The Abrogation of Article 370

Author(s): Serah Sudhin
Abstract: Did you know that there are 488 articles in the Indian Constitution and only two of them are relevant exclusively to the erstwhile state of “Jammu & Kashmir’? That’s articles 370 and 35, for you Article 35A of the Indian Constitution empowers the Jammu and Kashmir state legislature to define who the state’s “permanent residents” are. It also lets the state legislature decide what special rights and privileges permanent residents will have. This article was added by a ‘Presidential Order’ and not as an Act of Parliament, in 1949. Article 370 gives the state of Jammu and Kashmir autonomous status. Before it became a part of India, J&K was a princely state that operated under British suzerainty. This article will shed light on how different entities (Govt of India vs. State of Kashmir) view these two articles as either constitutional or unconstitutional.
