Visiting the frontier state of Arunachal Pradesh just got easier with the introduction of the e-Inner Line Permit (eILP) programme here.
Chief minister Pema Khandu on Friday inaugurated the system on www.arunachalilp.com, the web portal which will allow domestic visitors to apply for and obtain the mandatory ILP online from anywhere in the country. Khandu was optimistic that the hassle-free and paperless system would lead to a significant increase in the number of visitors to the state.
The programme was conceptualized by the State Council for IT and e-Governance and developed by Bohniman Systems Pvt Ltd for the department of information technology. The chief minister congratulated the department for the "historic" initiative and emphasized the need to train personnel at the designated offices of resident commissioners, deputy resident commissioners and deputy commissioners to familiarize them with the system. He added that the verification of documents and the entire system should be error-free so that it is not misused or manipulated.
IT special secretary Prince Dhawan said that after fulfilling all criteria online, visitors will receive the ILP with unique identity number and codes via email, which can be displayed on their mobile handsets or tabs at the entry gates. Since this technology is new, Khandu said, security personnel manning the entry gates will, therefore, have to be properly trained and equipped.
Visitors have, however, been given the option to avail ILPs at entry gates and other designated places (such as Guwahati airport) physically on payment of fees, the report added.
The department is working on a similar platform for foreign visitors as well, the CM was told.
