Kohima, February 10 (NE): Ever since the Government of Nagaland notified through the home department political branch on extension of ILP in Dimapur district with immediate effect on December 9, 2019, Nagaland is very closely watching the Dimapur episode of ILP.
On the third day of the 5th Session of the 13th Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA), there was a discussion on ILP defaulters detected and action taken under BERF 1873 in Dimapur, today, February 10, 2020.
Deputy Chief Minister Y Patton answering to the starred questioned raised by Dr. Chotisuh Sazo MLA on the ILP defaulters detected and action taken under BERF 1873 in Dimapur said that a total of 28 ILP defaulters were detected and 6 defaulters were registered and forwarded to the court for further necessary actions.
Among the defaulters detected, the 8 defaulters without any documents were fined Rs. 500 each and deported to Assam and further, 14 defaulters were fined Rs. 500 each and ILP were issued to them, said the Deputy CM in the NLA.
