India is a diversified country with diverse resources, cultures, and identities. However, entry into many Indian states for economic or domestic purposes is now restricted without a legitimate government permit. Inner line permits are the name for this type of permit (ILP). ILP was primarily requested by the northeast state region in order to safeguard their cultural identity and manage the population of their tribes and races within their own state by prohibiting others from entering. It has already been implemented in some north-eastern states (Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, and Nagaland), although some north-eastern states have demanded that the ILP system be introduced in their states. As a result, the state of Manipur petitioned the federal government to establish the ILP system in the state. Most restricted/protected places require ILPs for Indian people, whether they are residents or non-residents. However, for acquiring an ILP, the requirements of having a minimum number of travellers and restricting the duration of travel to specified restricted/protected areas are either absent or greatly reduced, but central personnel are not prohibited in those states. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the major issues of ILP in the north-east state of Assam.
