Meghalaya | KHADC pushes for ILP in the state

TNT News | SHILLONG, September 26, 2018

The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) has made a decision to move a resolution seeking the implementation of inner line permit (ILP) in the state.

KHADC CEM HS Shylla stated that the executive committee will hold a special session to move the resolution asking the governor to notify the implementation of the Bengal Eastern Frontier (Regulation), 1873.

Speaking to reporters, Shylla said, "The main demand of the HYC was the inner line permit (ILP). The file was kept aside and the previous CEM did not do anything about it."

"The Acts notified have been kept under the jurisdiction of the KHADC which was then the United Khasi and Jaintia Hills. The Bengal Eastern Frontier (Regulation), 1873 is one among the Acts," Shylla said.

"Since it falls within the purview of the notified act of the KHADC, the EC has decided to pass a resolution in the House for which a special session will be called to urge the governor to notify implementation of Bengal Eastern Frontier (Regulation), 1873. Once it is implemented, the ILP will also get implemented," he added.
