Domicile rules implemented in Jammu and Kashmir

Pakistan, PDP and National Conference oppose

People from other States living in Kashmir for 15 years will be granted  citizenship as per the Domicile rules. That is why the political parties of Pakistan and Kashmir are against its implementation. It is clear that they cannot bear Hindus coming to Kashmir.

Srinagar (J & K) – New Domicile rule is implemented in Jammu and Kashmir. According to the new rule, any person who has been living in J & K from the past 15 years, and those who have completed their 10th  and 12th standard examinations from the local institutions will be considered as the citizens of J&K. Fifteen days have been given for issuing a Domicile Certificate in place of Permanent Resident Certificate (PRC). According to this rule, refugees from West Pakistan, Valmikis and children of women married in other States will get Domicile Certificates. Political parties of Kashmir, such as PDP and National conference are against this and are demanding a rollback.

Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry has said, ”The Domicile rule implemented in Kashmir by India is completely illegal. India has violated the agreement of the United Nations Security Council between the two nations”.
