WHAT CHANGES AFTER ABROGATION OF ARTICLE 370

Earlier there was a special status that was accorded to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370. But now the following changes would be made:

  •  Jammu and Kashmir will no longer have a separate constitution, flag or anthem. The citizens of Jammu and Kashmir will not have dual citizenship-they will be citizens of India alone.
  •  Since, Jammu and Kashmir will not be a state, the J&K cadre for Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) will have to be scrapped. Instead, this civil services cadre will be part of the AGMUT cadre. AUGMUT is the abbreviation of Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram, and Union Territories and represents their collective cadre.
  •  As the new union territory of Jammu and Kashmir will be subject to the Indian Constitution, its citizens will now have the Fundamental Rights enshrined in that document-until now, this was not the case. Article 360, which can be used to declare a Financial Emergency, will now also be applicable.
  • All laws passed by Parliament will be applicable in Jammu and Kashmir, including the Right to Information Act and the Right to Education Act.
  • The Indian Penal Code will replace the Ranbir Penal Code of Jammu and Kashmir.
  • As the government has modified the Article 370, diluting special status to Jammu and Kashmir, Article 35 (A), which originates from the provisions of Article 370 stands null and void. Any Indian citizen from any part of the country can now buy property in Jammu and Kashmir, take a state government job and enjoy scholarships and other government benefits. Children of a woman marrying outside Jammu and Kashmir will not lose property rights.
  • Earlier there was a special status that was accorded to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 37. Instead of 29 states and seven union territories, these books will now have to show 28 states and nine UTs.
  • The red-colored flag with three stripes so far used to reflect the three regions of the state – Kashmir valley, Jammu and Ladakh. The plough in the flag is representative of farmers of the state. The flag has been representing the special identity of the state. In 1952, the state constituent assembly had made the flag its official flag.
