Manipur launches e-ILP counters for outside visitors

Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh had on Thursday launched electronic-Inner Line Permit (ILP) counters from the state capital Imphal.

Besides Imphal, two more counters, Jiribam and Mao, have also been inaugurated from Chief Minister’s Secretariat.

Under the portal, a person from outside the State can apply online for Inner Line Permit by logging in to and get the permit from issuing centres at Imphal Airport, Mao Gate, Jiribam Railway Station and Jiribam ILP Exit Counter after proper onsite verification. The online portal is developed by Cubeten Technologies Pvt. Ltd.

Singh said that the Inner Line Permit System was enforced in the State, considering its less population, to protect the identity of its people.

“The e-ILP tracking system had been developed to mend the loopholes in the procedures adopted to issue the permit and its tracking system,” Singh said.

He added that the system would help in checking whether a person, who had entered the State with permit, had left or was still staying even after the expiration of permit duration.

Singh further stated that concerned authorities, at many instances, had found visitors staying beyond their permit duration without renewing it.
“The new system would enable mobile tracking of defaulters and taking necessary action. The Inner Line Permit Monitoring Cell with DIG (Intelligence) as Chairman had been set up to ensure proper reading of entry and exit and to track over stay, Singh said.

According to government, e-ILP platform has a comprehensive dashboard system that would actively show varied information such as number of people entering the state on a particular date and time, graphical break up based presentation of people visiting through different entry gates.

“The system is also enabled with automated generation of a defaulted list of people who have overstayed beyond the permitted number of days as per the permit,” mentioned a government media release.
