The inner line permit (ILP) regime was extended to Manipur on Wednesday, 11 December, with President Ram Nath Kovind signing the order to this effect.
The decision comes two days after Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced in Lok Sabha that the ILP would be extended to the northeastern state.
A notification in this regard was issued by the home ministry.
