Changing Domicile Law can prove dangerous for GoI: Saifuddin Soz

Srinagar: Former Union Minister, Prof. Saifuddin Soz on Saturday said that any change in the Jammu and Kashmir Domicile Laws at this stage is fraught with dangers.

“The Jammu and Kashmir State’s Domicile Laws were conceived in Maharaja Pratap Singh’s time, but, these laws were framed later in Maharaja Hari Singh’s time,” Soz in a statement issued here said.

He said that the democratic administration embodied the Domicile Laws in the States Constituent Assembly restricting the Rights of Ownership of Land and Rights of Employment in the J&K State Services to the State Subjects i.e. Permanent Resident of Jammu and Kashmir State.

“These laws were then safeguarded through Article 370 of the Constitution of India,” he said. “At present, the entire matter is before the Supreme Court of India for adjudication,” adding “This important and delicate matter should be left for the future elected governments in the State.”

Meanwhile, no change should be effected in the Domicile Laws which protect the Rights of Permanent Residents of J&K State, who are entitled to Employment in the J&K State Govt. Services and Ownership of Land etc.
