ILP portal for DCs, labour commissioners launched in Manipur


Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh launched the Inner Line Permit (ILP) portal for deputy commissioners and labour commissioners in Imphal’s Chief Minister’s Secretariat on Friday.
After launching the portal, the chief minister said that the state will introduce a face identification system in the ILP soon. The system will make it easy in tracking ILP defaulters in the state.
The system is under construction and will be completed within the next two months, he added.
The portal was launched with new development added to the earlier ILP system, in consultation with the department of information technology, ILP cell and state home department. The portal has been upgraded considering the importance of saving the indigenous population of the state and also for the convenience of visitors from outside the state for applying ILP, he added.
Singh informed that ILPs were issued earlier manually at Mao Gate, Airport and Jiribam and then later issued through online portals.
With today’s launch, he said ILPs can now be issued online by deputy commissioners and labour commissioners.
Stating that people from outside the state can apply online for ILP through its web portal, the chief minister informed that temporary permits were given for 30 days, regular permits for three months and that of labour permits for one year.
“Now the permit can be downloaded from the portal on online payment,” he said.
As most people who come from outside the state are labourers, the deputy commissioners had also been authorized to issue permits to labours, he said.
He continued that applications for applying ILP could also be downloaded from Google Play Store.
The chief minister further said that a bar code has been put in the permit, through which the identity of the possessor can be identified by scanning.
Through this system, duplicity and fraud on ILP could be checked, he added.
Citing the instances of arrest of people staying in the state with fake IDs, the chief minister stressed on the need to know the intention of people for their stay in the state with fake IDs.
Raising concern on the seriousness of the issue, he spoke on the need to tackle the issue jointly.
Maintaining that the state government had been doing its best to check people illegally staying in Manipur, Singh sought support from the people of the state and
appealed to the public to inform the concerned authority if they found any suspicious non-local in their areas. He informed that the state police will also start house to house visits to check those residing as tenants with fake documents and also urged those who rent out their space, to inform the concerned authority if such outsiders are staying at their houses.
He warned that landlords intentionally providing space to those with fake documents would also be taken as criminals and action would be initiated against both the landlords and tenants.
Singh also appealed to people from outside, who are willing to visit the state, to take advantage of the portal to apply for ILP.
The launch was also attended by additional director general of police (ADGP) Ashutosh Kumar Sinha, commissioner T Ranjit, DIG Ningshen Worngam, deputy commissioners, SPs and other government officials among others.
