Uttarakhand government might lift the `Inner Line Permit` in some areas of the hill state adjoining the border areas with an aim to develop areas for `border tourism`.

State tourism minister Satpal Maharaj has spoken to his counterpart at the Center to speed up the procedure.

"I have spoken to the Union tourism minister and officials concerned for this (border tourism) and soon things will materialize. Along with border tourism, there will be tribal tourism and winter tourism. Initially, we have plans to open up Mukhba, Bagholi, and Harsil in the Gangotri by lifting the Inner Line Permit," said Maharaj.

The Inner Line Permit (ILP) is required to visit some areas of the state which are ecologically and otherwise deemed sensitive.
