Dear Editor,Let me first thank State Times for having become the only paper in J&K for often taking up issues of greater public interest in an unbiased manner. State Times by carrying the story ‘J&K UT Domicile Rules still do not accommodate non-PR spouse of a PRC holder daughter’ by Sr Journalist Daya Sagar in a series starting from 10th September issue has finally impressed upon J&K UT authorities to wake up from deep slumber and finally realise its mistake. Now General Administration vide its Circular No.27-JK(GAD) of 2020 dated 20-10-2020 has clarified that even if one of the parents (either Mother or Father) is in the possession of a Permanent Resident Certificate, the children would be entitled to get Domicile Certificate. It has further clarified that absence of PRC of the father of the applicant cannot disqualify the ward from obtaining a Domicile Certificate, since one of the necessary and sufficient conditions for obtaining Domicile Certificate by children of PRC of the parent, which by implication include Father or Mother.Discrimination of Women in J&K UT as regard to their rights and privileges has been partially taken care of except the right giving status of Domicile subject to their spouses as being given to a non Domicile women marrying a Domicile Subject.Thanks to State Times and Daya Sagar for highlighting the issue through your esteemed paper. The Lt Governor Manoj Sinha also deserves great appreciation for visualising the imperative need of removing discrimination being met out by Women State subject of erstwhile J&K State. I hope that he will also ensure giving status of Domicile subject to non Domicile husbands married to Domicile spouses of J&K UT as applicable to non Domicile Subject women marrying the Domicile spouses of J&K.Er.
