- Do we have to take the DC permission as well as the army permission for going to border areas? If we have contacts in the army, would the army permission be enough?
The permission from DC office will be enough for visiting Bumla. Frankly I have no idea about the army permissions. Usually army permits are enough
in the border areas, but please do not take my word for it.
- Are the permits multiple entry or single entry only?
Permits to Bumla are for a single day with the date mentioned. If you cannot make it on that date for some reason, a fresh permit has to be taken.
- do the photographs of all travelling need to be taken or only the person in whose name the permit is issued?
Photographs of all the people traveling are needed.
- do the names of all travellers have to be mentioned in the permit or say XYZ+3?
The names of all the travellers have to be given
- which are the other special entry areas?
I know about Bumla only. If permit is needed to go beyond Zemithang, I am not aware of it.
- any idea about the permit issues for Mizoram and Nagaland?
No idea sir :-(
