Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Wednesday said the inner line permit (ILP) system will be fully implemented in the state by January 1.

“After publishing an official state gazette on the issue, the ILP will be implemented in the state by January 1,” he said in the Assembly.

He was responding to a Calling Attention Motion jointly moved by opposition MLAs Kh Joykishan and RK Imo concerning the influx of migrants.

“Extension of ILP in Manipur is the result of constant efforts of the people of the state,” Singh said.

“We should appreciate the central leaders for extending the ILP in the state,” he added.

“We are working on the rules and regulations of the ILP and this will be completed soon,” he further said.

“We will soon categorise the types of permits that are to be issued. Categories will be like Investors, tourists, students, government officials, etc,” he added.

He further infomred that the Manipur government has already selected seven-eight entry points.

“We have selected 78 entry points and these include Singjol, Moreh, Mao, Jiribam, Jessami, Beihang, Bir Tikendrajit International Airport among others,” Singh said.

“We have also started setting up police stations in some locations which have remained unguarded so far,” the CM added.

When asked about the base year for specifying indigenous people, N Biren said, “It will be done while exercising the nationwide NRC drive.”

“We will begin the NRC process once the Centre gives the green signal,” he added.
