Govt set to issue orders for JK’s domicile rights this month
New law to provide reservation for the permanent residents in Land and Jobs
1/18/2020 11:35:27 PM

Jammu, Jan 18: Chances are high that the government may issue orders pertaining to protection of land and jobs for the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir with the process as per insiders entering into a final phase.
Reports inform that the Jammu and Kashmir government may this week or probably by the end of this month issue orders that could provide guarantee of land and jobs for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Jammu and Kashmir’s Lt Governor Girish Chandra Murmu on January 17 stated that the protection of land and jobs for the locals would be ensured keeping in view the interest of the Union Territory.
Meanwhile, as per the reports, the government is all set to issue the orders pertaining to domicile rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and that the government is examining whether the government of India needs to notify it or if it can be done by the Union Territory itself.
The Government of India on August 5, last year scrapped Article 370 and Article 35-A in Jammu and Kashmir- both of these constitutional provisions used confer certain rights and privileges to the people of Jammu and Kashmir people in terms of purchase of land and jobs.
However, after more than five months of clampdown and its efforts to bring back normalcy, the government foresees the official orders for protection of land and jobs as an important measure that has the capability to restore peace and peoples’ confidence.
Reports inform that the authorities are seriously examining a proposal to grant domicile status to those who have been living in the erstwhile state for a specific number of years.
It was informed further that the provision will protect the rights of locals the way they were safeguarded before abrogation of special status of J&K. Since August 5, when the government scrapped J&K’s special status and bifurcated it, there have been concerns over government jobs and land rights being grabbed by outsiders.
Even the team of former Jammu and Kashmir legislators led by former Minister Altaf Bukhari met Lt Governor, seeking protection of land and jobs for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. “This most important issue can be addressed by tangible legal and constitutional safeguards that can be put in place by virtue of which protection of Domicile Rights including that of reservation for the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir in the matter of employment and that of admissions to professional courses is ensured. A blend of models like Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, and parts of Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh can provide solution for protection of these rights of the Peoples of Jammu and Kashmir,” the delegation mentioned in a memorandum it presented before the Lt Governor.
Speculations are rife that now when the orders pertaining to domicile rights is in the offing , the government has began issuing orders for internet restoration in various parts of the erstwhile state. Even the prepaid mobile service was restored in Kashmir on January 18 in Kashmir valley, giving rise to the chances that those at the helm are taking very important confidence building measure.
