When the Constitution of India came into force on January 26, 1950, special provisions were made for the state of J&K in the form of Article 370 of the Constitution of India, which was actually a temporary provision.
In fact, the Article 35-A was also a provision incorporated in the Constitution of India giving the Jammu & Kashmir legislature a carte blanche to decide who all were “permanent residents ” of the state and confer on them special rights and privileges in public sector jobs, acquisition of property in the state, educational scholarships and other public aid and welfare.
The provision mandated that no act of the legislature coming under it could be challenged for violating the Constitution or any other law of the land. Article 35-A was an article that was used to empower the J&K state’s Legislature to define “permanent residents ” of the state and provide special rights and privileges to those permanent residents. It was added to the Constitution of India through a presidential order i.e. the constitution (Application to Jammu & Kashmir) order, 1954 issued by the president of India on May 14, 1954, “in exercise of the power conferred by ” clause (1) of Article 370 of the Constitution of India, with the concurrence of the government of the state of Jammu & Kashmir. This special status granted to the state of Jammu & Kashmir was believed to be the prime inhibiting factor in the complete integration of the state with the union.
After Abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35-A, rights of the people of Jammu-Kashmir and Leh-Kargil regarding trade, agriculture, employment, culture, land and property have been provided absolute Constitutional protection and safe-guard. Here are a few glaring examples as follows:
