process of obtaining permits, the duration of the permits, and the areas to which the permit system will apply.
The Sikkim government has stated that it is committed to working with other states to implement the ILP system and to protect the culture and identity of tribal communities in the region.
