Inner Line Permit (ILP)

Recently, the Ladakh administration has done away with the requirement of Inner Line Permit (ILP) for all Indian nationals traveling to its protected areas.

This step has been taken to promote rural tourism and underline the sovereignty of India.

However, foreigners wishing to visit these protected areas will still need a protected area permit. Its validity has now been increased from 7 days to 15 days.

About Inner Line Permit (ILP)

  • ILP is an official travel document issued by a state. This type of permit allows Indian citizens to travel for a certain period of time in a protected area inside the country.
  • This system is presently in force in four North Eastern states namely Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram.
  • It is used to protect indigenous communities of the Northeast region in India and to regulate and monitor movement in certain areas near India’s international border.
  • The concept originated with the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation 2 Act, 1873. Under this, the British had made rules to restrict entry into specified areas and control the stay of outsiders.
  • The purpose of this act was to protect the Crown’s own commercial interests by prohibiting “British Subjects” (Indians) from doing business in these areas.
