After the implementation of the Reorganization Act in the state, the occupation of the properties of Kashmiri Pandits has started being removed. Due to this, the path of his return home has started looking easy. Along with buying agricultural land to Mahajans, Khatris and Sikhs, women have also started getting the right to property rights.
A lot has changed in Jammu and Kashmir within two years of the Reorganization Act coming into force on 31 October 2019 after the abrogation of Article 370. There have been many changes in the system on the ground. The gates of Jammu and Kashmir were opened for all. Along with transparency in administration, corruption was also curbed. The old tradition of Durbar Move came to an end. Beginning to show the way out to the pro-Pakistan and tainted employees sitting in the administration. For the first time, the government showed courage to act against anti-national elements. The first year of the reorganization was spent in enforcing the central law and streamlining the system. Domicile arrangement was made to protect the land and employment rights of the people of the state. The West Pakistani Refugee, Gorkha Samaj and Valmiki Samaj, who were deprived of citizenship for seventy years, also got domicile.
Their children also became eligible for all government posts. West Pakistani Refugee Sangharsh Samiti president Labba Ram Gandhi and Gorkha Samaj president Karuna Khetri say that the abrogation of 370 was a boon for them and the reorganization of the state gave way to the dream.
All over the country, the people of the Scheduled Tribes had forest rights, but for the first time here, the people of the Scheduled Tribes and the Gujjar Bakkarwals got this right.
The government ended discrimination by giving land and employment rights in Jammu and Kashmir to women and their husbands who married in other states. Three decades later, the initiative to get the rights of Kashmiri Pandits, who were forced to sell their properties in the Valley at throwaway prices during the era of terrorism, took place after three decades. So far 6000 complaints have been received on this online portal. The state government has disposed of two thousand cases. Right to sell agricultural land to Mahajan, Khatri and Sikh community. For a long time the people of these communities were deprived of this right.
