GoI likely to modify 30 state laws retained in JK Re-Organisation Act

Srinagar: The Government of India (GoI) is likely to make modifications in almost thirty state laws to facilitate their application to Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory, reported a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer.

Highly placed sources told KNO that the GoI would soon come up with modifications in nearly 30 laws that were retained under the J-K Re-Organisation Act.

“These modifications have become necessary to ensure administrative effectiveness and remove ambiguity in implementation of these laws due to conversion of J-K into a Union Territory,” they said, adding that Ministry of Home Affairs has already made adaptations and modifications, either by way of repeal or amendment, in 138 state laws.
