Imphal, Aug 22:

Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) today demanded an effective Inner Line Permit System in the state besides the implementation of the NRC in par with the Government of Assam. A memorandum in the connection has also been submitted to the Chief Minister of Manipur for a speedy permit system in the state.
The memorandum urged the government of Manipur to regulate the ILPS in effective ways.
Convenor of the JCILPS, YK Dhiren while speaking to media persons at its office complex today said that even as the Inner Line Permit System has been introduced in the state on December 31, 2019, the content of the permit system lacks certain provisions that the JCILPS along with the people of the state.
People of the state have been demanding the permit system under the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873, it is now 1 year and 8 months and the demands for the permit system as a desire by the people has not been fully enacted. The guidelines under the regulations are just namesake and the regulation cannot be effectively implemented in the state. It is at this juncture that the people felt the need for another mass movement so that the government acted on the desire of the people by effectively implementing the Inner line permit system.
YK Dhiren said that the JCILPS had submitted a memorandum containing 9 points to the government. We submit the memorandum with full faith that the government of Manipur will regulate the ILPS on par with the 9 points demands, Dhiren added.
The 9 points demands submitted to the government of Manipur are-
1. Under Sec 3 and 8 (1) of the said MILPG, the terms ‘Indigenous Person’ and ‘Permanent Resident of the State of Manipur’ should be defined clearly/distinctly. Indigenous Peoples/Persons of Manipur means those peoples who have been resid-ing since time immemorial with a historical and special inalienable relationship with the land, resources and territory of Manipur with distinct cultures and traditions experiencing historically and rooted continued subjugation, domination and threats to their survival, livelihood and identity.
In the meantime, any other person/s who are citizen/s of India who have been permanently residing and settling in the State of Manipur since before1st January 1951 and/or their descendent/s whose names are found/enlisted in the National Register of Citizens of India, 1951 or in the Census of the year 1951 or else any relevant document/s like Provisional Electoral Roll of Manipur, 1950-51, shall be considered as the permanent residents of Manipur but not as Indigenous Peoples of Manipur.
2.The Cut-Off base year for identifying non-indigenous People/Outsiders/Non Manipuris should be 1st January 1951. The reason hereby is that on 18th November 1950, the then Chief Commissioner Manipur, Hemat Singh abolished the former Pass 3nd Permit System thereby allowing the non-indigenous persons to enter the State of Manipur. It laid the foundation for present-day demographic imbalances and marginalization of Indigenous peoples of Manipur. The population of Manipur has increased 4.6 times in the year 2011 as compared to the population of the year 1951 and the migrant population in Manipur has increased more than 400 times since the year 1948. The records maintained as Books he used as references are (a) The Census Report, 1951, (b) The Electoral Roll of the year 1948, (c) The Village Directory. 1951 and (d) The National Register of Citizens, 1951 etc
3. The Population Commission should be established in Manipur so that the actual indigenous population and non-indigenous population should be figured out distinctly as per the agreed terms and conditions reached/put up in the agreement during the meeting held between the Government of Manipur and JCILPS in the past. And later, the State Cabinet has also passed the resolution for the formation of the said Commission.
4. The Database of those persons concerning their Inner Line Permit system should be strictly maintained and updated. It shall be the duty of all the Deputy Com-missioners of each district to strictly maintain an online monthly database of the particulars for every non-Manipuns, who have entered and exited the Manipur State and also to renew their passes. Maintenance of online database is necessary to ins, transparency, accountability and accessibility to the public,
5, Penalty for violating the MILPG, 2019, under Sec 20, should be effectively implemented.
6. It shall not be lawful for any person not being a Manipur People or any Central Agencies/Corporations/Authorities/MultiNational Company for any beneficial scheme/ projects to acquire any interest, right or title inland within the Territory of Manipur without the sanction of the State Government of Manipur. 7 National Register of Citizens (NRC) should be established/updated by starting/ constructing all the necessary formalities for the establishment of the same in the state of Manipur by the State Government 8. Under Section 12 (e) of Mil PG-2019 concerning Labour Inner Lino Permit, the term Bulk Permit is very controversial The required labourers should he provided that with the prior approval of the Government, the number of such Labourers does not exceed 50 (fifty) In the Sub-Section (g) of Sec 12 of the said MILPG-2019, the concerned authority not only take the responsibility of the labourers having no valid permits but also to take the responsibility of any crime/s committed by them In addition to this, Inter-State Migrant Workmen (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service)Act, 1979 should be implemented effectively in the State of Manipur. 9. Manipur Land Reform Commission which was already agreed between the state government and JCILPS should be established to start its functioning. Accordingly, I hope your good self be pleased to consider and pay heed into the aforesaid demands in the interest of indigenous peoples of Manipur.
