Srinagar, April 04 (KNO): Amid widespread resentment in Jammu & Kashmir over the domicile law for appointments in government sector, the BJP-led Central government on Friday night amended the legal framework to reserve all gazetted and non-gazetted posts for J&K domiciles, which includes those who are living in UT for 15 years and children of central government employees serving in J&K for period of 10 years. According to wire service—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), making amendments in the Jammu & Kashmir Civil Services (Decentralization and Recruitment) Act, the Union Home Ministry, in a late night notification, reserved all jobs for J&K domiciles.
