NRC – Nagaland tightens border against illegal immigrants from Assam

The final draft of National Register of Citizens (NRC) for Assam excluded 1.9 million people and following it the Nagaland government issued an advisory in the state as a preventive measure against possible influx of illegal immigrants.

The advisory read, “All entry points/check gates manned by the police should be suitably strengthened to prevent any possible influx of illegal immigrants and mobile patrolling in vulnerable should be activated.”

Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh and Mizoram are the three northeastern states where people coming from other parts of the country need to obtain inner line permit (ILP). However, commercial hub Dimapur does not come under the purview.

The advisory instructed local authorities to monitor influx of people from other states who have entered Nagaland without valid documents issued by the district administration.

Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma informed the assembly that authorities have been directed to prevent people entering the state through Assam border without sufficient documentary proof.

He added, “Adequate manpower has been deployed at check posts at key entry points bordering Assam, additional check points have been set up and are being manned round the clock.”
