J&K quota bill passed by Lok Sabha

Jun 28, 2019 19:26 IST

The Lok Sabha on Friday passed the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2019. The bill ensures reservation in educational institutions and government jobs to those living within 10km of the International Border in Jammu on par with people living along the Line of Control in Kashmir. "After the ordinance came into force, those who live near the LoC have been benefited by the reservations. If the bill is passed, those living near the international border too will be benefited," Home Minisiter Amit Shah said.
