Inner Line Permit UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • According to the provisions of the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873, people from other States need to possess Inner Line Permit to enter and stay in Mizoram. 

  • People arrested in Mizoram for not having ILP.

What is Inner Line Permit?

  • An Inner Line Permit (ILP) is an official travel document issued by the state government of specific Indian states

  • It serves as a permit for Indian citizens to enter and travel within those states for a limited period.

Here's a breakdown of the ILP system:

  • Purpose: Regulate movement in certain areas near the international borders, aiming to protect the indigenous communities and their cultural heritage.

  • States Requiring ILP: Currently, four northeastern states in India mandate an ILP:

    1. Arunachal Pradesh

    2. Mizoram

    3. Nagaland

    4. Manipur (since December 2020)


  • Indian citizens from outside these states need to acquire an ILP to enter.

  • Foreign citizens require a separate permit called the Protected Area Permit (PAP) to enter these regions.

Obtaining an ILP:

  • The process typically involves applying online or in person at designated offices.

  • The ILP is valid for a specific period, with provisions for extension in some cases.

Key Points:

  • While the ILP might seem to restrict movement, it's crucial for preserving the unique tribal identity and safeguarding the interests of the indigenous communities residing in these sensitive border areas.

  • It's important to note that compared to the PAP for foreign citizens, acquiring an ILP is generally a simpler process.
