ET’s March 21 report vindicated

EARLY TIMES REPORT

JAMMU, Apr 1: The news report titled ‘JK may get Domicile Law by March end’ published in Early Times on March 21 edition got vindicated on Wednesday when the government of India issued an order pertaining to the domicile rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The news report had revealed that the domicile law will ensure protection jobs for the permanent residents of the former state and that the central government has finalized the preparations for the announcement.
Seven months after the abrogation of J&K’s special status, the Government of India has notified a law under which jobs up to the lowest level of non-gazetted rank have been reserved for J&K domiciles.
“Jobs up to the lowest level of non-gazetted rank have been exclusively reserved for those who have resided for a period of 15 years in J&K and children of all central government employees who have served for 10-year period in the UT,” reads and order.
“Subject to the provisions of this Act, no person shall be eligible for appointment to a post carrying a pay scale of not more than Level-4 (25500) unless he is a domicile of the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir,” reads section 5A of The Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services (Decentralization and Recruitment) Act.
Moreover all Indian citizens including J&K domiciles would be eligible for remaining non-gazetted and gazetted posts which before scrapping of article were only for residents of J&K.
The domiciles have been defined as those who have resided for a period of 15 years in the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir or have studied for a period of seven years and appeared in Class 10th /12th examination in an educational institution located in J&K.
The domiciles also includes children of those central government officials, All India services officers, officials of public sector undertaking and autonomous body of central government.
The law has empowered Tehsildars within their territorial jurisdiction to issue domicile certificates besides that any other competent authority can be appointed tk issue same as well by authorities. Since August 5, last year, 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 Prime Minister Modi last week and sought seeking protection of land and jobs for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The new party termed it as the “most important issue” that 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.
