Dimapur, July 25: Noklak Deputy Commissioner, Arikumba issued a circular in response to reports of some Village Councils/Ward Authorities issuing or enforcing Inner Line Permit (ILP) without the mandate or knowledge of the state Government, deeming such actions as illegal.
The circular emphasized that the enforcement and regulation of the ILP is an exclusive matter under the jurisdiction of the District Administration, as enshrined in the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873.
In light of this, the Deputy Commissioner has directed all Village Councils and Ward Authorities to refrain from engaging in any activities related to the issuance of ILPs or any other related matters.
The subject of ILPs, he stated, solely falls under the purview of the District Administration. The circular urged strict compliance with this directive.
