Dimapur: Assam Ngo Demands Withdrawal Of Ilp From Nagaland’s Dimapur Dist | Guwahati News – Times of India

Silchar: Voices of discontent were raised in Assam over the extension of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system by the Nagaland government to the entire Dimapur district.
Citizens’ Rights Preservation Committee (CRPC) Assam, an NGO, expressed its deep anguish and agony over the notification issued by deputy commissioner (Dimapur) Sachin Jaiswal on April 19 to extend the ILP to Dimapur district, the business hub of the state.
So far, Dimapur was the only place in Nagaland that was not under the ILP system.
“Dimapur is the commercial hub and has a mixed population, often referred to as ‘mini India’. People speaking Bengali, Bihari, Marwari, Punjabi and other languages have been living in Dimapur for decades. With the ILP system being implemented after the notification issued by the Dimapur DC on April 19, the 1.5 lakh non-tribal people living in Dimapur have been left with an uncertain future,” said CRPC general secretary Sadhan Purkayastha.
“We demand the immediate withdrawal of the ILP system not only from Dimapur but also from Manipur, a northeastern state that has also been recently brought under the purview of it,” said the CRPC functionaries.
The decision of the Nagaland government makes it mandatory for “every non-indigenous person” who entered Dimapur district after November 21, 1979, to obtain an ILP within 90 days.
