There are 21,757 valid Inner Line Permit (ILP) holding non-tribals in Mizoram which included 135 people having two-year ILP validity and registered under GST.
Mizoram home minister Lalchamliana on Monday informed this in the state Assembly.
Replying to a question raised by Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) legislator Lalduhoma , the minister said that 1,893 people were arrested in the state during January to May this year for not having valid ILP and deported.
“As of now, the state government does not have any knowledge of any people from outside the state residing in the state without possessing ILP,” Lalchamliana said.
He further said that efforts were being made to fully computerise registration of the ILP system.
Temporary ILP centres at Mizoram border Vairengte and Bairabi towns were already using computers for registration of temporary ILPs at their respective centres while the deputy commissioners’ offices where official permits were made would also be computerised soon, he said.
