Kohima: Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Thursday launched
the online Inner Line Permit (ILP) module portal on 16th December 2021 at the Chief Minister’s Residential Complex in Kohima and said the new module will cover other categories such as businessmen, traders, labourers, priests, students and expand online services.
In his remark, Rio stated that it is part of the Government’s effort
for making public services available in a more efficient and
user-friendly manner. He said that ILP is a tool to protect the
indigenous people of Nagaland and is enforced under the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873 and was also agreed as part of the 16-point agreement that led to the formation of the State.
Similar provisions are also available in Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram and Manipur. He added that with strict timelines and monitoring, it should be possible to see that the approval process is not abused and the ILP applicants are also happy.
Rio said online ILP would enable authorities to capture all data of
visitors to the State, analyse it and help in planning better for
various facilities. He advocated more government services online so
that the public can avail services through their computers, mobile
devices or through Computer Service Centers. He also stated that
websites should not be only tools for providing information but should
provide services online within a short time limit.
Meanwhile, the Nagaland Home Department stated that in the exercise of the powers conferred by Section 4 of the Bengal Eastern Frontier
Regulation, 1873, and in continuation of its official notification of
even number dated 08.11.2019, the provision for online application and issue of ILP has been extended with immediate effect to the
