Mizoram Govt issues temporary ILP

The Mizoram government on Saturday resumed issuing temporary Inner Line Permits (ILPs) to people from outside the state, more than two months after it had suspended doing so due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The home department said in a notification temporary ILPs could be issued to persons to whom inter-state movement permission for entry into Mizoram has been accorded by it.

An ILP is an official travel document issued to Indian citizens for entry into protected areas. Normally, a temporary ILP is issued for 15 days.

The temporary ILP can be issued by the resident commissioner of Mizoram House in New Delhi, joint resident commissioner of Mizoram House in Kolkata, deputy resident commissioner of Mizoram Houses in Guwahati, Mumbai, Shillong and Silchar, the order said.
