Government Withdraws J&K Reservation Bill

New Delhi, Nov 27: The government withdrew the J&K Reservation Bill from the Lok Sabha as central laws providing quota to the economically backward class are now applicable to the union territory post repeal of special provisions under Article 370.

The Act provided for reservation in appointment and promotions in certain state government posts to persons belonging to socially and educationally backward classes. It defined socially and educationally backward classes to include persons living in areas adjoining the Actual Line of Control.

The Bill amended this to include those persons living in areas adjoining the International Border, within the ambit of this reservation.
