Chuni writes to PM seeks Domicile for PoJK families settled outside J&K

Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 5: Expressing serious concern over no provision of Domicile for the Pak occupied Jammu & Kashmir families residing in various parts of India, other than J&K, the S. O. S. International - An Organization for PoJK Displaced Persons chairman Rajiv Chunni has sought immediate intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for necessary rectification in Union Home Ministry’s order in this regard.
Chuni has written a letter to the Prime Minister of India for extending the benefit of Domicile to these PoJK Displaced persons on the lines of Kashmiri migrants, who are residing outside J&K for the last more than 15 years. In his letter to PM, copies of which were also sent to Home Minister, Law & Justice Minister, LG JKUT, Chief Secretary JKUT, Chuni has explained that the Domicile provisions, according to which the persons already having State Subject or those living in Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory for more than 15 years are deemed to be the Domicile of J&K, has stripped around 3 lakh Displaced persons of their birthright for being Permanent Resident of J&K.
“Because of the condition of either having State Subject or residing in J&K for 15 years, around 15000 PoJK Displaces families, whose number has now increased to about 50 thousands with more than 2, 50,000 souls settled in various parts of India other than Jammu and Kashmir, have suddenly become outsiders notwithstanding they are being natives of J&K even before 1947,” he said.
Chuni further elaborated that these families, mostly Hindus and Sikhs, are neither settled in J&K since decades nor they have State Subject documents as they never felt need of the same and hence under the new Act, they are not eligible for the Domicile certificate despite being original inhabitants of J&K.
Informing that these families of Displaced Persons have valid documents of their being permanent residents of erstwhile J&K and they are very much registered with the Provincial Rehabilitation Office of the J&K Government, Chuni has demanded that the benefit of Domicile should be extended to these families on the pattern of Kashmiri migrants, who are also staying outside J&K for the more than 15 years.
“Through this letter, we appeal yourself to immediately issue directions for necessary modification in the recently issued Government Gazette in this regard so that these families of PoJK Displaced Persons are legally considered as Permanent Residents of J&K and become eligible for the Domicile Certificate,” he urged the Prime Minister and reminded that the community has had always supported the initiatives of Government of India for complete integration of J&K with the Indian Union and taking back the occupied territory, from where they were forced to migrate under compelling situation in 1947 following Pakistan backed tribal attack, in which thousands of their people were mercilessly killed.
