With the removal of Article 370, these major changes will come in Jammu and Kashmir (Before and Now)

The Central Government announced the removal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir in the Rajya Sabha. This article gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir. According to the announcement of the government, Jammu and Kashmir (J & K) have been divided into two parts. In this, Jammu and Kashmir will be a union territory, while Ladakh has been made the second Union Territory. Home Minister Amit Shah said in the Rajya Sabha that the Union Territory will be assembly in Jammu and Kashmir but assembly will not be held in Ladakh. He said that this step has been taken in view of the constant threat of cross-border terrorism. He said that the people of Ladakh had long been demanding to make it a union territory and this decision has been taken to fulfill the aspirations of the local people.

But now the question arises that what will change in Jammu and Kashmir by withdrawing Article 370? 

Here, we are telling you about the difference between the stay and the exit of Article 370:

Before
Jammu and Kashmir had its own flag. It was not mandatory for the citizens of there to honor the national flag of India.
Now
There will be no separate flag of Jammu Kashmir and like the other parts of India, the tricolor will be waved here too. Now people of the country will have to respect the national flag of the Tricolor.
Before
The right to vote was only to the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir. Citizens of other states of the country did not have the right to register their names in the voter list there.
Now
Citizens of other states of the country can now register their names and vote in the voters’ list of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. With the end of Article 370, the provision of ‘Right of Vote Only the permanent citizens of Jammu and Kashmir’ has been terminated.
Before
The Jammu and Kashmir assembly had a tenure of ten years, but in any state of the state, the state government does not have a term of more than 5 years.
Now
Like any state of the country, the term of the assembly will be 5 years in Jammu and Kashmir. The 6-year term of the Legislative Assembly will end as soon as Section 370 ends.
Before
The citizens of Jammu and Kashmir had dual citizenship (India and Kashmir).
Now
The people of Jammu and Kashmir will have only one Indian citizenship.
Before
Citizens of India were not allowed to buy land in Jammu and Kashmir, having the status of a special state. That is, people of other states could not buy land in Jammu and Kashmir.
Now
With the abolition of Article 370, people of other states will also be able to buy land in Jammu and Kashmir.
Before
If a woman of Jammu and Kashmir marries a person from another state of India, the citizenship of that woman will end. On the contrary, if he marries a person from Pakistan, he too will get citizenship of Jammu and Kashmir.
Now
Now since 370 is removed, dual citizenship has also ended itself. According to this, the woman of Jammu and Kashmir marries a person from another state, even then she will be called Indian only.
Before
Due to Article 370, Pakistanis living in Kashmir also got Indian citizenship.
Now
After the removal of Article 370, the people of Kashmir are now only Indian citizens. If a Pakistani wants to take Indian citizenship, then he will have to go through the entire process.
Before
The orders of the Supreme Court of India was not accepted in Jammu and Kashmir.
Now
Now the orders of the Supreme Court of India will also be accepted in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

    Forcefully amending the Constitution ignoring the opposition and claiming Kashmir issue an internal matter when the UN has been monitoring Kashmir since 1948. I wonder how Hitler was different.

    "But when this idea of the Nation, which has met with universal acceptance in the present day, tries to pass off the cult of collective selfishness as a moral duty, simply because that selfishness is gigantic in stature, it not only commits depredation, but attacks the very vitals of humanity." -Rabindranath Tagore
