Arunachal To Simplify ILP Procedure

Guwahati, Jan 19 : With a view to raising tourist inflow and making the State more tourist-friendly, the Arunachal Pradesh Government is working to simplify the procedure for application and issuance of the Inner Line Permit.

“The ILP has so far not been relaxed. However, the effort of the Government of Arunachal is that it is going to simplify the procedure and lot of Information Technology (IT) intervention is taking place,” Arunachal Pradesh Tourism Secretary Sonam Chombay told reporters here on Friday.

He added, “Within a very short time, online ILP facility would be in place. That will solve a lot of problems of the domestic tourists.”

The ILP is an official travel document issued to Indian citizens who want to visit “protected/restricted areas or States” such as Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Mizoram.

It is obligatory for Indian citizens from outside these States to obtain a permit before entering the protected State.
