SC dismisses PIL challenging law which allows Inner Line Permit

FILE PIC: PTI


The Supreme Court today dismissed a PIL challenging a law that empowers states like Nagaland to make Inner Line Permit mandatory for the entry of people from outside the state.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose stated it was not inclined to entertain the matter.

 BJP member Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay petitioned the court, contending that the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation of 1873, which gave the power to prescribe ILP for Indian citizens was arbitrary and unreasonable. He said it also offends Article 14, 15, 19 and 21 of the Constitution.

The petitioner later sought to withdraw his plea and make a representation before a competent ministry for his grievance's redressal, but the court refused to allow it.
