Article 370 was clearly meant to be a temporary provision included in the Constitution to cater to the specific requirements of the troubled times immediately after India’s independence
and the state’s accession to India. It was meant to remain in operation during the existence of the State’s Constituent Assembly.
On 15 February 1954 the assembly members
who were present cast a unanimous vote ratifying the state’s accession to India. The constituent assembly was later dissolved. However, for some political reasons of the time, a Separate Constitution of J&K remained.
It was Illegal, in which, while first J&K acceded to Union of India thus fulfilling the conditions of Instrument of Accession. Hence once accession was passed, the Constitution of India was valid in J&K, thus
rendering all else invalid if not illegal.

lost its Bengaluru? or has residents have lost their Nainital or their Manali?
None happened in the last 70 years and never will.

constitution of India.
Kashmiris are deliberately fed a heightened sense of fear and suspicion regarding their identity and cultural issues such as religion, customs, and language. Has
any state lost its culture, language, and identity?
In fact, by being a participative part of the country, everyone gets the best chance to promote their culture and identity to all
parts of India, and that definitely means, throughout the World.
Financial Power in Hands of every Common Kashmiri
With the advent of Agriculture, Tourism, and Industry, it is the common man Kashmiri, who can apply for a loan (like any other Indian Citizen and no Bank can deny) and create his own business venture, which till now was not available. Even very poor
ones are now part of Jan Dhan Yojana and other agricultural and small venture benefit schemes. Now it ensures access of each Kashmiri to financial services, namely, Banking/ Savings & Deposit Accounts, Remittance, Credit, Insurance, Pension in an affordable

Now each Kashmiri is entitled to the Central Government scheme of Atal Pension Yojana (APY). Launched on May 2015, APY completed five years of successful implementation this
year which assures to delivering old age income security to all young Kashmiri Youth from 18 to 40 years, particularly to the youth in the unorganized sector of Kashmir.
Gone are the
days when the average Kashmiri Family had to beg politicians for starting even a small shop. Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana (PMMY), introduced in Union Budget for FY 2016. MUDRA, which stands for Micro Units Development & Refinance Agency Ltd, a financial
institution by the Government of India for development and refinancing micro unit enterprises is wholly applicable to each individual Kashmiri.
Modernization and Infrastructure
